Litter training a bunny

Mr Nibbles doesn't get it... he thinks the boxes are for sleeping in and pees in any empty corner. So I thought great two littler boxes and I will put other stuff in the corner. Didn't work... not he uses the middle of the cage :(

I had a Bunny once.

I used a Cat Litter Box with a Cover over it, standard cat litter.

My Bunny always used it as long is was placed in a room with Hardwood Floors or Tile, one time I moved it to a room with carpet, he preferred the carpet ...lol...

The cover is essential a litter box with no shielding does not work, he would throw littler everyone without the cover

While we don't let him have much free roam yet as we were told he has to use the litter box in his cage before you let him roam. True or no?

Mine always had free roam in a certain room, the room was guarded by child gates so he could not get out of that room.

Never tried to train him, he just used the litter box as needed and slept in his nest box when tired.

I called him Thumper, as he would thump very loudly with his back legs when I scolded him after misbehaving

Occasionally he would jump on the couch and leave a prize , but thankfully he learned that was a bad idea

Years ago my sister had a rabbit when we were both still at home with our parents. He had free run of the house and used the cat's litter box - just picked that up on his own. I can only assume he followed the cat there and watched as he did like to follow the cat around. There was one rug at the back door that he would pee on every now and then for some reason otherwise his bathroom habits were quite good.
