Daily Routine


According to Geoff Russell, author of “Mini Encyclopedia of Rabbit Breeds & Care” (2008),

‘In the wild a rabbit’s routines are laid down annually, seasonally, and even daily ... Anything that upsets those routines is likely to bring chaos to the rabbits life... it really should not be too difficult to fit your rabbit’s routines into your everyday lifestyle.’


bend_over_backwardsBarnsley Bunny Boarding offer a personalised service based around the individual needs of your pet; and while we adhere to a daily routine within the Rabbitry, we offer flexibility in our approach when catering for all our guest’s daily needs; for example different feeding times, food blending for toothless rabbits, syringe feeding, probiotic and vitamin supplements etc.

Please ensure you let us know when we complete the booking form of any special needs your pet may require when staying with us.


Wake up call


At around 8 o’clock each morning, we open the Rabbitry door and say “Good Morning” as a wakeup call to all our boarders. 

The radio is turned on to BBC Radio 2 and the windows opened giving boarders time to wake up and start their new day.  We also take this time to check each individual guest ensuring all boarders are awake, happy and well.




Breakfast is served between 9.00am and 10.00am and consists of a morning portion of premium ReadiGrass or Excel Forage;

Excel varieties include: Dandelion and Marigold, Birch Bark and Chamomile



    housekeepingA Housekeeping Service is provided each morning after breakfast ensuring your pet’s soiled areas are removed, and the hutch and litter trays are sanitised with disinfectant wipes and replaced with fresh clean wood shavings and wood based cat litter. Bedding from the previous day is removed and any soiled areas are cleaned and Bunny Beds are refilled with a fresh supply of hay. Any uneaten vegetables are discarded and feeding bowls cleaned if required. 



    lunchtimeLunch consisting of your pet's dry mix is usually served between 12.00 p.m. and 1.00 p.m.  However we are flexible, and are willing to adhere to your own feeding times.
    Bottles and bowls of water are also replenished at this time and probiotics and vitamin supplements are replaced daily.



    Supper is served after 8.00 p.m.  when each guest receives a portion of mixed seasonal vegetables, we also take this time to replenish hay and water

    Please let us know at check-in if your pet's digestion is intolerent to fresh produce.



    bedtimeBedtime is at 10.00 p.m. when a final check is made to ensure all our guests are settled for the night. The radio is turned off, the windows closed, curtains are drawn, and the lights remain on throughout the night.
