Foraging treats

We believe enrichment is essential for a caged pet's wellbeing as it is not a natural environment for any animal.

On the first night's stay your Rabbit/Guinea pig will be offered a foraging treat to help them settle. This will usually contain some lavender or chamomile.

We would advise regular foraging treats to help alleviate boredom - Please ask for details on booking.
