You can let your rabbit out of his cage to explore designated areas of the house and yard. If you do this however, you'll want to make sure that he isn't near any electrical cords, toxic materials, or expensive furniture. Rabbits love to chew and this could be hazardous to the rabbit and expensive for you. If he is let out into the yard, make sure it is fenced with no holes, and make sure that there are no plants that are poisonous for rabbits (such as rhododendrons) and that the grass has not been chemically treated.
Rabbits love to chew! Their teeth are constantly growing and so therefore they should be provided with chewing material. Twigs and small logs from the backyard (as long as they haven't been chemically treated), or flavored chew sticks available at pet stores for both birds and small animals all make great chewing items. They also like chew things that move such as paper towel or toilet paper rolls, small cardboard boxes, and even some shredded paper.

If you have decided that a rabbit is the right pet for you, then your next decision is where you will get one. It is worth checking to see if there is some sort of rabbit rescue in your area that has bunnies that need a home. If not, then pet stores and private breeders are the best places to look for one. If you are not picky about the specific breed you buy, a pet store can be the more convenient route than the breeder since you can also purchase all of the needed items for the rabbit's care during the same visit. This pet rabbit care information list will make it easy to get started confidently caring for your new pet bunny.

People who share their home with rabbits, know what is normal or abnormal behavior with their rabbit and will act promptly to seek proper treatment. Because companion house rabbits become actual members of the home, these caretakers will not think twice about seeking veterinary attention or any costs incurred to help their long eared family member. So unless you are a commercial rabbitry, we highly encourage you to house your rabbit indoors. Most cat and dog rescues/shelters want indoor homes for their adoptable pets as well.
