I bought this house last summer along with the octagonal run to use for grazing for my guinea pigs. Unfortunately i was cleaning it out in a hurry one day i was sliding the floor back underneath and put it in the wrong and it jammed, its been there ever since. It makes cleaning out a lot tougher but other than that never had a problem with it. Its fairly weather proof and durable and i use it all year round.l consider buying it again in future. Perfect for a hidey den attached to a run.
Excellent product, easy to put together and seems very sturdy. My young grandchildren are very pleased with it as they can watch and play with their pets outside as well as in now. Also bought the sun net(simple to install) and an outside hutch to attach to the run. I will be shopping with zooplus again.
I now have seven runs for my 8 buns and 2 piggies and they all love them. Only downside is the sun covers - as they are attached with velcro it takes my lot only a few minutes to chew through the straps! It would be good if you could make the covers with some kind of clips that the buns cant destroy! However, that aside, they are definately the best runs I have every had (and I've had a few over the past 25years)...
Think I confused my purchase with the other small pet hutch. This is the one I purchased. A great buy for a visit to the garden attached to a run for my in door house dwarf rabbit, while I hang washing out and cut lawn and stuff. She sat in it until she was ready to explore the outside air and grass. Would recommend to anyone who has an indoor rabbit who is not locked in a cage day and night, for those garden visits.
This run is really good, the larger run is an excellent size and my rabbits love it. Gives them plenty of room to stretch up and run about. Easily assembled, however, once assembled really needs two to move it (as you end up bending the pins if you do it alone). It can be taken down and stored flat no tools required! With the various doors and hatches it can be paired up with a hutch or small animal box to provide somewhere to hide. We had a tarpaulin made to fit across the top to protect from inclement weather. Unfortunately, our rabbits chewed through the velcro fastenings on the sun protection sheet!
bought the large version and it is the best run ive ever had, its huge and the rabbits love it as they can stand up and everything. i would however suggest printing off the instructions from here first as i was to discover their were no instructions in the box, struggled to put it together then to find when i finished that the instructions were on here
i got the larger of the sizes for my pair of rabbits. Perfect size, and easily put together, good quality, the only thing that was abit naff was the base, which is plastic (a good thing, better hygeine) but something wasnt put together right as the plastic bowed up abit making it not slide in and out particully well, but its only a little nuisance. Apart from that great product
I brought this for when my cats are outside and caught in the rain if im at work. they both love it. fit my 2 1yr old cats perfectly as they love to snuggle. im going to buy another one though because they are getting bigger and soon wont both fit.
My GPs and rabbits share this shelter when in the run together. They all love it. It is big enough for my 2 large GPs and 2 small rabbits to share.
It is easy to assemble and well built.
My only criticism is that the ramp is a bit slippery for the GPs and could do with some rungs.
I bought this for my guinea pigs as it was the biggest size I could find and it is brilliant! My guinea pigs love running around and I have filled it with lots of toys and things for them to do.
Only thing I would suggest is cable tie all around the top and this is a very secure run.

This is the 3rd Trixie run i've purchased for my rabbits and i'm very pleased with it. Even though it was the largest size it was easy enough to assemble without any assistance. Two of these runs have been left outside for many seasons but they show no signs of weathering except for a little rust on the door-chain. One of my rabbits is clever enough to open a sliding door latch so i have to clip it closed for safety. Although i've found Trixie runs to be well made, they're not always thoughtfully made when it comes to adapting them to align with or secure to other Trixie products.
This is without doubt the best thing I have ever bought for my guinea girls! I actually bought the run elsewhere about a year or two ago and I am in no way disappointed! I bought the largest available for my two girls and I finally have a run that I feel they are totally safe in. Before this I was using a homemade run, and I really was worried leaving them out for the day with something without a secure roof, I have two cats and one in particular is a real mischief so I didn't dare leave them alone in it. This is great as it has its own roof and I feel happy leaving them out all day in this. I'm really confused by the previous review saying their guineas escaped because the spacing in the bars is about two inches wide and I can't imagine that happening at all. I really can't recommend this highly enough, when the weather starts to get nice I set it up in the garden and leave it there til pretty much winter and it is totally up to the job. I'm considering getting a second and combining the two. I really really encourage anyone considering it to buy one, its been perfect for my two girls.
i had a broody hen that needed a cosy and comfatable environment for her as well as her eggs/chicks when they hatch. the house sits in the run so that the mother hen can take her chicks out as well as keep them warm at night (or if she wants a afternoon rest) it has enough space for quite a while until they get too big in which case they roost on top!!!
Ginger + Minty+Parsnip+echo+Kiwi+Zinc+Sophia love this
My two guinea pigs love this run what are some people talking about my two piggies can't escape don't bother with the sun shade I used old towles which work equally well don't buy the small one to small ANYTHING especially large rabbits I brought it AGAIN ONCE for old Parsnip and another for the 4 girls so overall this has made seven piggies happy I've even seen my two other pigs Cinnamon and Tabasco who have the same size run in wood eyeing it up.
This is a excellent run,it's large and has good head space for my rabbits to stand up. It has enough space for eveything my rabbits need. Its in my bedroom and is a really good shape. Very good delivery aswell as it was fast. Easy to put up too and no screwdrivers needed. Best of all my rabbits love the extra room =]
This is fab! I have added it onto my exsisting run for more play space and when the weather is nice, I put it on the grass. A bit heavy to move by yourself, but it is a large pen! l worth the money although I wouldn't leave buns in it overnight.
We got the biggest size of Trixie outdoor metal run after getting the classic wooden 6ft x 3ft run and it rotting through but there is no comparison with the metal run. This is SO much bigger, so much head room for our binkying rabbit, so many doors for easy access, so much space and seems roomier because you don't have the lumps of wood holding it all together. Our rabbit loves it, it is the best we have found next to letting her out and running around the garden. You do need 2 people to move it but we found you need 2 people to move the wooden one anyway, so no hardship there. If you want a happy bunny, this is the one to go for! Popcorn (our rabbit) recommends it!
