Would neutering a doe reduce her burrowing instinct?

i know there are health benefits, but would a spay cut down on the burrowing instinct as well?

Yes it most likely would and if spayed, she could be bonded with another rabbit, which will make her happier all round? smile

It should do. It'll also reduce any aggressive tendencies (unspayed does can be a bit vicious). And can make litter training easier.

In short yes, but some rabbits do dog more than others regardless of neutering.

It should do, but it will also reduce her risk of uterine cancer from 95% at the age of 5 to zero. Do it for more than the burrowing instinct!

It should do, yes. When my last girlie bunny was spayed it certainly calmed her down.
