Firstly, let us define a run: A run is a place to put your pet, typically a rabbit or guinea pig, into for it to exercise. A run usually has a covered area, so that if it rains whilst your pet is inside, the pet can stay dry. Also, a run is usually bigger than the cage in which you keep your pet. It is important that the run be secure, and this is achieved by strong wire mesh, good quality wood that has been coated to prevent it from rotting (this usually needs doing once a year), and good joints. These features are important because foxes may try to get into the run. There are two types of runs- those that fold and those that do not fold. Runs ... Read the complete review

WE invested in a folding run because as we were often away in the US, it was easy to fold and transport in my car to the friends who were looking after our piggies. It seemed a brilliant idea, and it was relatively sturdy and seemed safe....... Having invested in one, I now would never recommend them to anyone. Our folding run was the reason we lost 3 of our 4 beautiful guinea pigs to a fox/dogs. We came back one day to find that the run had been forced into by some creature, and 3 out of our 4 guineas were eaten.
