Best Chinchilla Dust Bath House [3 Options + Tips]

Part of owning a chinchilla is ensuring that you provide adequate care.

For anyone who owns a chinchilla, we know how much these adorable rodents love to roll around in their dust.

Not to mention, we understand how important it is for their hygiene and care to provide them with dust baths on a regular basis.

With that in mind, you have two things to consider.

First, you need to ensure that you are providing the best chinchilla dust possible. Additionally, you need to make sure that you are providing one of the best dust bathhouses for your chinchilla.

3 Best Chinchilla Dust Bath Houses Breakdown and Information

Overall, dust bathhouses for chinchillas are straightforward, and you don’t have much you need to consider.

If it’s budget-friendly and can get the job done, it will suffice.

However, even with that in mind, it doesn’t mean you can’t go for a stylish dust bathhouse or select a dust bathhouse that presents a fully enclosed area for your chinchilla to roll around in.

This can help keep the dust from going all over the room and make your life that much easier.

As promised, let’s break down the 3-dust bathhouses I chose as the best options in my table above.

Here is that quick overview for you.

#1- Kaytee Chinchilla Bath House (Assorted Colors)

The first thing I love about this dust bathhouse is the fact that several different colors are offered.

Currently, you have the option to choose between the following colors:

  • Purple
  • Pink
  • Blue
  • Light Blue

I also love the size of this dust bath enclosure. It’s a comfortable 9.25 x 9 x 8.5 and fully enclosed on both sides, the back and the top.

This helps dramatically control the amount of dust that’s going to fly into the room during your chinchilla’s dust bath, which, in return, can help with allergies.

I also love using this dust bathhouse as my secret weapon to return my chinchilla to her cage when she’s in one of her moods.

Train her to come to her dust bath by tapping on the dust bath with your finger.

We all know how much chinchillas love their dust bath, so if your chinchilla decides to run off or run away in their play area and hide, tap on the dust bath to lure them back out of hiding.

It works like a charm.

While dust baths aren’t the most significant purchase you will make for a chinchilla, I still believe they can be ranked from best to not so good, and this dust bath has gotten the job done for me.

That’s why it was easy to rank this dust bath house #1.

#2- Trixie Dust and Sand Bath House for Chinchillas

I’m also a big fan of the Trixie Dust Bath House for Chinchillas.

It’s another enclosure that ensures that dust will have a tough time escaping from due to being fully enclosed except for the entry point.

I also like its style and unique look it has.

Lastly, a cool feature of this dust bathhouse is that it disconnects.

The top can separate from the bottom, making it easy to discard dust or clean the enclosure.

Overall, coming in a few dollars cheaper than the Kaytee that’s ranked #1, I think it is still a great option to consider for anyone wanting to save 2-3 bucks.

#3- Chinchilla Dry Bath Dust Bath House

Finally, I still am a fan of this dust bathhouse for chinchillas.

This one strikes me as an excellent option for a few reasons.

First and foremost, it’s the most enclosed option of them all, allowing the entry point to also close.

Just ensure that you don’t leave your chinchilla inside of this dust bathhouse without supervision for long extended periods.

I also like its size compared to the other 2 options providing slightly more space.

This dust bath allows you to lock the lid and detach the cover if you choose for easy cleaning and dust discarding.

Overall, for the price, I don’t think you can go wrong with this option.

Considerations to Keep in Mind

As I said earlier, the dust bathhouse is one of several items you need when you initially purchase and adopt your chinchilla.

It’s also one of the cheapest items and accessories you need to purchase for your chinchilla.

Especially compared to other more substantial purchases that you always need to plan for, such as finding the best chinchilla cage possible for your new pet.

Pick any one of those 3 dust bathhouses broken down for you above, and you will be in great shape.

Final Thoughts

At the end of the day, a dust bathhouse is one of the required items for your chinchilla.

They love it and look forward to rolling in these enclosures.

Be sure to allow them to do so 2-3 times per week for optimal results and healthy fur.

Outside of that, have some fun with it and choose a dust bathhouse and color that matches your chinchilla’s personality or even gender.

Chili and I wish you the best of luck with your new chinchilla.
