Behaviour

Their cute appearance and size appeals to many pet owners but as a small rabbit the Netherland Dwarf requires regular handling when young to avoid problems associated with nervousness (including aggression). Owners should be experienced, so perhaps not the best breed for young children.

Ann,

My husband came home on Monday morning with a 3 month old,pure breed (whatever that means),Netherland dwarf for my 3 kiddos. I am not a fan of having pets,as I am exhausted from taking care of my kiddos,which all are competitive gymnasts that go at different times.Between the constant cleaning, cooking,shopping, driving kids around and taking them out,there is pretty much no time for me to take care of a pet. I have to say that he is the 2nd sweetest creature ever (my favorite being a horse) . My problem with him is his pooping everywhere in the house.He just runs and poops in the same time.He’s been sniffing every corner of our condo so far. I hope this problem will stop soon as I know he needs time,and we only had him for 2 days, but my patience is running out.

Annie,

My netherland, Minty, has white fur with a black/grey nose, grey/black ears and grey paws which look like little boots! At first I wanted a puppy (who doesnt) but I had to settle for a rabbit, because of Minty’s little black nose and boots he caught my eye straight away! At first my mum wasnt 100% sure about having a rabbit as all our other pets turned out to be unfriendly but now 1 year on she is obssesed with him and i think she may even love him more than me and my sister, anyway netherland‘s are really the friendliest rabbits out there, they have such lovely personalities and in my opinion they are better than having a puppy because they love cuddles, they love to sit with you anywhere whether on the floor, on your bed or on a sofa and you dont have to wash them or take them for walks (oh and they are SOO clean, and they dont poo when they are out of there cage they hod it in LOL) and trust me, when they lick there little lips your heart will melt! Overall I am totally smitten with my little bunny and netherlands are the same around everyone whether it be children or older people and fyi if getting one please dont leave it out in the cold, mine lives in our conservitary and he even gets cold in there, so if thinking of a pet i would definitely recomend a netherland dawrf (that is if you are looking for cuddles)

Make great pets for all. – Xangex,

I have plans on showing my Netherland Dwarfs, so I have a few. They are very friendly and great ideal rabbits for 1st time owners and children – even small children. Some nethies can be a little scatty when they are young but they do turn out to be very loving rabbits who love attention and cuddles. I have 2 as house rabbits and they are very clean. Litter training them for indoors or out is very easy. I think the Eglu’s for rabbits are idea for this breed.
