worst breed NEW
by: Anonymous

I will not buy another Netherland dwafts. She bite me all the time even after spayed. It was her last year or so of life that she actually became a good bunny. By then no one in the family wanted anything to do with her.

I would say a holland lop they are cute and cuddly the mini lop is good as well but the best is the flemish giant but there big but cuddly and docile. A rabbit is what you make so handle it a lot and get it used being loved on since there kids good luck

Netherland dwarf is great
by: Anonymous

my netherland dwarf loves to be picked up and petted, unlike other rabbits. They do not shed and mine is very patient and cuddly.

Best bunny breed for children
by: Anonymous

The best breed of bunny for a child is a holland lop . They are very small and active bunnies . They are very lowing and good natured . They weigh in between 2-4 pounds , I prefer bucks over does just because does are more dominant and bite more than bucks . Holland lops in general are very sweet and loved to be loved on and like to ply and cuddle with their owner . A holland lop would be the bet bunny for a child .:)

best breed of rabbit
by: Anonymous

I strongly believe that the best breed of rabbits for anyone is the mini lop. They are a small to medium size so they don't eat as much as larger breeds, but are still very loving and playful. I own two mini lops. Both love attention and one even follows everyone around (even my large dog).

Rabbits being left alone
by: Anonymous

Not sure what you mean by being left alone. For how long? And where? in the garden/shed/indoors?
It is definitely a bad idea to leave a single rabbit alone for long periods as they love company and, in my opinion, even if rabbits are in pairs , it is not that good an idea, if you are talking about long and regular periods of being left alone.
If the rabbits have each other for company, then it all depends on how long you are talking about and how often.

Rabbit Breeds.
by: Sandra

Rabbits have different personalities even within the same breed. Instead of looking for a particular breed, I would look at a shelter and look for a particular personality.

I have three Tans and ALL have very different personalities.

Rabbit size
by: Anonymous

Smaller rabbits can be very vulnerable to oover excited children who love cuddling ( squeezing) their pets, often unintentionally harming them !
Why not try one of the larger breeds such as a Flemish Giant ?
Thye are a much more docile and less nervous animal too.

Rabbits and children
by: Anonymous

I have read that because rabbits are not keen on being picked up and cuddled they may not be great for children. However I had them as a child and used to sit in their pet house for hours with them climbing on to my lap for strokes. I personally think that the slightly larger lops are good as they are soft natured. Best of luck. Look forward to seeing pics in the future!
