5 Netherland Dwarf Rabbit Facts
- Netherland Dwarf rabbits can be trained quite easily and they have similar behavioural characteristics to cats and dogs. Training does depend on the dedication of the owner, but if you put the time in you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts.
- Despite being very small, this breed can handle plenty of play time and handling. They will want lots of toys and time with you to help keep their brains active and to release energy.
- Some Netherland Dwarfs are nervous and can have a wild temperament. Avoid these unwanted behaviours with plenty of handling from a very early age.
- Overgrown molars and enamel spurs are a common health complaint. Help to keep your rabbits’ teeth healthy by providing lots of roughage that wears down the teeth, and rabbit friendly chews and gnaws.
- This breed can live happily inside and outside the home, but they will need a lot of space and exercise wherever you decided to house your pet.
