Q: Is a Holland Lop a good pet? A: Holland Lops have great temperament, they are gentle and small, they make great pets, but not for everyone. They are prey animals and rather be on the ground, if trained since birth they can easily adapt to being held. Before buying one you should make a self checkout of how much time are you willing to invest in this new relationship, they like to play and be with people. Holland Lops are not good for small children as they are fragile and sensitive to noise, sudden movements and not always wanting to be held.
Q: Who makes better pets, boys or girls? A: Girls do not have cycles and they are induced ovulators, which means they don't have menstruation or 'HEAT". However girls have been reported to be territorial around 6 months of age and not always tolerating young children. Boys are great and love to be pet and loves attention, contrary to a lot of people belief rabbits do not spray to mark they territory instead based on my personal experience, they spray when they are unhappy and bored. Q:Do they need vaccination? A: Not here in the USA. Q: How much space do they need? A: Just like any other specie, rabbits of all breeds love being free so the biggest you can afford the better. They also need a outside playground with shade to exercise. Remember if your winter is like in Utah, plan ahead for exercise time during winter months. Q: How efficient is your potty train program? A: All my Herd uses their litter boxes, they use it for urine and most of their poop. The babies are potty trained by their mother as soon as they come out of the nest box, they smell mom's pee and go in also. At 9 weeks they are perfect with their urine and about 80%-85% on their poop. At pick up time I will give you a guide sheet to the continue success of your baby training. Complete potty trained program is available, please ask me for details. Q: How hard it is to clean after my bunny? A: If you continue my training program as I will instruct you, you should have to wash their litter box once a week and still have a smell reduction of 95%. You will be able to keep your baby indoors without odors. Again that's if you follow my instruction. They can be confused and untrained quite easily. Most of my clients are completely satisfied! Their Hutch will be pretty clean except for weekly vacuuming and washing of bows and water bottles. pretty simple if you ask me :) Q: Do you recommend Spaying and Neutering? A: Absolutely!

Neutering will fix that problem if your rabbit is prone to spraying. Q: How long is a Holland Pregnancy? A: 31 days average. Q: Will potty training stop me from cleaning the Hutch?
