When I was in 4-H, I had several breeds of rabbits. I had many large breeds of rabbits through the years, but my interest soon transferred to mini breeds. I was drawn to them because of their size. They stay small even as adults. They are easier to handle than large rabbits.
My first mini breed was a Mini Lop buck, who I named Sparky. He was very friendly and gentle. I trained him to take hops on a leash outside with me. He would come to his cage door every time I opened it and would eat pellets out of my hand.
I never had a house rabbit, but one of my friends had a Mini Lop as one. He was easy to litter train. She even trained her bunny to come when his name was called.
I recommend Mini Lops to any one who is interested in getting a pet bunny. Younger children should have adult supervision until they learn how to handle rabbits the correct way. They can be timid and can scratch and bite if scared.
