The short answer is yes! I love my little bunny. In my opinion dwarf rabbits are one of the best caged pets you can get. They are small and low-maintenance, and they can become very loving and loyal. If you are looking for a small house pet I definitely recommend getting a dwarf bunny! However there are some things you should be aware of, especially when it comes to dwarf rabbit care.
Care of Netherland Dwarf Rabbits.
Your dwarf bunny requires an indoor cage with room for her to move about. At minimum, get a dwarf rabbit a cage that's 4 feet wide, 2 feet deep and 2 feet high, but bigger is better. Wire cages are a good choice, particularly because they have adequate ventilation, but wire floors hurt and eventually ulcerate fragile bunny feet; buy a cage with a solid bottom or cover the wires with wood or corrugated cardboard. Cover the cage bottom in a thick layer of straw, hay or aspen shavings. Remove soiled bedding daily and replace it all and clean the cage thoroughly once or twice per week.It's easy to litter train your dwarf bunny, who's smarter than you may realize. She'll naturally choose one corner of her cage to function as her bathroom. Put an appropriately sized litter box in that corner and line it with newspaper. Then add in pelleted paper litter or any grass hay besides alfalfa. Never use pine or cedar shavings or clay cat litters, all of which are potentially hazardous to your dwarf rabbit. Empty and replace the contents of the litter box daily.
