So Who am I?
I am hobbyist show rabbit breeder who shows all over the country, either at rabbit shows or as a private display at country shows, garden shows and family shows. The best place it is said to get a pet rabbit from is directly from a private hobbyist show rabbit breeder. However, it should also be remembered when looking to home a pet rabbit that many rescue centers also have rabbits looking for new homes, please check if any rescues have the breed you are looking for. If you are not going to breed or show yourself then it doesn't matter how pedigree or not a rabbit is, just how healthy it is and what it looks like. Rabbit rescues are inundated with unwanted pets, often bought from pet stores or the result of unwanted litters from rabbits bought from a pet shop that could not even sex a baby rabbit. Please help the rabbit rescues if you can. Remember that a true rabbit rescue will only rescue and rehome rabbits and not breed them as well.
The advantages of getting a rabbit from a private hobbyist show rabbit breeder like myself is that my breeding has been carefully planned and thought through with regard to producing robust, healthy rabbits of good temperament and hopefully I can sex my offspring correctly. I have only pure bred rabbits and I have aimed to produce rabbits that are of good size and a good example of the breed in accordance with the breed show standard, with the intention of keeping some of the young rabbits for myself for showing and or new breeding stock. However there will always be surplus rabbits that do not come up to show standard that I don't keep. These are offered to people wanting a pet rabbit, or to other show breeders looking to introduce a new blood line. Unless otherwise state or agreed all rabbits are re-homed as pets only.

I have been a member of the British Rabbit Council for over 25 years and a member of the Rabbit Welfare Association for over 8 years. I keep and breed eight types of rabbits these are: Dwarf Lops, French Lops , Mini Lionlops, Mini Lops, Lionheads, Dutch, Tri Dutch, and Netherland Dwarfs. I also keep an English Lop, a Continental Giant cross, Spot and Red the house bunnies and a Argente Noir who make up the "Display Team’, with one of each of the breeds above.
All of my rabbits are kept and cared for to the highest standard. I breed purely for myself and show purposes, and my rabbits are not breed for profit making. I pride myself on looking after my Rabbits, breeding them for my own personal pleasure, and only letting my surplus bunnies that are 8 weeks plus go to suitable homes. I can and do refuse a home, if i believe that the person or family are not suitable. Any funds they generate are used for the up-keep and welfare of my rabbits. Anyone breeding and keeping rabbits correctly will make a loss on the sale of these rabbits. In July 2008 I launched an internet shop to help fund my ever growing bunny family. If you are homing a bunny as a pet from me, please also support me by buying your cage or your accessories here. If you decide to go elsewhere or you already have a cage please check with me beforehand that it is suitable for the breed of rabbit that you are wishing to home. If you have the wrong size cage I will not let you have one of my bunnies.
I regularly handle my young rabbits, this makes them confident about being handled, all my rabbits leave me hand tame. I will take the time to make sure you understand what is involved with keeping and caring for rabbits. I will show you how to approach and handle your chosen pet. I will also give you a starter pack, this includes a weeks worth of the food that rabbit has been eating, a care leaflet plus on-going advice for the care and well -being of your pet.
A neutering and bonding service is available for people wanting pairs or a companion for an existing bunny that's on it's own.
Don't be surprised if I gives you the third degree, I need to make sure you are a suitable owner and you have the correct size home and understand, a rabbit requires a commitment of care for it during it's life. This could be 5-10 years or longer. The commitment required in caring for your rabbit includes not only routine feeding, care and time spent with the rabbit but also the provision of veterinary treatment if the rabbit becomes ill which can be costly. Although proper care will go a long way to ensuring that any rabbit remains happy and healthy there may still be times when prompt veterinary treatment is needed and once a rabbit is ill it can deteriorate quickly. Insurance companies do offer veterinary insurance cover for pet rabbits.
you would like to reserve a rabbit or rabbits, I will require a
£10-£25* non-refundable deposits to secure the pet of your choice, your
deposit will only be returned due to unforeseen circumstances on my
behalf and not because you have changed your mind.
