The rabbit is the third most popular pet in the UK. They were introduced to Britain by the Romans and we were keeping them as pets by the nineteenth century. By the middle of the century, the showing of rabbits had started and the number of recognised breeds has continued to grow since. Rabbits make excellent pets and are very popular with children. They are most active at sunrise and sunset and are sociable creatures that live in large groups in the wild. They are also intelligent creatures and are readily trained (see Issue 13 of Pet Focus and our feature on clicker training rabbits).
