Many families keep Holland Lop and Netherland Dwarf as pets because they are inquisitive, highly intelligent, and have amazingly unique personalities.
So, what exactly is the difference between the Holland Lop and Netherland Dwarf?

Behavior and Temperament: Holland Lop vs Netherland Dwarf
If you own Holland Lops, Netherlands will be a bit of a shock! They have loads of personality. However, there’s something about the tiny ears and grumpy faces of the Netherland Dwarf that is melting your heart. What they lack in size they make up with attitude!
Netherlands quickly became a very popular pets and exhibitions breed, however, they do not actually make good pets for children. They can be quite skittish and even aggressive in some cases. This was a larger problem in the past, but careful breeding has reduced the risk of obtaining a rabbit with these qualities.
It is still possible though and care should be taken when considering purchasing one of these rabbits. If not socialized enough when introduced to their new environment, they can still be.
Hollands on the other hand, are the one of the only breeds that has been specifically bred for temperament, so they tend to be fairly mellow and social.
Hollands are like the golden retrievers of the rabbit world, and they make great pets for children.
Whereas Netherlands are more like greyhounds.
Netherlands in general are near the opposite end of the spectrum, they tend to be more standoffish and less social, as well as very very bossy and often skittish.
(Of course this is just a generalization, and you can find any personality type in any breed!)
Holland Lop vs Netherland Dwarf as pets – What to expect
From a health standpoint, the Holland Lops are slightly more prone to heat stroke because of the shape of their ears.
On the other hand the Netherland Dwarf is more likely to have nasal or dental issues as they get older, because of the shape of their heads. Therefore you can weigh those differences although they aren’t that big of a deal. A Holland Lop can have both issues – it has the dwarfing gene.
