It is believed that a National Dutch Club was first formed in 1884 and was so successfull and forward thinking that the rabbit fancy of the time requested that this club catered for all breeds. The National Dutch Club duly obliged and became known as the United Kingdom Rabbit Club, the fore runner of the British Rabbit Council. Several of the National Dutch Club's members decided to re-form the original club under its original name and the two clubs existed side by side for some time. Following the collapse of the United Kingdom Rabbit Club and the re-integration with the Dutch Club the United Kingdom Dutch Rabbit Club was born.
Since 1902 the club has grown from strength to strength as has the popularity of the rabbits it caters for. Over 120 years after its creation, The Premier Club still boasts an active membership who undertake the breeding and exhibition of top quality Dutch Rabbits in the UK with an enthusiasm to be admired.
