Yep! It grows long enough to be trimmed every 3 months, though in winter we won't clip it quite as short (keep him a bit warmer in our Minnesota cold). If you leave it it'll keep going to get too long for the bun to easily do necessary things like groom - and while some people grow the hair as long as possible (seriously google Angora Rabbit) I find that somewhat abusive.

Yes, he looks RIDICULOUS! And his head looks absolutely huge. Turns out he's much smaller than we though he was....
He looks like the Spec Saver ad we have in the UK!

Look it up on Youtube, it is the one with the shepherd!

Love furminators for cats, rabbits, etc., but they should NEVER be used on double coated dogs. A furminator doesn't discriminate - in addition to the undercoat it actually CUTS the topcoat. It's basically a clipper blade on a stick.

I used to use one on my GSD and her coat took a long time to recover. She looked practically bald!

I nice undercoat rake and pin brush are best for double coated dogs.

That last picture is one that I consider somewhat abusive (maybe the others to a degree). That rabbit can't do rabbit things - can't groom, can't hop around, can't SEE, can't play. And you know because he's a show bun and has that long fur he's probably stuck in a tiny square show cage because god forbid he ruff up his beautiful fur in a normal hutch. IDK, I think it's okay to an extent, but when you get extreme like that...
