Overview

Ibizan Hounds are used primarily as hunting or retrieving dogs, but make good companions. Well rounded and good-natured, these dogs are rather quiet and get along well with children. A very sensitive breed, they can become destructive if left alone.

Character

Nicknamed Beezers, this breed is intelligent, friendly, and loyal. A willful breed, they bore easily and require consistent training. Should be kept as members of the family. Respectful dogs, they love to be social.

Temperament

The Ibizan Hound should be socialized properly as a puppy around other animals and children as these are pack dogs. Protective and independent, this breed bred to hunt does not do well with small and more submissive animals.

Care

This average shedding breed is relatively low maintenance when it comes to grooming. A wipe down with a damp washcloth for the smooth haired should be sufficient. It is recommended for the rare longhaired to be occasionally brushed and clipped to prevent matting. Wirehaired does not need hand plucking, but would respond well to an occasional brushing.

Coat

The Ibizan Hound comes in three different varieties. Smooth haired, longhaired, and wire haired. Accepted colors are White and Red, White and Tan, or Solid white or Red. Most commonly seen in smooth haired variety.

Training

This breed requires a gentle hand, yet consistent training as they become bored easily. If not given the proper training and socialization, this breed can become a tyrant. Does well in hunting and retrieving sports. Eager to learn, and learns very well.

Activity

Recommended for a large sized yard, this breed requires good exercise. Privacy fence also recommended as this dog can easily jump a fence. This breed would do well in a somewhat active household as they have a lot of stamina. This breed should be protected from cold weather.

Ownership

Help reduce the number of dogs in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.
