The Ibizan Hound is a wonderful family pet that craves to be a functional part of the family.  Early training and socialization will help the Ibizan bond with the family and probably accept other non-canine pets (remember its born to hunt small animals).  The Ibizan is not “keep outside” dog, and if you don’t plan to allow it in the home don’t get one.  Left alone outside they can become destructive.  Ibizan’s require plenty of exercise.  If you let it run outside make sure you have a high fence as this dog’s jumping abilities could probably win a slam-dunk contest.  And, once out, they run free with little regard of their surroundings.  You won’t be able to catch it, and it probably will not respond to commands.  Its three types of coats (smooth, long, and wire-haired) are easy to maintain.

About Ibizan Hounds



We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
