Ibizan Hound


Ibizan Hounds are primarily hunting and retrieving dogs, but they also make excellent companions. These dogs are good natured, well rounded and rather quiet. They get along great with children. They're also very sensitive dogs and can become destructive if they're left alone for too long.


Ibizan hounds need lots of exercise and should have access to a large yard with a high, secure privacy fence because they can jump a fence with no problem. They need to be with a family of active members because they have lots of stamina. They should, however, be sheltered from the cold.


Ibizan Hounds are average shedders that require minimal maintenance in grooming. Simply wipe them down using a damp washcloth on the smooth hair. The rare longhair breed need to be brushed occasionally and clipped to keep away matting. The wirehaired dogs don't need to be hand plucked but do well with being brushed occasionally.


The Ibizan Hounds, called Beezers, are friendly, loyal and intelligent. They're rather willful, easily bored and must have consistent training. These dogs need to be treated as family members. Ibizan Hounds are very respectful and love being social.


There are three different varieties of the Ibizan Hound. There are longhaired, wirehaired, and smooth haired. Colors of their coats are Red and White, Tan and White, Solid White or Solid Red. Most of the time, the dogs you'll see are the smooth haired ones.


Ibizan Hounds need to be properly socialized at a very young age and exposed to other animals and children because they're pack dogs. They're independent and protective. Since they were bred to be hunting dogs, they don't get along with small and submissive animals.


The Ibizan Hounds require gentleness and consistency in training because they get bored so quickly. If these dogs don't get the right socialization and training, they can turn into tyrants. They're eager to learn, and do well as hunting and retrieving dogs.
