With deer-like attributes, the Ibizan Hound has a tall stature and large pointed ears. This sight hound was used to hunt rabbits on the island of Ibiza. One of his attributes is his ability to jump high and easily leap over high fences. Therefore, it is important to make sure that your fenced-in yard is high enough to keep this dog in the yard.
The Ibizan Hound coat can be red, white or a little bit of both. Standing at 22.5 to 27.5 inches high at the shoulder, the Ibizan Hound is a tall breed and needs a good amount of daily exercise.
As a family dog, the Ibizan Hound is kind and gentle. The Ibizan Hound is loyal to hisfamily members, but will not be overly friendly or sociable with strangers. Make sure that you get your pup outside each day for a good amount of walks and play time. Due to his large size, the Ibizan Hound takes large strides and you may need to jog a bit to keep up with your Ibizan Hound. This breed is also happy playing and running around in a fenced-in yard. Again, remember the height of the fencing to ensure that your Ibizan Hound doesn’t find its way out of the yard.
Grooming the Ibizan Hound is not a timely task at all. The Ibizan Hound has a short coat which just needs a brushing every once in a while. Training the Ibizan Hound can be accomplished and once this breed is properly trained, he will heed its owner’s commands with ease.
