Ibizan Podenco

Ibizan Podencos are famed for their high jump skills, even from a standing start. They have even been known to climb, so you will need a very high fence to ensure they don’t clear it.

About the Ibizan Podenco

are mainly used to hunt rabbits, both day and night. They track these animals very easily, even in dense cover, due to their excellent smell, which they combine with their hearing more than their sight.

Agile and clever, they tend to have little trouble catching rabbits, especially in a pack. They are also used to hunt hare and large game. They are good retrievers. Packs should be made up of females with a single male, as males will fight rather than working together.
