Ibizan Hound Breed Maintenance
The Ibizan Hound does require daily exercise including daily walks for 20 to 30 minutes. He also needs plenty of time to play and use up any excess energy. The Ibizan Hound requires a fence that is at least six feet tall, he is an excellent jumper and can clear a five foot fence flat footed. He is relatively easy to house train. He wants to please his family but he can be somewhat stubborn. Basic obedience training is recommended, however, training needs to be upbeat and happy or he will refuse to respond to commands. Training sessions should be kept short and fun to keep his attention focused on the new commands being taught. The Ibizan Hound would make an excellent walking or jogging buddy. The Ibizan Hound has little body fat and therefore it is best to provide dog beds or cushions for him to sleep on. He will prefer to be on furniture with you. If he is being put in a crate, put a crate pad in there as well for his comfort.
