This is a free Database for all Podenco Ibicenco /
Ibizan Hounds. The goal is to have as many participate
in this as possible. Information on any Ibizan

show, or pet quality.
The goal of this website is to
bring pedigrees, pictures, health information, titles
together in one place. This website was started in 2006 and is
growing every year. If you haven't already,

OF CANINE GENETIC DISEASE George Padgett,
DVM, Howell Book House. 1998.
This is an invaluable book
for any serious student of any breed and is not just
for the breeder. It is much more than an explanation
of canine genetics. Eight years ago it set me on my path
in selection of the breeders to obtain dogs from, evaluating
health issues, and what breeders, parent clubs, and individuals
should be doing to control genetic disease. Recommended
reading before buying or breeding an Ibizan Hound.
LOCOMOTION AND GAIT ANALYSIS Curtis Brown.
If I had to select only one book on this
subject, and there are many, this is it. Excellent on
the sighthound breeds. Dense material. I am still learning
from it, but maybe I am slow!

YOU WANT TO RUN YOUR SIGHTHOUND By Denise
Useful handbook with essentials. Handy to
have when traveling to events.
OF THE RACING & RETIRED GREYHOUND Linda
Blythe. Published by the American Greyhound Council,
Inc. 2007. First Edition
My copy is
appropriately “dog eared”.
The chapters and illustrations/photographs on physiology,
medicine, surgery, training, nutrition, as they pertain
to the greyhound, are extremely useful. The highly
specialized greyhound possesses unique characteristics
but there is more than enough crossover to other
sighthound types to recommend this book. I do not
recommend it as a treatment bible but for diagnosis
and fundamentals it is great. It provides photos
and radiographs of most of the physical injuries
you are likely to encounter.

Ibizans featured as the banner of this website. He portrays
dogs in many media and captures their unique personalities.

fine arts, graphics, logos, jewelry, painting, porcelain
images and miniatures in most breeds. Nan does beautiful

Among the countless links
on this subject, I thought this one was comprehensive
and sensible in its choices. Additionally, it shows
what people can accomplish when they commit resources
to study health problems (seizures):
