Worldwide Ibizan Hound Database

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 is  welcome,  whether they are deceased, 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, come browse the large collection of Ibizan Hounds in this database.

CONTROL 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.


DOG LOCOMOTION AND GAIT ANALYSIS
Curtis Brown. Hoflin Press.

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!


“SIGHTHOUNDS AFIELD”

Listed below has a comprehensive bibliography for the Ibizan Hound.

...SIGHTHOUND PERFORMANCE...


SIGHTHOUNDS AFIELD
By Denise Como. Authorhouse Books. 2004.

Truly comprehensive guide to sighthound specific amateur performance events and breeds. Covers diet, conditioning, training, equipment, safety. Thorough bibliography. contact information on all organizations (AKC, ASFA, NOTRA etc.), where to purchase collars and coursing gear, you name it!
To order contact the author at wolfwindbz@frontiernet.net


SO YOU WANT TO RUN YOUR SIGHTHOUND
By Denise Comno. 1996.

Useful handbook with essentials. Handy to have when traveling to events.


CARE 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.


THE PERFORMANCE SIGHTOUND JOURNAL

Published quarterly, magazine format. $36 annually.


CGMACAZINE, CELEBRATING GREYHOUNDS

Magazine format. Useful information on health, conditioning, life with a sighthound, rescue issues, legal issues. Supports a good cause.

Erica Kasper

Erica’s Ibizans have inspired her to capture beautiful action photos of her dogs.

...HEALTH AND NUTRITION...


Honest Kitchen foods are becoming an increasingly significant component of Arbeca Ibizan Hounds’ diet. After all the problems within the pet food industry it is a welcome relief to find products of the highest quality, guaranteed 100% human-food grade, with absolutely NO by-products. Their natural and organic dehydrated foods promote nutritional awareness, environmental responsibility, and a sustainable community.

Honest Kitchen Dog Food


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):

The Irish Wolfhound Study


Handy books:

THE FIVE MINUTE VETERINARY CONSULT 3rd EDITION
L. Tilley, DVM and others, Lippincott Williams & Williams.

Expensive, look for a used version but make sure it is a current edition.


SAUNDERS COMPREHENSIVE VETERINARY DICTIONARY 2nd EDITION

Essential for me to do indepth reading and searching. Needed for a text like the above.


PILLS FOR PETS, Eldredge, D.V.M. or THE PILL BOOK GUIDE, etc.

I try to research any medication before administering it whether off the shelf or prescribed. A book of this sort should be in every pet owner’s library. Choose the most recently published.
