These dogs get on well with children but hold back watchfully with strangers. Once they decide the stranger means no harm, they thaw very quickly.

The dog of this breed can be rather dominant towards other males. Provided their social training introduced them to your cat when they are young, there will be no problems.    



The Ibizan Hound has a short-haired, long-haired, and rough-haired varieties. The most usual is the short-haired; the long-haired is very rare. The rough-haired has a longer coat of rough hair that is softer textured than the other two varieties. Predominant colours are various shades of red, white, or a combination of them.


The short-haired version can be groomed occasionally with a rubber brush. The rough-haired ones do not need hand-plucking and can also be groomed by an occasional brushing.


This breed likes to learn and does so quickly. Provided they have been properly trained, they can participate in various types of dog sports. They are very sensitive to the voice of their handler and a friendly request achieves more than a gruff command.
