ORIGINSpain (Balearic Islands)
UTILIZATION The Podenco Ibicenco is mainly used for hunting
rabbits without guns, by day and at night. Thanks to his particularly
good scenting ability, which, coupled with hearing, he uses more
than sight, he scents and hunts out rabbits with ease, even in dense
cover. Nimble and bright, he catches his prey quickly, specially
when hunting together with other dogs. When one dog indicates
game, he is surrounded by all the others, which keep a certain
distance and stand in wait. They bark only when they see or hear the
game and when they have surrounded it. Both when indicating and
catching game, all dogs wag their tail fast, but are easily put off their
waiting attitude. The Podenco Ibicenco is also used for hunting hare
and large game. He is a good retriever. With certain exceptions only
bitches are used for the formation of a pack or, at most, with one
male only, as the latter do not work together during a hunt and are
quarrelsome. When a pack has caught several thousand rabbits, it
can happen with this breed, that some dogs from the same pack no
longer want to hunt until they have had a considerable rest. The
Spanish expression « enconillarse » (go to rest) refers to this
