Loco Motion Ibizan Hounds

Loco Motion Ibizan Hounds began in 2008.  We are located in Southeastern Idaho. 
It all started with the acquisition of "Eris" Ch. Bodean's Six Pack Tecate SC ROM. 
She was followed in 2009 by "Anje" GCH. L-Wynd's Too Hip Gotta Go To Disney SC. 
I am very proud of my wonderful girls.
Loco Motion's first litter was whelped April of 2011.
Our breeding "Eris" to Mex/Pan-Am/Am Ch. Ahram's Ain't No Other Man, aka Chris has produced some lovely show puppies,who had very successful careers both in the conformation ring and the field. This litter of 8 produced 6 conformation champions (4 of which are Grand Champions) all of which were breeder or owner handled to their titles.  Two dogs in this litter are Dual Champions, one, DC Loco Motion's Dancin' Barefoot, SC aka Kalos has been accepted into the Ibizan Hound Club Of America's Hall Of Fame for his 5 BEST IN FIELDS!!  UPDATE:  Kalos is now MBIF BISS DC Loco Motion's Dancin' Barefoot SC LCX!!!  So proud of this guy!  Not to be outdone by her brother, Abba - BISS GCHS Loco Motion's Dancing Queen attained her Silver Championship!  Eris received a new title to her name:  
Ch. Bodean's Six Pack Tecate, ROM, JC, CGC.  We are so proud of our first litter of Loco Motion puppies!
We had another lovely litter of 5 puppies in June of 2014 between Eris and Ch. Ahram's Ring Of Fire (Cash).  Two of them hit the conformation rings and both of them received their Championships at under one year of age.  Ch. Loco Motion's Dance Into The Fire aka Ruby is now keeping her owner's couch warm while she matures and looks forward to field coursing!  
Finn, is now Ch Loco Motion's Spirit Afire and has also retired to his owner's couch.
 We had 2 beautiful litters in 2015 with Abba, bred to Ch. Ahram's Ring Of Fire, and Kiba who was bred to Swedish import GCH. Barrongiz Charlie Brown.  We had beautiful, sound puppies who are currently out in the conformation ring. Two of Kiba's puppies are now titled:  MBIF BISS Ch. Loco Motion's Dare To Prevail With Heart SC LCX aka Pre and GCH Loco Motion's Dare To Dance aka Pika.
We have a very exciting litter planned for 2019 between one of Charlie and Kiba's puppies, GCH Loco Motion's Dare To Dance aka Pikachu.  She will be bred to Mex/Pan-Am/Am CH Ahram's Ain't No Other Man, her grandfather.  Pika is currently out in the conformation ring as a special, already group placing with limited showing.  This is a tight line breeding that should produce some lovely, sound and healthy puppies suitable for the conformation ring, performance ring and living room couch.  Check out the pedigrees and pictures on our Nursery Page.

I am in love with this breed!  They are such sweet and funny dogs.  Perfect for nearly anyone who has a fenced in yard and wants a companion that will keep them laughing!  Pictured above from left to right are DC MBIF Loco Motion's Dance Y'Self Dizzy SC LCX aka Corken owned and loved by Debra McKibben, GCh.

Ibizan Hound in a nutshell 
The Ibizan Hound is an elegant and agile breed, with an athletic and attractive outline and a ground-covering springy trot. Though graceful in appearance, it has good bone girth and is a rugged/hardy breed. Its large upright ears - a hallmark of the breed - are broad at the base and frame a long and elegant headpiece. The neck is long and lean. It has a unique front assembly with well laid-back shoulders and relatively straight upper arm.
It comes in both smooth and wire-coated varieties. It is either red, white, or a combination of red and white. Its nose is flesh colored, as are its ears, eye rims, and pads of feet. Its eyes are a striking amber color and have an alert and intelligent expression. The Ibizan may range in height from 24 to 29 inches (61 to 74 cm) and weigh from 45 to 65 pounds (20 to 29 kg), males being larger than females.
