  • "a commitment to excellence"

    Located in the metropolitan area of Tampa, Florida, I have been involved with Ibizan Hounds since 2002. Abbaio is home to winners and placers at Westminster, AKC National Championship, Morris & Essex, IHCUS National Specialty weekend, Beezerfest, the World Dog Show and the National Lure Coursing Championship. Our dogs have won All-Breed and National Specialty Best in Shows, won and placed in groups and accumulated championships, grand championships, lure coursing, rally, agility, dock diving and trick dog titles. Outside of the United States, Abbaio Ibizans have won championships in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Gibraltar, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain and Sweden.
    Above all else, Abbaio Ibizans bring joy to their families as loving companions. Thanks to the dogs, the Abbaio Family has grown into a group of wonderful people who support each other with advice as well as share stories and photos regularly. Dogs are only in the show ring, on the coursing field or in other competitions for very small fraction of time, the rest of their lives are spent as beloved companions. All of my puppies are "pet" puppies, regardless of show or performance potential they must be treated as a member of the family, kept as inside dogs and provided with the best care possible. Ibizan Hounds are very adaptable and can be as at home on a large farm as they are in an apartment, it is the responsibility of the owner to make sure their needs are met no matter their living situation.
    Abbaio is not an online puppy store. Ibizan Hounds are a rare breed and not common in all areas. We welcome inquiries from any and all who are interested in sharing their life with an Ibizan, or just learning more about them. A personal meeting with me and the dogs is essential in making your final decision.

    2022 AKC Lure Coursing Breeder of the Year
    I am incredibly honored to have been chosen as the 2022 Breeder of the Year for Lure Coursing by the American Kennel Club. From the beginning, the dual purpose and function of the Ibizan Hound has been of utmost importance, blending the beauty and the hunting ability of these incredible dogs to produce an all-around hound that is capable of performing at the highest levels in the ring and on the field. Since moving to Florida, I have been able to pursue more field trials with the dogs, to their delight, and they have been consistently recognized for their talents. Abbaio has produced 12 individual Best in Field winners and 33 AKC Field Champions.

    "Stella"

    March 19, 2011 - September 5, 2022
    Stella was a remarkable Ibizan Hound and so important to Abbaio in so many ways. She was the first-born female from our first litter and went on to become my first champion from the bred by exhibitor class, my first dual champion, winner of many awards in dog shows, lure coursing and agility...she was a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother...but above all else, she was my girl. My beloved "pocket beezer" who never let her small size keep her from reaching whatever she sought after. She traveled the country with me, she celebrated with me when I was happy and consoled me when I was sad. She was the greatest friend to me whenever I needed her. She was a perfect representative of everything I hope for with each new generation born here, not just in competition but in all things "normal", in all of the moments we are so lucky to share with our dogs who love us just a little more than we can ever possibly love them. Losing her has been the most painful and excruciating experience for me, but I am consoled in knowing that she lives on through her decendents and that she will never truly be gone. I am so fortunate to have this wonderful family of dogs that she helped to create, and I am so thankful to each of them for making my world a better place.
