For my talk at the PAES Conference in Murcia in October 2015, I presented estimated annual figures regarding the uncontrolled overbreeding of podencos. These figures are conservative and they are by no means to be taken as firm; it is quite likely that the numbers are even greater.
Figures for cazadores/podenqueros are more difficult to obtain than for galgos, partly because there does not appear to be one overall federation governing the different hunting associations – Federacio Andaluz de Caza seems the nearest. BUT we know there are dozens of small localised associations, some having as many as 3-4,000 members. The main podencos used by these cazas are Ibicencos and Andaluz. Some of these cazadores may have as many as 15 dogs each.
