The Saluki is considered to be one of the oldest pure breeds of dogs in the world. This ancient breed originated in the Middle East and continues to be held in great esteem. They were honored and valued companions to Egyptian nobility. A member of the hound group, the Saluki hunts by sight, not scent.
The Saluki is sensitive, gentle, and affectionate. They are calm and amiable companions who are devoted to their family. They are very graceful in motion, agile, and extremely swift. The Saluki displays curiosity and a delightful sense of humor, combined with a strong hunting instinct.

Does your Saluki bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
The Saluki is intelligent and inventive. They display a great depth of loyalty and may become very attached to one certain person in the family. They enjoy the company of older children and may become over-protective of them. They are aloof to strangers and do not get along with other dogs or pets. The Saluki will only bark when there is something worthwhile for them to bark at. They do not do well as an outside dog and much prefer to live inside with their family. They bond so deeply to their family that they may suffer separation anxiety and depression if left alone for extended periods of time.
The Saluki's coat is easy to care for. They require occasional combing and brushing, particularly on the feathered areas. Their ears need regular cleaning and inspection. In some cases this breed may be finicky about eating and will skip meals. Though they eat smaller portions, it is important to report loss of appetite to a veterinarian if this lasts more than 48 hours. The Saluki does not tolerate any type of anesthetic agents. They are also prone to bloating, hip dysplasia, skin problems, and cataracts.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
The Saluki breed come in two different coat varieties: Smooth and Feathered. In either variety the coat is short and close. The feathered Saluki has silky flowing hair on the ears, underside of tail, legs, stern, and back of thighs. The Saluki's coat comes in a variety of colors such as white, cream, fawn, golden, red, black and tan. It may also be tri-color white, black and tan. They are minimal shedders and are odorless.
The Saluki does best with early obedience and socialization training. Their deep- rooted instinct to hunt is not something that can be or should be discouraged. They are quick to learn, but do not like repetitive training. They prefer short and varied sessions. The Saluki does not respond to harsh discipline, but require love, kindness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Saluki puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Salukis are a high-energy breed and natural athlete. They require a great deal of exercise. They are not suited for apartment living. Although they are somewhat inactive indoors, it is of vital importance the Saluki be given room to run. Yards must be highly and securely fenced and the Saluki must be kept stimulated. If they become bored they will dig. The Saluki must be securely leashed when on walks. The highest danger to this breed is the possibility of being hit by a vehicle. The hunting instinct may lead them to give chase to anything they perceive as prey. The Saluki is capable of reaching speeds of up to 50 mph., and while at full run they will not respond to their master. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are Salukis good with children?

1 Comment


The Saluki dog breed is good with older children, about 10 and up but can have trouble with young children. The Saluki has a high prey drive and a child screaming, laughing or running around could cause the dog to chase the child. Although the dog would not be acting through aggression, the dog could easily knock over a child and hurt them by accident.

Yes, as easy as any other breed.

Anonymous asked:
What is the intelligence level of the Saluki, according to Stanley Coren, author of The Intelligence of Dogs, ranking by breed?

1 Comment


I haven't read the book so can't comment on the ranking, but as a behaviorist/trainer, I can comment on trying to rank intelligence. The problem with "lists" is there are different kinds of intelligence. Some people think a dog that is easily trained is smart, and in one way it is. We call it "biddable" meaning it is eager to do your bidding, once it understands. However, there are many highly intelligent dogs that are not easily trained or biddable, but have supreme problem-solving skills. So I hope anyone trying to rank intelligence can take the differences into consideration.
Overall sight hounds like Salukis may have good problem-solving skills but may be harder to obedience train than some breeds. Many primitive breeds are this way.
