Saluki Grooming and Breed Care

Saluki Temperament

An extremely fast and agile dog, the Saluki is a very dignified and often aloof creature. He is very independent and can be manipulative, which means that he needs an assertive and confident owner with experience of dog ownership and handling. The Saluki should never be left alone in an unsecured area, as he can jump and run with amazing agility, and will soon be up, off, and away. These dogs do need to be socialized early on in order to promote confidence and an outgoing personality. They are energetic when outdoors, as their running and jumping abilities prove, but when indoors they are quiet, calm, and peaceful. This is a dog that likes his creature comforts, but also needs plenty of exercise to release all of that energy. The Saluki is not a Velcro pet that will follow you around everywhere, and tends to be reserved. However, he is still loyal and displays affection in his own quiet way to his family.


The Saluki will get along well with children that are older and gentle, as he does not take to being handled roughly or pounced upon, as smaller children may be tempted to do. They are generally accepting of other dogs, but should not be trusted around smaller animals due to their high prey drive. He tends to keep himself to himself, and is usually aloof and reserved around strangers. Cautious and protective, they can make effective watchdogs. This breed can be a challenge to train, but owners should always focus on correcting him verbally due to his sensitive nature.

Saluki Appearance

The Saluki is a very elegant, regal looking dog with a svelte build and a certain dignity about the way he carries himself. He is medium ot large in size. The coat of the Saluki may be smooth of feathered, and has a silky, soft texture. Coloring includes golden, grizzle and tan, black and tan, cream, red, tri-color, and fawn, amongst others. His silky ears hang down to frame his face beautifully, and his tail is a luxurious plume. The height of the Saluki is around 23-29 inches, and the weight around 40-70 pounds.

Saluki Grooming

The Saluki is a low maintenance dog when it comes to grooming, and his coat can be kept in good condition simply with occasional brushing. He is a medium shedder, and may not be ideal for those with severe allergies.

Saluki Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Saluki is around 12-14 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes thyroid problems, heart conditions, tumors, and sensitivity to drug and chemicals. The parents of the Saluki should have clearance in relation to heart conditions.

Saluki History

The Saluki was bred by the Arabs, but also has Ancient Egyptian origins, often receiving the dubious honor of being mummified when his master died. A number of Salukis have been found in Egyptian tombs having been buried with their owner. This breed was also considered sacred by the Mohammedans, and was dubbed the Sacred Gift of Allah. Now a hunting dog and companion, the speed and agility of the Saluki made him an effective hunter of gazelles and other game, where he worked alongside falcons that would distract the prey.
