Saluki The Saluki breed is one of the most ancient breeds known to man. It is a sighthound, a type of hound that tracks and pursues its game by sight rather than scent. The Saluki's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, hunting dog The Saluki dog breed has the traits of any hunting hound. Salukis are quick learners but they do not like repetitive training. To this end, it is best that sessions are quick and varied to guarantee their interest in training. Though they require training, they behave quietly when indoors. There are times when they want to be left alone so they could rest and that should be respected. They will not bark but "sing" to let it be known that they have been left alone too long or when there is something wrong. When they feel sociable they get along well with children. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
