Welcome to the website of the Saluki or Gazelle Hound Club

Founded in 1923, the Club’s objectives are:


  • To ensure the continued purity of the Saluki breed
  • To encourage the exhibition of the breed by obtaining classes for it at suitable shows and by giving special prizes
  • To retain the inherent working skills of the breed by encouraging suitable activities
  • To ensure the well-being of both individual Salukis and the breed as a whole (cross-breeding between Salukis and other sight hounds being discouraged)
