general characteristics

Calm, intelligent, modest Saluki (also known as the Persian greyhound) are simply born for home life. They love active walks and peaceful home relaxation equally.
They are good guards – they will always warn you of danger, but they will never attack an outsider. You can rely on this dog.
However, to live happily together, you need to take into account the inherent in most greyhounds some self-centeredness. Saluki often act on their own, and training them can be difficult, requiring patience and a lot of time.


Every owner dreams of seeing his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is proper, nutritious and balanced nutrition. Even if you buy the freshest and highest quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you will not be able to determine the exact nutritional value of food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special application that will help you evaluate how the diet you feed your pet meets his needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Taking care of your pet’s health, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet diets to take full advantage of the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
