Arabian Saluki Centre
The saluki gazelle hound is reckoned to be the first domesticated dog, closely related to the wolf, and used for hunting by Bedouin for millennia. These highly prized hounds are known for their exceptional intelligence, loyalty and stamina but the traditional desert lifestyle that called for them is changing fast. The Saluki Center was established in 2001 to help preserve the breed, and a visit lets you come face to face with these beautiful, graceful, yet powerful dogs. A very well maintained facility.
