Saluki Dog Grooming Instruction - Brushing Hair and Coat
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Saluki dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • There are two types of coats which the Salukis can have, both are smooth but may or may not have feathering on the legs. Both types require regular, weekly grooming and occasional bathing
  • Use a soft bristle brush with short closely spaced bristles
  • Begin at the head of the dog or puppy, and follow the hair growth direction
  • Gently brush through the coat, being careful around delicate areas
  • Take your time working through the coat as it will help to make it look healthy and shiny
  • This breed is very clean and they keep their coat odor-free

Saluki Dog Grooming Instruction - Bathing your Dog
Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Saluki Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Place a mat and towel next to bath
  • Check the water temperature of the bath - ensure that a minimal amount of water is used
  • Gradually place the dog in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry. Then brush the hair

Saluki Dog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed. It is important to know exactly what you are doing, as cutting too deep into your Saluki dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Saluki is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
