Sloughi history

Originally from North Africa and likely descendant of the greyhound of ancient Egypt, the Sloughi would take its name from the village of Sloughia, Tunisia. Its exact origins are unclear, but we know that it was used for centuries by the Berber people and the Bedouin tribes to hunt gazelle, jackal, fox, or even hare. Indeed, thanks to his speed and endurance, he could hunt game over vast expanses of desert, which explains why he was the favorite dog of nomads. His sense of observation and his highly developed instinct also made him – and still make him – an excellent herding dog.. Finally, it was already a domestic animal for them, since it was allowed to sleep with them in the tent during the night. They even covered him with a blanket to protect him from the cold.

The first Sloughis arrived in Europe in the middle of the 19th century, after the conquest of Algeria by France. The breed was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1934. The Second World War brought its development to a halt, as many breeders had to euthanize their animals for lack of food or export them to countries spared by the conflict. . The Sloughi then became extremely rare until the end of the Algerian War (1954-1962), when French soldiers brought back to their country some specimens of the breed, which revived its expansion on European territory.

Tagore el Sian was in 1973 the first Sloughi to arrive in the United States. Originally from Tunisia, he crossed the Atlantic with his owners Kaethe and Carl Rodarte. Unfortunately, due to his age and the lack of females, he was unable to produce offspring. In fact, the breed did not really establish itself in the country until 1979, when Carole Cioce imported two Sloughis from Germany into California.

arabian saluki
sloughi hound

Most of the representatives of the breed present today in North America are descended from individuals imported from European countries (France, the Netherlands, Germany, etc.), even if some came directly from North Africa, in particular from Algeria, Libya, and Tunisia.

The breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1995, and the country’s other benchmark organization, the American Kennel Club (AKC), did the same in 2016. In contrast, the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) ) has not yet taken the plunge.
It is certainly not its popularity in the neighboring country which would be such as to encourage it to do so. Indeed, the Sloughi is one of the rarest dog breeds in the United States, even arriving in 2018 dead last in the ranking established by the AKC on the basis of the number of annual births registered with the organization.

In fact, the Sloughi is today one of the rarest breeds of Greyhounds in the world. In France, there are approximately 30 to 50 annual registrations in the French Book of Origins (LOF). The figure has been relatively stable since the mid-1980s when at the start of this decade it was more of the order of double. In comparison, around 1,400 births of Whippet Greyhounds are counted each year. In Great Britain, the breed is even downright confidential, since in some years no births are registered with the prestigious Kennel Club, the country’s benchmark dog organization.

Sloughi is also threatened with the disappearance in the Maghreb countries. Its number is constantly decreasing there, due in particular to the scarcity and protection of certain species it hunts as well as the sedentarization of the Bedouin tribes, who need his helpless and less to protect their herds.

Currently, Morocco is the country with the largest number of Sloughis. It is difficult to know the exact number, but specialists estimate that its population there would be around 600 individuals

Sloughi Appearance

The Sloughi is one of the largest dog breeds. Like that of other Greyhound breeds, its gait is slender and athletic. This is explained by his thin and tight skin, his short, fine and tight hair, his lean muscles, and his very pronounced bone structure. His general appearance is that of a noble dog, very racy and elegant, but above all built for speed.

Its chest is broad, enclosed by flat, long, and slightly curved ribs in the posterior third of the chest. The stomach is well rolled up and the back is short, almost horizontal between the withers and the hips. As for his straight, bony, and muscular legs, they have a lot to do with his formidable burst of speed.

In profile, its head is elongated and slender. Seen from above, his skull is large. It narrows down to the end formed by the truffle, which is reminiscent of the shape of a valley. Its nose is black and slightly descending, and the nostrils are wide open.

Her eyes are large and dark, and her gaze is soft and melancholy. The edges of the eyelids are pigmented. Its ears are drooping, triangular in shape and slightly rounded at the ends. As for his jaw, it is strong and regular.

The colors of her dress vary from light sand to red sand, with or without a black mask or coat. The most common is the black sand mask and the sand brindle.

Finally, the sexual dimorphism is not very pronounced, since the males normally never measure more than 10 cm more at the withers than the females, which is modest compared to the size of the animal.

Although not very demonstrative, the Sloughi is devoted and loyal, and moreover tends to be the dog of one master. When he bonds with the latter, it is for life, so that it is very difficult to make him join another family in the event of abandonment or death of his owner.

He gets along well with children, but better if they are already a certain age and therefore have learned how to interact with an animal. Indeed, given his size, he could involuntarily push aside a smaller one, or vigorously push away an older one who disrespects him. In any event, regardless of breed and degree of closeness, a toddler should never be left alone with a dog.

His sociability with humans is generally limited to members of his family. Towards foreigners, he is much more reserved and does not fail to defend his family with courage if he feels them threatened in any way.

More generally, he can easily be distressed when he has to face new situations. Socializing him as early as possible is therefore essential to prevent him from becoming a fearful and/or unnecessarily aggressive dog.

He can also cohabit with animals of other species (cats, rodents…), provided that they have grown up together and that he considers them as part of his family. On the other hand, his hunting instinct being highly developed, the subsequent introduction of another animal into the home where he lives can become problematic.

arabian saluki
sloughi hound

As for living under the same roof as a fellow-creature, such cohabitation is generally not a problem if he has grown up with it. Otherwise, it all depends on the size of the newcomer. If it is small in size, it is also likely to be considered prey. From his past as a hunter and herder, he kept the need for space and to be able to exercise. He, therefore, needs at least an hour of physical exercise every day to be able to evacuate his excess energy and be balanced. It, therefore, makes an ideal candidate for dog sports, starting of course with the events intended for Greyhounds (races on syndromes, Pursuit à Vue Sur Leurre …). It is also an ideal breed of dog for an athlete, which he is happy to accompany on his outings; the Canicross and Cani-ATV are also perfectly adapted activities over him, and certainly more than the recommended Greyhounds racing. On the other hand, having a strong hunting instinct, he risks chasing the small animals he meets at any time, especially cats. It is therefore essential that he obey the reminder, and it is better to keep him on a leash during walks, to avoid any risk of running away. Indeed, once a Sloughi has sensed a prey, he is no longer really receptive to his master’s instructions, so that it is extremely complicated to bring him back.

This is all the more true since, even with a great deal of education, he is generally far from being the most obedient dog in the world. Furthermore, he should not be relied upon to keep a low profile if he is reprimanded: given his strong character, it would rather be the opposite. It is therefore incumbent on its owner to know how to show firmness from an early age, so as not to be dominated by his imposing companion.

The great need for exercise and the size of the Arabian Greyhound means that, even though he barks very rarely (even in the presence of strangers), he is not really made to live in an apartment. However, he can live with it, as long as he is out several times a day and can satisfy his need for exercise. A house is still preferable. However, if necessary, make sure that the garden is well fenced, as the Sloughi is runaway by nature. The use of an underground electric fence could not be a viable solution with such a dog, because the discomfort of the electric impulses would be less strong than its determination to flee to embark on some unknown track. On the other hand, even if he tolerates solitude relatively well, making it live outside is not appropriate. Indeed, his short and fine hair makes him very sensitive to the cold, and he needs interactions with his humans anyway, to whom he is more attached than one might sometimes think.

Sloughi Behavior

Sloughis are kind, affectionate, and happy to be able to spend time resting with their families. They get along well with children and other dogs/cats if they have grown up together. They like to be with their owner as often as possible. They may experience separation anxiety if they were not taught to be alone for short periods of time when they were young. They are often distant with strangers but rarely aggressive: they will sit down and observe them from a distance. They have excellent eyesight and will bark when something catches their attention.

Although not very demonstrative, the Sloughi is devoted and loyal, and moreover tends to be the dog of one master. When he bonds with the latter, it is for life, so that it is very difficult to make him join another family in the event of abandonment or death of his owner.

Sloughi Training

The Sloughi is a shy dog and easily frightened by what he does not know. Also, his socialization must be done from an early age, when he is most malleable, so that he is confronted with a maximum of people and situations and learns to adopt the right behaviors in all circumstances, to become an adult. perfectly balanced.

It must also lead him to associate with other animals, and in particular cats, rodents, and other small animals, in order to try to avoid that he considers them as prey when he crosses them later.

Endowed with great intelligence and a keen sense of observation, he learns quickly… if he wants to. Indeed, obedience is not its strong point: it is not a dog that makes a point of honor to satisfy or even anticipate the requests of its master. You must, therefore, be firm in your education, but also be patient, in order to respect your character. Trying to force its way could only be detrimental for the future, as it is a proud and sensitive animal, which does not appreciate reprimands. His temperament makes him a prime client for the dog training method based on positive reinforcement, and you usually don’t have to skimp on treats to achieve your goals.

Finally, teaching your dog to recall is of particular importance in order to be able to calmly enjoy walks outside, as the Sloughi maintains a strong predatory instinct and can therefore at any time pursue an animal that he considers its prey. This is all the more true as, given its top speed, it is then very difficult to catch up.

However, he tends to be easily injured when running and is more prone to certain conditions.

This is particularly the case with progressive retinal atrophy, a hereditary disease that causes degeneration of the retina which can lead to the total loss of vision. There is a blood test that can determine whether or not an individual is a carrier of the gene responsible for this disease. Therefore, before adopting a representative of this breed, it is recommended to have the test carried out, in order to eliminate any risk at this level. Of course, knowing that this is an inherited disease, a proper breeder does not breed an individual carrying the gene.
