Meet the Stars of the Arabian Saluki Center

The Arabian Saluki is a regal breed of dogs that hunt primarily by sight rather than scent – used by nomadic tribes to run down game animals.  EFC established the Arabian Saluki Centre in 2001, a first of its kind in the Arabian Gulf and Middle East to revive and promote the desert tradition of hunting with saluki dogs.

Come & meet some of the stars of the Centre at the show & learn more about them.
