How Much is a Saluki? Puppy & Adult Dog (with Calculator)


The prospect of raising a Saluki is an exciting one! As you bring a new dog into your home, however, there are a few things you should know about, particularly when it comes to planning your finances. The dog should never be a financial burden on you or your family, so we have developed a cost calculator to help you get a personalized estimate as to how much it should cost to raise a Saluki! This accounts for things like supplies, food, medical expenses, training costs, grooming costs, and other essentials as well as the cost of the puppy or dog itself.

A Saluki puppy is likely to cost between $1,700 and $2,700 with the average price being $2,400. First-year expenses are around $5,110 and will be about $1,455/year (or $121/month) after that. Through the dog’s lifetime, the average cost of owning a Saluki is $24,025.

This covers all the essentials, including supplies, training costs, medical expenses, food and treats, grooming expenses, licenses, and a microchip. Additionally, optional costs could include medical expenses such as a spay/neuter procedure and additional services, such as dog walking and dog boarding, as well as pet insurance.

With all these included (assuming you hire a dog walker five times a week for 50 weeks and use a boarding service for one week every year), we estimate the total cost of owning a Saluki to fall between $72,320 and $142,270, with an average cost of $105,605 for 14 years.

In this article, prices in the higher range apply for people willing to buy high-end products and services and/or living in an expensive area, while the lower range will probably be more relevant if using cheaper products and services and/or living in a less expensive area.

Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of the expenses, see what applies to you and get experts’ opinions on Salukis. At the bottom of the article, we have also added a cost calculator that will allow you to assess your personal situation and get a much more accurate estimate as to how much it should cost you to buy and raise your puppy!

The price of Saluki puppies

Salukis are rare in the US bu if you are willing to put the time and effort it is possible to find a puppy. We have searched on different websites including the American Kennel Club, NextDayPets, breeders websites, and PuppyFind and were able to find 6 ads for puppies under 6 months.

Most Saluki puppies can be found between $1,700 and $2,700 and they cost $2,400 on average. The most expensive puppy found during our research was priced at $3,000.

Puppy CostRangeAverage Cost
Saluki$1,700 – $2,700$2,400

Adoption offers a more affordable alternative, with rehoming/adoption fees typically being between $50 and $500, depending on the shelter. You would also be rescuing an abandoned animal, supporting a charity, and breaking the cycle of pet overpopulation.

Whether you decide to buy or adopt a Saluki, make sure to find a reputable breeder or shelter as you want your future dog to have been properly cared for and reduce the chances to get a sick or behaviorally troubled animal.

Factors affecting the price of puppies and why prices vary for the same breed.

Purebred or mixed. Usually, mixed-breeds are sold at a lower price than purebred dogs.

Bloodline and breeder’s reputation. If the parents are purebred show quality dogs from a reputable breeder, the price will be substantially higher. These breeders also tend to invest more money than others to take care of their breeding dogs and puppies.

Registration papers/pedigree. Some breeders are members of kennel clubs, the most famous being the American Kennel Club (AKC). They can also have their breeding dogs and puppies registered which would also add to their fees.

Health screenings and medical expenses. Serious breeders will have their breeding dogs and/or puppies evaluated/tested for different medical conditions. Moreover, some will take their puppies to the vet for an exam, deworming, vaccines, and/or microchip implantation prior to selling them. This drives the price higher but also reduces the risk to get an unhealthy dog.

Training and socialization. Some breeders sell their dogs after they are trained and socialized. It will increase the puppy’s price but generate savings as you most probably won’t have to invest in more training and also gives a better chance to get a well-behaved dog.

Breed popularity in the buyer’s location. Local supply and demand will have an impact on puppy prices. For example, small dogs tend to be more popular in metropolitan areas where people live in smaller spaces. Some breeds are more in demand in colder climates, others where hunting is popular, etc. It is worth looking for prices in different locations, but it is risky to buy a dog without having seen it before or at least have met with the breeder and visited the kennel.

Age. As most people want to get their puppy as young as possible, prices tend to be lower when the dog gets older. For example, on average a 6-month-old pup is likely to be less expensive than an 8-week-old one.

Coat color and markings. Coat color trends can change quickly. For any breed, some colors are more popular than others, sometimes temporarily. When the interest for a specific coat color grows, puppies get more expensive as an increase in demand leads to a higher market price. Also, for purebred dogs, only specific colors and color combinations are accepted by kennel clubs. Finally, puppies with rare colors can be very expensive as well.

Should you train your Saluki?

Our expert animal behaviorist and dog trainer recommends that a Saluki gets ample professional training. Alexa Diaz, Ph.D., suggests private lessons for positive leadership, house manners, crate training, and potty training.

You should also consider group lessons for basic obedience and to address excessive barking and jumping if necessary. Training should run you anywhere between $750 and $1,000 for five to seven private lessons plus $150 to $200 for five 1-hour group lessons.

Training CostRangeAverage Cost
Saluki$900 – $1,200$1,050

Dog training books are affordable and will also help you come to terms with the basics of raising and training a Saluki dog.

Medical expenses for a Saluki

According to our consulting licensed veterinarian, Leslie Brooks, DVM, first year medical expenses for a Saluki puppy should be around $595. Even if the number of visits to the clinic are lower for adult dogs, the cost of medication as the Saluki gets bigger drives the annual price up close to $605. Spay/neuter and gastropexy procedures will add between $250 and $850 to the medical bills (more details below).

Medical CostRangeAverage Cost
First Year Vet Cost$395 – $795$595
Spay/Neuter (optional)$50 – $450$250
Gastropexy (optional)$200 – $400$300
Adult Year Vet Cost$380 – $825$605

Vet cost for the first year

When it comes to prices, Dr Brooks estimates that a dog owner will pay $65-$170 for each of the three recommended visits for a Saluki puppy, with the first one being scheduled at about 8 weeks of age. This will cover the exams, essential vaccines including rabies, the first doses of heartworm and flea prevention as well as a fecal examination.

Most of her clients also follow her advice to purchase heartworm and flea prevention medication for the rest of the year. They cost $60-$105 and $70-$105.

Some dogs may also need additional vaccines depending on activities and lifestyle:

  • Leptospirosis if the dog is exposed to wildlife, goes camping often, hikes, plays in puddles, lakes, or ponds ($15-$25 and sometimes already included in the visit).
  • Influenza if the dog goes to doggie daycare or is kenneled/boarded often and if the daycare or kennels require it due to intermittent influenza outbreaks ($70-$90 for two doses).
  • Lyme, if exposed to ticks often, such as if the dog goes camping or hiking, or lives in a wooded area or on a farm ($60-$80 for two doses).

Some owners will also decide to spay/neuter their dog. Vet clinics usually charge $150-$450 to perform this procedure on a Saluki. It is even possible to find low-cost sterilization clinics that will do it for as low as $50 to $100 depending on your location. Generally, the procedure is more expensive for female dogs (spays).

For larger, deep-chested dogs like Salukis, Leslie Brooks, DVM, also advises performing a gastropexy at the time of their spay or neuter to help prevent the possibility of GDV (Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus) later in life. GDV is a life-threatening condition that must be corrected with surgery. A gastropexy procedure typically adds between $200 and $400 to the spay/neuter bill.

Saluki veterinary expenses for the following years

Leslie Brooks expects dog owners to bring their adult Saluki to the clinic for an annual checkup. Yearly visits are usually priced between $125-$265 which includes the exam, vaccines, and a heartworm test (as well as blood work for middle aged and senior dogs to detect any potential issue).

Additionally, Dr Brooks suggests continuing flea and heartworm prevention medication, which usually fall in the $80-$150 and $175-$250 ranges respectively for a dog this size.

Annual booster shots for the optional lifestyle vaccines presented above will add $15-$45 each to the medical bill. Finally, some dogs may require a fecal examination costing an extra $40-$50. This is mainly if the pet is exposed to wildlife and/or other dogs or shows inconsistent stool quality.

Health problems to be aware of

Not all Salukis will have the following health problems listed by Dr Brooks, but it is important to be aware of them when considering this breed.

Health ProblemLikelihoodTreatment Cost Estimate
CardiomyopathyHigh$600 – $2,000
CancerHigh$500 – $10,000
Dental DiseaseMedium$400 – $800
GlaucomaMedium$300 – $1,500
CataractsMedium$1,500 – $3,000

Cardiomyopathy: the cost estimate includes diagnostics (x-rays, ECG, echocardiogram) and heart medications.

Cancer: the cost depends on the type of cancer and whether an owner pursues aggressive therapy and all the recommended treatments versus electing to keep the pet comfortable with medications.

Dental disease: this is the cost estimate for the dental procedures to clean the teeth and remove any infected teeth if needed. It typically needs to be done multiple times throughout the dog’s life.

For glaucoma, the price varies between $300 and $1,500 depending on if medications alone are sufficient for treatment or if the affected eye needs to be removed.

Cataracts: this is a cost estimate for diagnostics and surgery per eye affected.

Dog health insurance

One might consider enrolling their dog in a health insurance plan as a safety net against unexpected costs, making budgeting much easier. As per the North American Pet Health Insurance Association’s latest State of the Industry report, the average annual price for accident and illness coverage plans round out at about $565.

For accident only plans, the average price is $190. Contact pet insurance companies to know more and get a quote.

What is the cost to feed a Saluki?

Salukis are pretty big dogs, with large ones growing over the average of 55 lb. (usually 40 to 65 lb.). As a result, puppies tend to consume 170 lb. of dry food on average during their first year. This puts food expenses in the $130-$265 range. Adults typically eat more, close to 260 lb. a year, and therefore will require $140-$405 worth of food every year.

This is based on the recommendations and costs of four popular brands: Purina, Purina One, Blue Buffalo and Pedigree.

Yearly Food CostRangeAverage Cost
Puppy$130 – $265$195
Adult Dog$140 – $405$245

You may also want to have some additional treats on hand to help with obedience training or simply please your dog. This can add $115-$335 to your food-related expenses based on prices seen on Amazon, PetSmart, and Walmart.

Treats CostRangeAverage Cost
Yearly Treats$115 – $335$240

This cost estimation for treats is based on the premise that the dog gets one big treat every day. If you give your dog a treat every other day, you can divide these amounts by two. If it is once a week, divide them by seven, and so on. Enter the relevant information in the calculator at the end of the article to get your personalized cost estimate.

Keep in mind that prices are largely related to the quality of food and treats you buy – if you opt for premium grade products, your expenses are bound to be higher by quite a considerable margin.

Four dog food brands compared

A Saluki puppy can be expected to eat around 170 lb. of dry food during its first year.

Puppy Food BrandsQuantity per BagNumber of Bags / YearUnit PriceTotal Price
Purina – Puppy Chow36 lb.5$27.78 (Walmart)$138.90
Purina One – Smart Blend Puppy16.5 lb.11$21.98 (Walmart)$241.78
Pedigree – Puppy36 lb.5$25.83 (Walmart)$129.15
Blue Buffalo – Puppy30 lb.6$44.08 (Amazon)$264.48

An adult will need close to 260 lb. of food depending on its actual weight, age, and level of activity.

Adult Food BrandsQuantity per BagNumber of Bags / YearUnit PriceTotal Price
Purina – Dog Chow50 lb.6$22.98 (Walmart)$137.88
Purina One – Smart Blend40 lb.7$40.36 (Walmart)$282.52
Pedigree – Adult50 lb.6$25.83 (Walmart)$154.98
Blue Buffalo – Adult30 lb.9$44.98 (Amazon)$404.82

Additionally, dog food is perishable, but can be stored for extended periods of time. This means that bulk purchases are a viable option and will give you the best bang for buck on the market. So, consider bulk-purchasing food for your Saluki after consulting with your vet to decide which type of dog food would best suit your dog.

Example for a more expensive premium brand

Royal Canin – Size Health NutritionQuantity per BagNumber of Bags / YearUnit PriceTotal Price
Medium Puppy30 lb.6$65.99 (PetSmart)$395.94
Medium Adult30 lb.9$64.99 (PetSmart)$584.91

This illustrates the price difference between budget-friendly and premium dog food.

Grooming budget for a Saluki

Typically,Salukis do not require a ton of upkeep and could be groomed at home by their owner according to our dog groomer, Corryne Smith.

Otherwise, she suggests taking the dog to a professional up to 6 times a year, with prices ranging from $45 to $55 for each visit. Taking the dog to a professional groomer is the owner’s decision but will benefit the dog’s health and well-being even for low-maintenance breeds.

Usually a professional dog grooming session includes a bath and shampoo, nail trimming, teeth brushing, eye and ear cleaning as well as hair removal (if needed), brushing and styling.

Yearly Grooming CostRangeAverage Cost
Saluki$0 – $330$165

DIY grooming kits can be found for about $75 on Amazon or at Walmart and PetSmart (prices found range from $25 to $290).

Additional costs that comes with a Saluki

Additional CostsRangeAverage Cost
License$10 – $20$15
Microchip$25 – $50$40
Dog Walking (per walk) $15 – $25 $20
Dog Boarding (per day)$25 – $85$40

License

Licenses usually fall in the $10-$20 range in the USA, depending on your location. If your dog is not spayed or neutered, the cost is likely to be a little bit higher. We strongly recommend licensing your Saluki, as it can be illegal, depending on local regulations, to own an unlicensed dog. Moreover, it makes identification and locating in the case of emergencies much easier.

Microchip

Microchips create a unique identification to your dog, allowing them to be on medical and emergency databases. Microchips are required in many U.S states and will range from $25-$50.

Dog walking

If you cannot walk your dog during the day, Tamaria Reddick, a well-reputed dog walker and dog sitter with over 10 years of experience, highly recommends hiring a professional for a daily 30-minute walk. It is imperative that an energetic dog such as the Saluki gets some sort of daily exercise as well as outdoor time. On average, these are affordable. A 30-minute walk usually costs between $15 and $25 ($20 to $50 for 30 minutes) depending on your location.

But you must be aware that those costs add up very quickly if you need a dog walker five days a week all year long. To find a dog walker in your area and validate the price, you can use apps like Rover or Wag. If the dog is not properly socialized, it might need private walks which are more expensive.

Traveling

In the case of extended travel plans, you can leave your Saluki in the care of a dog boarding service. Budget $25 to $85 a day, depending on location, services, and time of year. During particularly busy stretches of the year, such as the holidays, you will need to book dog boarding services in advance, as you are likely to get much better rates when doing so.

If you are on a tight budget, checking with any friends or family to see if they would be willing to host your dog is a good idea. Make sure to let them know that your Saluki will need daily exercise.

Finally, you might be able to take your dog with you, as many airlines and train companies offer special provisions to help move your pets. You will probably have to submit a formal request ahead of time. Moreover, the cost varies drastically, as it depends on several variables such as location, destination, mode of transport, etc.

Yearly and monthly cost of a Saluki

The cost of the first year with a puppy

The total first year expenses that come with raising a Saluki averages out at $5,110, with the spectrum ranging from $3,460 to $6,485. Keep in mind that many of the essential expenses that come with raising a puppy fall within the first weeks.

First Year CostsRangeAverage Cost
Puppy$1,700 – $2,700$2,400
Supplies$185 – $790$410
Training$900 – $1,200$1,050
Medical$395 – $795$595
Food & Treats$245 – $600$435
Grooming$0 – $330$165
License$10 – $20$15
Microchip$25 – $50$40
First Year Total$3,460 – $6,485$5,110

The dog owner might also want to take into consideration the following costs.

Optional First Year CostsRangeAverage Cost
Spay/Neuter$50 – $450$250
Gastropexy$200 – $400$300
Insurance$350 – $780$565
Dog Walking (30 minutes per day)$15 – $25$20
Dog Boarding (per day)$25 – $85$40

With a spay or neuter procedure, pet insurance and other miscellaneous services, such as dog walking (five times a week for 42 weeks) and boarding services (assuming the dog is boarded for a week), these amounts can add up easily, putting your expenses in the $7,385-$13.960 range through the course of the puppy’s first year only.

Potential First Year CostRangeAverage Cost
With Spay/Neuter and Insurance$4,060 – $8,115$6,225
With Spay/Neuter, Insurance, Dog Walking and Dog Boarding$7,385 – $13,960$10,705

Yearly and monthly cost with a Saluki for the following years

After the first year, the annual cost of owning a Saluki does go down and will run you anywhere between $720 and $2,245, with an average cost of $1,455. This puts your monthly expenses in the $60-$187 range.

Adult Year CostsRangeAverage Cost
Supplies$75 – $330$185
Medical$380 – $825$605
Food & Treats$255 – $740$485
Grooming$0 – $330$165
License$10 – $20$15
Adult Year Total$720 – $2,245$1,455
Estimated Monthly Cost$60 – $187$121

Again, you might also want to consider additional services that could drastically change your budget like buying insurance and/or hiring a dog walker 5 times a week for 30-minute walks and leaving your dog in a boarding facility for a week while going on vacation.

Potential Adult Year CostRangeAverage Cost
With Insurance$1,070 – $3,025$2,020
With Insurance, Dog Walking and Dog Boarding$4,995 – $9,870$7,300

Total cost of ownership for the Saluki

On average, Salukis live for 14 years (usually 10 to 17 years). Using the metrics and figures above, we estimate that the total cost of owning a Saluki falls within the $12,820-$35,670 range, with a $24,025 average.

Total Cost of Ownership (14 years)RangeAverage Cost
Saluki$12,820 – $35,670$24,025

Adding spay/neuter as well as pet insurance, the average cost of ownership will be around $32,485. Finally, with 30-minute professional walks five times a week all year long (except for two weeks) and a week in a dog boarding facility every year on top of that, the total cost of ownership can be as high as $72,320 to $142,270 averaging $105,605 for the 14 years spent raising a Saluki.

Potential Total Cost of Ownership (14 years)RangeAverage Cost
With Spay/Neuter and Insurance$17,970 – $47,440$32,485
With Spay/Neuter, Insurance, Dog Walking and Dog Boarding$72,320 – $142,270$105,605

6 – How often should a Saluki be professionally groomed and how much will it cost?
