What's a Silken Windhound?

Silkens are a magnificent little sighthound – a medium-sized, elegant hound at home both in the show ring and in the field, about 18-24 inches at the shoulder, with an easy-care, long, silken coat in all sighthound colors and color combinations, and a steady, affectionate and confident personality.

We show in conformation at ISWS (International Silken Windhound Society) specialty shows, and are welcome to show in UKC, ICKC, and IABCA shows. We attend ASFA (American Sighthound Field Association) lure coursing events, straight racing with LGRA (Large Gazehound Racing Association), oval racing with NOTRA (National Oval Track Racing Association), and open field coursing with NOFCA (National Open Field Coursing Association). These dogs are very versatile and there is little they won’t enjoy doing with you.
