to Silken Windhounds. If you're visiting it's no doubt because you've heard a little about this amazing breed.
You can learn about Silkens by going to the International Silken Windhound Society website at www.silkenwindhounds.org. You'll find the history of the breed, the breed standard, links to breeders, and the information you'll need to get more involved in the Silken community.
Silkens are very special dogs. They will be your loving, entertaining companion, or you can enjoy the fun of lure coursing, racing, and showing them as well. 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.
