English Setter Breed Profile

A gundog that can adapt to 'pet' life providing plenty of opportunity to run freely is given. They love people and are ideally suited to country life opposed to town.

English Setter Character

More suited to country than town, the Setter loves free gallop and will take plenty of exercise to occupy its mind. Lovely family dogs, loves children and are relatively easy to obedience train. Likes to be with people and not left on their own for too long. Requires firm and consistent training, otherwise can be quite a handful.

English Setter Size

Dogs should be 65-68cm, bitches 61-65cm.

English Setter Health

Generally healthy, but Hip Dysplasia is known, also gastric torsion can occur, so take care feeding and exercising. Skin allergies can also be problematic.

English Setter Special Care

This is a racy gundog and unless given attention and exercise, can be incredibly boisterous in the home
