History: The English Setter has been a treasured English bird retriever
fot the last four hundred years. A hunter by nature, it has a graceful
appearence, good agility, thoughtful-looking eyes, and a noble gait. This
breed is thought to have come from the Spanish Pointer, Water Spaniel,
and Spanish Spaniel. Today's English Setter hails from the dog created
by Lord Edward Laverack, who devoted himself to the creation of a gentle
Body: The Eniglish Setter has a lean head with a clearly defined stop,
an angular muzzle, and low-set drop ears covered with silky hair.
A medium-length coat lies flat on the body. The legs, abdomen, and tail
have a good amount of moderate-length hair. Coloring includes black, white
and brown (tan), black and white, blue belton, liver and white, and white.
Spots spread all over the body are preferred to big patches. The eyes are
Character: In a field, this dog lowers itself and waits until the hunter
has fired, and starts to search for the quarry on the master's command.
Gentle, good mannered, merrier than any other sporting breed, the English
Setter is often called an aristocrat among dogs, for it keeps its distance
from other dogs and cautiously approaches them with a prudent attitude.
Quiet, loyal to and affectionate with its master, friendly with other people
and animals, it makes a loving house dog.
Care: Daily brushing is necessary for a rich looking and healthy coat.
Occasional professional grooming is desirable. Thorough coat care is recommended
after a walk as the coat easily catches the seeds and leaves of plants.
Originally an active hunter, this breed grows bad-tempered if retained
in a kennel or kept indoors unnecessarily long.
Exercise: Consistent training and strenuous exercise is necessary for a
good natured dog.
Puppies: The six to eight puppies in each litter are delivered without
assistance and are easy to raise. Newborns are white for the first week;
after this time, their coat colors will begin to change.
