English Setter Dog Breed Gifts

It appears that the first of the Setter variations were developed in 16th century France, the result of crossing the Spanish and French pointers, for the purpose of finding and indicating the location of game birds. When exported to England in the 19th century it attracted the attention of Sir Edward Laverack, who went on to refine the breed for its game bird hunting qualities, something that was furthered later in the century by R. P. Llewellin. Over the years the deviation from sporting to show dog has produced a discrepancy in appearance, with field dogs being smaller and more spotted. An English Setter stands 23-27 inches at the withers, and can weigh 45-80 lbs. (continued below)

(continued) They come in orange, blue, lemon and liver, in a pattern known as “belton” which is heavy spotting without patching. There is also a tri-color, which is a blue belton with specific tan markings on the head and legs. An exceptionally placid, even-tempered dog, they are a wonderful family pet. The large size may be intimidating for young children, but they are sweetly affectionate, and need companionship to remain happy. Quiet indoors, they are active and enthusiastic outside, with a propensity for digging and jumping that means you must look to the yard and whether it is secure when you are not present. Sometimes difficult to housebreak, and an insistent barker, both behaviors can be remedied with early and consistent training. © DogDecor.com
