The English Setter is one of the oldest breeds of gun dogs. Sir Edward Laverack developed the English Setter from early French hunting dogs in the early 1800's. It is a beautiful, graceful, elegant, slim setter with a unique speckled coat. It thieves on human companionship or with other dogs. It has unconditional devotion to its whole family.

This breed is very gentle, placid, affectionate and friendly. Newborn puppies are born white and after the first week begin to change in color.


Black and white, orange and white, lemon and white, liver and white or tricolor, those without heavy patches of color but flecked all over are preferred.


The coat is short, straight and dense. Regular brushing and combing of the soft, flat, medium-length coat is all that is required to keep it in excellent condition. It is important to check for burrs and tangles, and to give extra care when the dog is shedding. Bathe or dry shampoo only when necessary. Trim the hair on the bottom of the feet and clip the nails. This breed is an average shedder.
