English Setter - Care and Grooming

A lively and spirited dog with grace, energy, enthusiasm, and a sweet nature, the English Setter has plenty to offer to families. This is a devoted and responsive dog that loves to shower his family with affection and devotion. The English Setter loves the companionship of his owners and family, and is a very sociable creature. These dogs have plenty of energy, and will thrive on spending time with their loved ones enjoying some activity and exercise. The English Setter does not like to be neglected and left alone for long periods, and is therefore not suited to those that do not have the time to commit to looking after and paying attention to a pet. This said, the sweet nature of the English Setter means that he is well suited to both experienced and inexperienced owners.

The English Setter loves children and gets along very well with them, although his size and energy levels may prove a problem around very young children. He also tends to get along well with other pets as well as strangers, and has a very sociable disposition. Some English Setters can be willful and stubborn, and this can lead to resistance. They have very good memories and are quick learners, but can also develop bad habits that can be difficult to break. You may find that the English Setter is slow to housebreak.

English Setter Appearance

The English Setter is a medium to large dog with a sweet yet alert expression, and a sturdy build. The weight of the English Setter is 35-45 pounds, and the height is around 22-24 inches for females and 24-25 inches for males. The English Setter has a dense, straight, silky coat, and the coloring of the coat can vary, and includes white with colored flecks or markings that may be lemon, blue, liver, or orange, and tri-color.

English Setter Grooming

The English Setter is a medium shedder, which means that he may not be best suited to those with allergies. You will need to brush and comb his coat a few times a week to keep it in good condition and to avoid matting. During heavier shedding periods, you may need to step up the grooming. The hair on the tail and feet may need to be trimmed occasionally, and you should check the ears of the English Setter for hygiene reasons and to reduce the risk of infections.

English Setter Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the English Setter is around 10-12 years, and this is generally a healthy and hardy breed with fewer health problems than many other breeds. Some of the health problems and disorders that have been linked to the English Setter include cancer, thyroid problems, HD, and deafness. Puppies should come with a BAER certificate, and parents of the English Setter puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

English Setter History

Developed in England, the English Setter is one of the oldest types of setter around, and is thought ot be the products of breeding between various Spanish spaniels and pointers.
