Gordon Setter - Care and Grooming

The Gordon Setter is a dog that has a loving and friendly disposition, and is loyal, affectionate, and sociable. An alert and sensible creature, the Gordon Setter has a certain dignity about him yet still loves to play and join in with family activities and fun. These dogs love the attention of their owners, and this sometimes results in jealousy where other pets are concerned. Although the Gordon Setter is suitable for inexperienced owners as well as the more experienced, these dogs can be strong minded and independent, and therefore the owner must be confident and assertive, whilst remaining positive.


The Gordon Setter gets along well with children, but the large size of these dogs could prove a problem if you have smaller children in the home. They have very good memories, which can aid training but can also make bad habits difficult to break. The Gordon Setter is an energetic dog and loves getting involved in a wide range of activities, such as jogging, biking, and hiking. They get along okay with other pets, but can exercise dominance. When it comes to strangers their reaction can vary, and whereas some may be friendly others may be more reserved. The Gordon Setter will bark to raise an alarm if something seems amiss, and this makes him an effective watchdog. He is quick to learn, obedient, and devoted, making this breed a good choice for a family pet.

Gordon Setter Appearance

The Gordon Setter is a large, well build dog with good muscle tone. The coat of the Gordon Setter is long and flat on the body, and shorter and finer on the head and legs. The coat and the long ears of the Gordon Setter have a lovely, silky texture. Coloring of the Gordon Setter is deep black with tan markings. These dogs have a very wise and dignified expression. The weight of the Gordon Setter is around 45-70 pounds for females, and 55-85 pounds for males. The height is 23-26 inches for females and 24-27 inches for males.

Gordon Setter Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Gordon Setter are moderate, and you will need to brush the coat around two or three times weekly, and more often if he is shedding more heavily. You should keep any stray hair trimmed, and also trim the hair around the bottom for hygiene reasons. Also, you will need to check that the ears of the Gordon Setter are dry and clean to reduce the chances of infection. This is a medium to high shedder, and this means that he is not the ideal choice of those suffering from allergies.

Gordon Setter Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Gordon Setter is around 10-12 years, and although this is a largely healthy and hardy breed there are a few health problems to look out for. This includes bloat, thyroid problems, PRA, and HD. The parents of the Gordon Setter puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Gordon Setter History

The Gordon Setter originates from Scotland, and these dogs were developed in the 1700s by the Fourth Duke of Gordon, from whom they take their name. They were introduced in the United States in 1842.
