Irish Setter - Care and Grooming

A spirited, energetic, and friendly breed, the Irish Setter is a great choice of dog for a family pet. These dogs have plenty of love and affection to give to the right owner, and are entertaining, amusing, and very sociable.


 

These active dogs are eager to please, willing, and enthusiastic, but they do thrive on the attention of their owners and if neglected can become bored and very destructive. Some Irish Setters can be willful and strong minded, but these dogs are intelligent and eager to learn, making them well suited to those with little or no experience in dog ownership, as well as for the more experienced.

The Irish Setter gets along well with children, but his large size and boundless energy may prove a problem around smaller children in the household. They will also get along well with other pets, although early socialization is recommended where other animals and pets are concerned. This is a sociable breed, and the Irish Setter will be friendly around strangers too, which makes him ineffective as a watchdog, although he will bark to announce visitors. The Irish Setter needs plenty of exercise, and is not suited to owners that don't have the time or space to provide physical stimulation.

Irish Setter Appearance

The Irish Setter is large in size and is an elegant, dignified, and sturdy dog. The coat of the Irish Setter is long, feathered, and silky, with finer, shorter hair on the head and legs. He has long, silky ears that hang to the side of the head, and a very meaningful expression. The coloring of these dogs is chestnut red or mahogany. The weight of the Irish Setter is around 60 pounds for females and around 70 pounds for males, and the height is around 25-27 inches.

Irish Setter Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Irish Setter are moderate, and you will need to brush his coat twice weekly to keep it in good condition. Look out for and trim any stray hairs, and trim the hair around his bottom for hygiene reasons. You should also check the ears are dry and clean to reduce the chances of infection. The Irish Setter is a medium shedder, and can shed more heavily at certain times of the year, making him unsuitable for those with allergies.

Irish Setter Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Irish Setter is around 12-15 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed, which includes thyroid problems, bloat, epilepsy, PRA, and HD. The parents of the Irish Setter should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Irish Setter History

The Irish Setter, as the name suggests, originates from Ireland, and originally the coat of this breed was red and white.
