The English Setter is an elegant and stylish gun dog with well developed hunting instincts. He is a true gentleman by nature, with a kind and gentle expression. Because of his lovable disposition, beauty, and abilities in the field, the English Setter breed has maintained his popularity as a family companion. He makes a wonderful house dog as well as an excellent personal hunting dog. His good-nature and eagerness to please make him excellent with children and a good candidate for Therapy work. His competitive attitude makes him good at field trials, obedience, conformation, and agility.

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.

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. The English Setter was registered by the AKC in 1878.
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 for elbows as well as hips. Many breeders are starting to do thyroid testing as well.
