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.

The Gordon can adapt to varied living conditions; however, as a sporting dog, he needs regular outdoor exercise. As a hunting companion, the Gordon is often described as "a personal hunting dog", meaning that the dog works well in the field with the master that he shares his home with.

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.

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. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1878.
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.
