The Irish Setter is one of the most popular breeds of setters. This setter is elegant and beautiful. Irish Setters, which originated in Ireland, were bred primarily to work with hunters to hunt game birds.
The Irish Setter comes from several different breeds, including the Irish Water Spaniel, Spanish Pointers and the English and Gordon Setters. These dogs were carefully interbred to produce the stately look and demeanor of the modern Irish Setter.
This dog, which is classified as a member of the Sporting Dog Group, was first registered by the AKC in 1878. The Irish Setter is also known as the Red Setter. The spectacular coat of the Irish Setter is legendary for its rich deep chestnut or mahogany color.
In fact, because of its beauty, many breeders preferred the Irish Setter for its look rather than its hunting ability. So much attention was paid to increasing the beauty of the dog that it almost completely lost its hunting instincts. Today, some breeders are working to restore these instincts.
This breed’s hair is moderately long and straight. The Irish Setter is a large dog, weighing in at 65-75 pounds and standing at a height of 26-28 inches. The females are a bit smaller, weighing 55-65 pounds and standing 24-26 inches tall.
Apartment living is not recommended for the Irish Setter. The setter needs room to roam. A fenced large yard is the only way to contain this athletic breed, and even that doesn’t always keep your dog from roaming.
Irish Setters must get regular exercise to vent their energy. If not exercised enough, this breed will become rambunctious and bored. So get out with your Irish Setter and start walking (or, more accurately, running.)
The Irish setter is one of the most affectionate breeds and loves to be with people. This breed needs constant interaction with humans and does not like being left alone. Unfortunately, their large size and tremendous energy means that these dogs are often left in the yard for much, if not all, of the day.
To show you their displeasure, they will often chew up items and bark constantly. If you work all day or want a dog that will spend most of its time as an outside dog, then this is not the breed for you.
Training the Irish Setter is not always easy. The Irish Setter is an intelligent breed and most of these dogs have an exceptional memory. The breed will remember everything it is taught, both the good and the bad.
Early training is mandatory, because without training, the setter can be a very stubborn and willful animal. This dog is overflowing in enthusiasm and will quickly develop bad habits if left unchecked.
Grooming the Irish Setter is a pleasure. Many owners take pride in brushing and combing the silky coat regularly to keep it free of matting. You may want to have the coat professionally trimmed every few months. A professional dog groomer can keep the Irish Setter’s coat gleaming. Irish Setters shed quite a bit. Their hair will come off on everything they come in contact with.
If your dog romps in the woods, you should be prepared to do additional grooming to keep the coat free from burrs and tangles. You should also pay special attention to the coat when the dog is molting.
Irish Setters are fairly healthy dogs, but they are prone to several genetic disorders. Thyroid or epilepsy problems are common, as is bloat.
If you want a good natured dog with plenty of energy, then an Irish Setter may be the perfect choice for you. Just be prepared for some serious obedience work when your dog is a puppy, or you may be the one being walked when you take your full grown dog for a stroll.
Have you ever purchased a car that was a lemon? Facing problem after problem robs you of the pleasure of enjoying your new car. Unfortunately, there are dogs that are lemons, too. A dog with health problems can lead to heartache and empty checkbooks. A good dog breeder will stand behind health guarantees and do everything possible to set things right if you end up with a dog that has a serious health defect.
There are several types of dog breeders. The first type is a person who shows dogs and works hard to maintain the breed standard. The puppies this breeder produces will often be more expensive than other puppies, but there are several advantages to buying one. These breeders test their dogs for common genetic diseases and they only breed their best dogs, because they are breeding dogs to acquire a new generation of champions. This means that the resulting puppies that are not show quality are usually still quite nice.
The second type of dog breeder is usually called a backyard breeder. These breeders rarely show dogs and often have a litter of puppies just because they want other people to have a dog just like theirs. Unfortunately, few backyard breeders test for diseases or know how to look for traits that match the breed standard.
The final type of dog breeder is often called a puppy mill breeder. These breeders have many different breeds of dogs and often breed their females until the dogs become run down and die. Puppies are frequently very poor examples of the breed and may have genetic health problems as well as diseases such as Kennel Cough.
Obviously, you want to find a good dog breeder. However, knowing the importance of finding a good dog breeder doesn’t always make it easy to locate one. Fortunately, if you look for signs of a good breeder and ask the breeder the right questions, you should be able to tell if you’ve found a good breeder.
First, take a look at how the breeder is advertising. Breeders who advertise in newspapers are not necessarily unethical. Some of them love their dog breed, but do not care for the show world. However, be wary of an advertisement that lists puppies from five different dog breeds and a few poodle mixes thrown in for good measure.
Next, ask the breeder to allow you to stop in and look at the puppies. If the breeder refuses and offers to deliver the puppy or meets you outside with a portable pen full of puppies, it may very well be because of safety concerns. However, it could also mean that the breeder’s kennel is dirty and the dogs are not cared for properly.
Once you’ve seen those adorable puppies, do not pull out your check book. Instead, ask the breeder whether they’ve been to a vet and ask about a health guarantee. Some breeders vaccinate the puppies themselves, but there is a chance they did not give the vaccinations correctly and that the puppies are still vulnerable to disease. Also, the puppies could have serious hereditary defects, such as a severe heart murmur, that a preliminary health exam would have uncovered.
Finally, ask for references from previous owners and get the name and phone number of the breeder’s veterinarian. Then, go home and call the references and ask them about their experience with the breeder and ask how their puppies turned out. If you are satisfied with the response of the references, call the veterinarian to verify that the breeder really did bring the puppies in.
Now, you can finally buy your new puppy. Of course, first you will have to decide which of those little balls of fluff is the right dog for you!
