This elegant gundog is around 400 years old and would 'set' birds – lie down quietly to indicate their location to the hunter, who would then throw a net over to capture the game.
Lovers of the great outdoors, who want a noble, friendly, calm addition to their home, and can provide the company and exercise this breed needs.
A part-time pet parent. English Setters need company - ideally canine and human – and considerable exercise, so best suits someone who is at home most of the day.
People will amusingly say "You should put a saddle on it!"
High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Jacket and skinny trousers
Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
