The Irish Setter's ancestry involves the English Setter and the Gordon Setters. The red and white variety is less popular than the red Irish setter; this is why the Irish Setter is sometimes known as the Red Setter. Setters were breed to "set" or locate game birds and then remain still while the hunter shot or netted the birds.
This breed is full of energy and high in spirits. They are very affectionate sometimes overbearingly so. They can be a challenge to train, as they are easily distracted, the effort is rewarding to both dog and owner. Training should be firm but never harsh.

Grooming- Low-maintenance, regular brushing, nail and ear care. Regular grooming as a pup is a useful tool in the bonding experience, leading to trust when training begins.

Exercise- plenty of exercise is needed, daily walks and off lead running.

Health- This breed is generally sound but some can be prone to bloat, eye problems, hip and elbow dysplasia and epilepsy. For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
