gordon setters

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on English Setters?

I’ve met some show line setters and they are kind, gentle puppers. Field/working line setters have a reputation for being stubborn trouble makers! 😆 But overall, they are good dogs.

Here are some fun facts from @coonhoundchronicles:

There are a couple types of setter breeds: English setter, Irish setter, Red and White setter and Gordon setter. Setters are a gundog breed that silently searches for game by scent. When prey is encountered the dog freezes rather than chasing after the game. Setters get their name from their distinctive stance; a sort of crouch or “set” upon finding their quarry. Most setters are born with a natural proclivity to hunting and are used in dove or quail hunting to point out and flush game. As for temperament, they are generally happy and playful dogs with fairly high energy in working lines.
