English Setter Overview

The English Setter was bred in England more than 400 years ago. The name setter comes from the dog's habbit of setting/crouching after finding birds so that the hunters nets could be thrown over the dogs head. This is a medium to large sized dog with a long head, dropped ears, and a long tail.

The English Setter needs an active owner who enjoys hunting, jogging, agility training, or some other active canine sport. Although most puppies are pretty rowdy and need supervision around young children, the breed is good with kids. English Setters are usually good with other dogs.
