Favorite Images of Irish Setters

Animals list created by kathy Avatar

A list of my favorite images of Irish Setters.


The Irish Setter is a setter - a breed of gundog - and family dog.

The term Irish Setter is commonly used to encompass the show-bred dog recognised by the American Kennel Club as well as the field-bred Red Setter recognised by the Field Dog Stud Book.

The coat is moderately long, silky and of a red or chestnut color. It requires frequent brushing to maintain its condition and keep it mat-free.

The undercoat is abundant in winter weather and the top coat is fine. Their coats should also feather in places such as the tail, ears, chest, legs and body.

Irish Setters range in height from 24 to 28 inches (61 to 71 cm), males weigh 65 to 75 lb (29 to 34 kg) and females 55 to 65 lb (25 to 29 kg).

Irish Setters are deep chested dogs with small waists.

An Irish Setter's life expectancy tends to be around 11 to 12 years.

Irish Setters get along well with children, other dogs and will enthusiastically greet visitors. As a result, Irish Setters make excellent companion animals and family pets.

Even though they do well with household pets, small animals may pose a problem for this breed as they are a hunting breed.
