English setter Irish setter Gordon setter

 

The Gordon setter has the reputation of being more easily trained than either the English setter of Irish setter but all three are superb bird dogs for anyone who relishes working those powerful, stamina-filled dogs in open countryside. Like the true pointer, setters are specialist dogs and are rarely employed as general purpose gundogs. Because of their striking good looks they are very popular on the show bench and it is vitally important that anyone buying a puppy to train as a bird dog thoroughly investigates the working credentials of the particular line they are considering.
