About this Breed

The Irish Setter is a very regal, yet athletic pup that turn everyone’s head at the dog park. They originated in Ireland during the 1700’s as a hunting companion. The breed later took America by storm in the late 1800’s and again during the 1960’s and 70’s. With their origins rooted in hunting, Irish Setters come packed to the brim with energy. Expect endless amounts of play dates with a tennis ball. This is also a sensitive breed, which can turn into behavioral problems without good training and socialization from an early age. Irish Setters have a gorgeous coat, which requires a lot of work. These dogs need groomed more frequently along with occasional baths. With great beauty comes great responsibility.
