Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted April 28, 2014
We received our English Setter as a wedding gift and he was our baby for many years. He was the perfect breed for us as we love the outdoors. Our English Setter loved to camp, swim, ride in a boat, run alongside our bikes and run free in the woods or park. He was a very easy to train dog and stayed with us or returned to us immediately when we called.
Our English Setter was a natural bird hunter and often brought birds to us. He was a very dependable dog who, even with an open gate, would never run away. He was great with other dogs and small animals and children. Our only issue was that he barked constantly and we could never get him to stop. He didn't do well entertaining himself and always wanted to be around us, but was an extremely affectionate dog.
If you enjoy outdoor activities and want a great companion, this dog breed is the one for you!
