The Irish Setter is an active, aristocratic bird dog, rich red in color, substantial yet elegant in build. Standing over two feet tall at the shoulder, the dog has a straight, fine, glossy coat, longer on ears, chest, tail and back of legs. Afield, the Irish Setter is a swift-moving hunter; at home, a sweet natured, trainable companion.
At their best, the lines of the Irish Setter so satisfy in overall balance that artists have termed it the most beautiful of all dogs. The correct specimen always exhibits balance, whether standing or in motion. Each part of the dog flows and fits smoothly into its neighboring parts without calling attention to itself.

Na Britských ostrovoch sa setre chovajú ako poľovné psy. Patria k takzvaným stavačom, čo znamená, že vďaka mimoriadne jemnému čuchu nevyplašia pernatú zver zo skrýše, ale ju vystavia a nehybne čakajú na povel svojho pána.Okrem vystavovania sa setre dobre osvedčujú aj pri hladaní a prinášaní zveri. Dobre vycvičený seter, nasadený pri poľovačke, je snaživým a neúnavným druhom svojho pána. Vďaka kráse a elegancií sa v súčasnosti setre častejšie držia ako rodinné, domové, sprievodné a výstavné psy. www.irskysetter.sk

 

Many observers find Irish Setters to be among the most beautiful of all dog breeds. Their dark red color, profuse feathering, and happy-go-lucky nature make them quite attractive to many dog lovers. However, Irish Setters are not the breed for everyone! They are very energetic dogs who require plenty of exercise, attention and affection. More info: Irish Setter Breed FAQ
