About the Irish Setter dog breed:
Description

The Irish Setter is a medium-large sized breed of dog. They weigh between 50-75 pounds and stand between 24 to 26 inches in height. They have strong builds, and are very athletic. They are similar in appearance to Red Setters. Their eyes are hazel or brown. Their coats are feathered finely. Their coats may have a slight wave but are never curly. Their coats are always red. Irish Setters began as a very rare form of the original Irish Setter. The breed was once considered odd, because their coats lacked the white that Irish Setters at the time almost always possessed. Their popularity began to gain in 1850. With this demand for red Irish Setters, Red and White Setters became nearly extinct. We now know all Irish Setters to be pure red.

Country of Origin: Ireland

Temperament

Irish Setters are extremely energetic. They are affectionate and intelligent. They are wonderful with children and other animals. They are an all around great breed. They are lovable and sensitive. Some can be quite hyper active where others are more reserved. The breed is easily house broken. All forms of this breed, whether show or field, make wonderful house pets.

Health Problems

Irish Setters are prone to Posterior Polar Cataracts, which is a minor form of cataract that rarely leads to blindness. They are also prone to bloating, hip dysphasia, and epilepsy. If the dog limps or whimpers when walking you should take them to the vet right away. The earlier a problem is found the better chance for complete recovery.

Exercise

Irish Setters need a great deal of exercise. It may seem that their energy is endless. They are best suited for households with large back yards or country areas where they can run free safely. They are a breed that when let run free, will always return. They are not recommended for apartments. If they are not given proper exercise they may become restless and fail to obey commands. Failure to give proper exercise can lead to aggressive or destructive behavior. Irish Setters are very strong swimmers and love the water. Ball or Frisbee chasing near a lake or pond is a favorite activity.

Special Grooming Needs

Irish Setters require daily brushing. Brushing them will ensure their coats stay soft and healthy. This breed sheds an average amount, usually in summer, and it is best to bathe them during these months. Frequent swimming in the summer months will keep the dog more comfortable.
