Red and White Setter

  • 20/11/2010

The Irish Red and White Setter is a breed of dog, more specifically a setter. It is virtually identical in use and temperament to its cousin, the Irish Setter, but is more often found as a working gundog.

The dogs range in height from 22 1/2 to 26, and weigh 50 to 70 pounds (27-32 kg).

The coat is long and silky, mostly white, with deep red patches. The tail of the Irish Red and White Setter is well feathered.

This well proportioned medium sized dog is a very powerful, hardy dog, athletic rather than racy. It is exuberant outdoors, but makes a quiet family pet indoors. The Red and White Setter is a strong and fast looking dog without appearing lean or bulky. They are very balanced in appearance and have the ability to move effortlessly even when running.

The beautiful, appealing coat is straight and flat. As gundogs, they take their own time in learning their duties; they are loyal and reliable hunters. They display a strong zest for life and make great friends for kids who are big enough to stand up to their noisy and indiscipline play. They attach very well with the family and love to play with children. They have protective instincts and they become good watch dog. Despite smaller in size it's an agile and ideal gundog.

Irish Red and White Setters are low-maintenance, need regular brushing, and nail and ear care. Regular grooming as a pup is a useful tool in the bonding experience, leading to trust when training begins. Irish Red and White Setters require daily brushing, exercise and space.

Their intelligence, sensitivity, and desire to please, combine to make them very trainable dogs. But all training should be undertaken from a positive and motivational.

They are not fit for apartment life as they require lot of exercise and are good runners.

Red and White Setter Puppies litter size is 3 to 5 and easy to raise. They can be prone to jumping up for attention but with firm and consistent training will be wonderfully behaved pets.

They can be the most devoted and affectionate of dogs
