Irish setters

Irish Setters are active dogs that require regular exercise.  They also require one-on-one time and thrive on obedience, agility and field training.

In many cases Irish Setters can live to a very old age (our oldest was 16).  But, like all dogs, Irish Setters are prone to certain health issues:

  • HOD
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • PRA
  • Epilepsy
  • Bloat

If you are interested in owning an Irish Setter you should be aware of all of these issues.  We will post more breed information as we get time. :-)
