Dog Breeds

  • English Setter

    English Setters are medium-height, substantial dogs. Their clean outline and symmetrical shape give them an elegant, graceful appearance.

  • Care

    To maintain their long, silky coats, brush English Setters a few times a week, and bathe them monthly. A long-toothed metal comb works well to prevent tangles and mats. Trim the hair around their face and feet regularly to keep them looking their best. Also, trim nails regularly to keep them at an appropriate length. Nails that are too long can cause pain or difficulty walking. Dental care is an integral part of any dog's long-term health. In addition to professional cleanings, establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth-brushing and dental treats or toys.

    English Setters have long, lean, and muscular necks that contribute to their graceful appearance. Their tails form a smooth continuation of their topline, tapering to a fine point. Silky hair hangs loosely to create a fringe on their tails.

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
