  • Care

    Brush your Gordon Setter at least once a week to prevent matting and minimize shedding. Also, trim hair around the feet, ears, and tail as needed to keep their coats looking neat and tidy. Gordon Setters' long ears may make them more susceptible to ear infections. For this reason, check and clean their ears regularly to prevent infections from developing. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for the overall long-term health of all dogs. In addition to scheduling professional dental cleanings, establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth brushing.

    Gordon Setters are prone to bloat (also known as twisted stomach). To help prevent this life-threatening condition, avoid feeding them immediately after any kind of vigorous activity. Wait at least an hour after meals before allowing them to run or exercise.
