English Setter


The English Setter, also known as the Lawerack or the Laverack, is a breed of dog in the Sporting Group. This beautiful and graceful breed is known for their agility, intelligence, and athletic feats, but they are also famous for their extremely sweet and gentle temperaments. The English Setter was recognized by the AKC in 1884 and AKC approved in 1986.

The average English Setter stands 24 to 25 inches high at the shoulders and weighs between 45 and 80 pounds (the females are smaller and lighter than the males). Their soft feathery coat is easy to care for with regular brushing, but their ears should be cleaned on a regular basis and frequently checked for any signs of infections.
