Irish Setter Dog BreedThe Irish Setter is a beautiful, happy-go-lucky dog that was bred to hunt enthusiastically with lots of energy. This dog breed has a natural sense of happiness and excitability towards life. He makes a fantastic companion with both adults and children so long as there is enough activity to keep the dog happy. In fact, if the Irish Setter does not get enough daily exercise then he can become easily frustrated and sensitive toward distractions.
The Irish Setter is an amiable breed of dog which takes great pleasure in pleasing its owners and the rest of the family. Although he would make an ideal pet for a family with kids, it is noted that the Irish Setter may be a little too rough and excitable with very small children.
Upkeep And Maintenance:
The ideal living situation
would be that of a large fenced-in yard with plenty of room for him to
move around. The Irish Setter can live perfectly happy as an outdoor
dog and during warm temperatures, however, as with most dogs, he would
need to be inside during the cold winter months.
Health Information: The Irish
Setter has an average lifespan of up to 14 years. Major health concerns
which should be addressed to your veterinarian would be gastric
torsion, CHD, and PRA. Less important health concerns which may not
affect this breed, but sometimes spring up are: HOD, hypothyroidism,
megaesophagus, osteosarcoma, and panosteitis. Veterinarians also
recommend that the Irish Setter dog breed be specifically tested for
thyroid, DNA for PRA, eye problems, hip dysplasia, and cardiac.
