Sporting Breed

English Setters from Bayside English Setters

The English Setter, one of three types of Setters (Irish and Gordon), is an affectionate pet that does well with children.  An easy-going personality contributes to their ability to be comfortable with strangers and other pets.  Because of their long coats they need to be brushed almost on a daily basis to keep it from knotting.   The English Setter needs a lot of exercise and may be best suited to life in the country where they can enjoy a fenced yard.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
