Thanks crock!

He is our first English setter.. I think he is orange belton? Currently curled in to a tiny ball, fast asleep at the side of my bed as usual. Has a dog pillow... Wants to sleep by his mum
No doubt he will try and sneak on my bed at some point!

Do you have setters also?

Yep, he's considered an orange belton.

Currently I have three setters, and my parents have two. They're Llewellin Setters, which are basically a field bred strain of English Setters. Tess, another member here, has Llewellins as well. We love 'em.

Crock, do they have the typical setter mentality, or are they easier to train?

We got Tessi at six months from a rescue home, and she has her setter skills for sure. And the fruit loop part! She is very well behaved off the lead, but difficult to control outside of what I like to call the bubble area... But if she sees a rabbit.. And she isn't
T called back in time.. She is gone. We have spent many morning cycling around camp trying to find the little madam!

Rufus.. Well he is just special! We won't go in to what Rufus likes to chase, because quite frankly I find it embarrassing..he is a mans dog! Okay Ill tell you.. Butterflies are a favorite.. But most of all.. Flies! He would do ANYTHING for a fly!

I don't really know how to answer that... I see so much difference between field and bench bred but really only have meaningful experience with field bred. Being solely bred for the field, they have very strong prey drive and hunting/pointing instincts, so relatively little training needed for that and easy to handle in the field; the flip side is that those instincts make training for urban living/pursuits a little (or a lot) more challenging. Ours are all very affectionate and bond strongly (despite that, still independent outdoors), although they are not all cuddle bugs; in general, they are outgoing, friendly, active, easy to train/motivate, easy to handle/patient, (Champ would be our exception to this), intelligent, more sensitive than some other hunting breeds, funny/comics, etc.

Welcome, welcome, welcome. Your dogs are wonderful. I love the pic of the Irish setter with the "flying" ears and the bath time pic is just too cute!!

Welcome! Your dogs are beautiful and look like they have a lot of fun together. We have a 3 yr old shih tzu that we adopted last March. I have learned a lot from this forum.
