I recently purchased a 10 month old, started, English Setter. I observed this dog in the field and also up close in a living room setting. I was impressed on both accounts and took her home. Her name is Ava. She has been in the house for a week and 2 days. She shows some signs of timidness when corrected but listens fairly well. She was "started" by a friend of the kennel owner and spent some time in a household setting but more a kennel dog than anything else. She has a great disposition almost all the time but I am having a problem with her and the kids. She has growled at my little one (3yrs) a few times. Today it was over a toy. She also growled at my 8yr old once a few days ago but I'm not sure why. The children have had dogs in the past and are NOT being anoying to the dog, I am certain of that. I was present every time she growled at the 3 yr old and she was not doing anything she shouldn't have. I purchased this breed because of all that is written about their great disposition. I spoke with the kennel owner a few times and he was shocked at her behavior. I am worried that this dog will not turn into the pet i had hoped. I refuse to have a dog that I have to worry about and can't trust. Should I be looking to find her a new home or am I being too quick?Could this be just an adjustment from kennel life? I have had dogs my whole life but always from a young puppy. She recieves nothing but love from everyone in the family and even though she has only been here a short time, and growls at them, the kids are very attached.
