Is The English Setter Easy To Train?

Don’t assume that just because you own a male English Setter that all you have to do is toss a tennis ball for them and they will obey. As a matter of fact, it’s not that simple because, as pets, the dogs are born not to obey. The trick in training them, and probably for all breeds, is to first and foremost understand what the breed is and then, as their personalities evolve, learn to take on their natural behavior so that obedience is a “trained” reaction from the dog and not a learned response. This is the key to successful training. Obedience should always be positive in order to break the breeding habit. As with most breeds, obedience training should begin at a very early age.

What Health Issues Does The English Setter Have?

Although the breed is a healthy dog with very few health problems, such as ear infections and chewing problems, the best nutrition has to be taken care of to prevent genetic health issues. One of the major health issues of the English Setter is ear infections, especially when wet or when they are young. As long as the dogs are properly groomed and cared for, ear infections are very rare and do not have long term health effects. The ears must be washed regularly to avoid ear infections and should not be treated with antibiotics. The other major health issue in the English Setter is the genetic health issue for dewclaws. A breed standard for the English Setter requires that dewclaws must be removed by clipping. Dewclaws can become infected and cause pain and problems if the animals are left outside too long and not properly taken care of.

What Is The History of The English Setter?

The most obvious difference between the modern English Setter and its ancestors is the way that the setter markings were fixed on to the coat. It was initially determined by a dog’s “voting rights” and there was a hierarchy based upon their mother’s coat. As far as can be determined, there were variations to the typical setter markings as each pup was born. It was not until 1505 that there was a recognized standard by which to distinguish setter types. This was the start of a custom known as the English Setter “Test” (or the “Proof”). A setter would prove their worth in hunting by their diligence and perseverance as shown by the amount of time that they could maintain or attract birds to the pack.
