no finer dog than an English Setter- lazy in the house, SO LOVING to all, great field dog if you hunt, super walking/running companion, no slobber, minimal shed, hearts of gold

The English Setter. From the best available information, it appears that the English Setter was a trained bird dog in England more than 400 years ago. They're temperament is best described as a "Gentleman by Nature". However, it can also be strong-willed and mischievous. English Setters are energetic, people-oriented dogs, that are well suited to families who can give them attention and activity. They do have a couch potato side though, & many are good with children.
