Gordon Setter - Guide to Gordon Setters

Description: Gordon Setters are large, sturdy and robust with a glossy black coat noted for distinctive tan markings and plentiful feathering. Gordon Setters are friendly, intelligent and fiercely loyal dogs that exude confidence and appear noble and dignified.

Gordon Setters, initially bred as bird dogs, have ancestral roots dating possibly as far back as the 1600s in Scotland. The Duke of Gordon is responsible for establishing the breed in the 1820s. When two gentlemen by the names of Daniel Webster and George Blunt imported Gordon Setters to America in 1842, they brought with them two dogs which were purchased by kennels owned by the Duke of Gordon.

Height: The height for Gordon Setter dogs: 24-27 inches (61-69 cm) and for females 23-26 inches (58-66 cm.)

Owners must also always maintain 'leadership' with their Gordon Setter, otherwise these dogs may become stubborn. The breed is needs plenty of vigorous daily exercise. Gordon Setters should never be allowed to roam freely because of their strong hunting instinct which may lead them into traffic. These dogs are reserved with strangers.
