Very lively, energetic, and impulsive. The Irish Setter loves to run. This breed should always be kept on a lead when outdoors as they have the tendency to run off and can be difficult to catch. Requires firm and consistent training.

Does your Irish Setter bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.

I am looking to find a pup to train for upland bird hunting and have heard the Irish Setter is the best to hunt. What are the pros and cons and other possible breeds please?

The reason why there are so many dogs in the hound group is because there are many different hunting styles. The main thing to do is to find out your hunting style and which breed of dog would work best for that. The Irish Setter, for example, is a very loyal hunting dog and works well once it knows what its job is, but they are known to be difficult to train. They can get distracted easily as young adults and need a firm, but a gentle owner to work with the dog. The best thing to do is to find a breeder close to you that hunts with their dogs and go with him/her on a hunt to see how the dogs work.

Are Irish setters good with kids?

Irish Setters make excellent family dogs they are extremely good with children, although I would always suggest parental guidance for the safety of the child and the puppy. Children who have never been exposed to puppies can injure the little one by accident because they are not aggressive.

Irish Setter's are very energetic, but they are awesome with kids. The dog was great for all of my family!

When your pup is tired and lays down to sleep, do as the old sayin' says. "Let sleeping dogs lie."

My male Irish setter loves to be on my lap and his head on my shoulder. They are very lovable.

I have had female Irish Setters since 1970. The females cuddle big time and are easier to train.
