Overview
The Irish Setter is a very high energy and intelligent breed; this dog is full of life. Can be somewhat high strung, but are sensitive as well. A very loveable breed that enjoys being around people. Jolly, giddy, and stubborn are used to describe this beautiful breed. Will surely be a joy to own.
Character
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.
Temperament
The Irish Setter is affectionate, loving, and sensitive, this breed is not recommended for the average home. Being very active, they can become somewhat destructive if left alone for long periods. This breed requires entertainment if they are to be well mannered and respectful.
Care
An average shedding breed, daily brushing or combing is required to keep the coat flat and free of mats or tangles. Bathing only when necessary, this is a rather clean breed and does not require much coat maintenance.
Coat
A silky and feathered coat, this breed has a medium length coat. Acceptable colors for this breed are mahogany or rich chestnut red. Black is a disqualification. Minimal white allowed.
Training
Firm handling is a must with this stubborn and free spirited breed. May be difficult to train, but consistency and exercise will ensure a happy life with your Irish Setter. Does well in hunting activities and water retrieving.
Activity
The Irish Setter requires regular exercise. Three walks per day are recommended as this dog has the tendency to become restless. This breed is not for apartment life and does best with a medium to large sized yard, or great for the country environment.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Irish Setter puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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.

The best breed for that in my opinion would be the Border Collie as they have a very high energy level and are very smart.

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

Is this a normal characteristic for a puppy of this breed? I'm starting to get concerned. She has been spayed and is apparently in good health.
