DetailsEnglish Setter_Bird Dog _Designed by Pace Parker ( http://www.123dapp.com/sculpt/bird-dog/2373421 ) _English setter, breed of sporting dog that has served as a gun dog in England for more than 400 years and has been bred in its present form since about 1825. It is sometimes called the Llewellin setter or the Laverack setter for the developers of two strains of the breed. Like the other setters, it locates birds for the hunter. Characteristically rugged yet aristocratic in appearance, it stands 24 to 25 inches (61 to 63.5 cm) and weighs 40 to 70 pounds (18 to 32 kg). The working strain of the breed tends to be smaller than dogs bred for show. It has a long head, hanging ears, a deep chest, and a pointed tail. Its coat develops long feathering on the ears, chest, legs, and tail and may be white flecked with tan (called orange belton) or with black (blue belton) or tricolour (blue belton with tan on muzzle, over the eyes, and on the legs); lemon or liver belton coloration is less common. A valued hunter and companion dog, the English setter is a people-oriented and friendly breed with a mellow disposition. _The English Setter should be affectionate, kind, and gentle. He's lively, as befits a sporting dog, but not so active that he'll exhaust you. An English Setter will bark to let you know someone is approaching the home, but he welcomes people that you introduce to him.Temperament doesn't happen in a vacuum. It's affected by a number of factors, including heredity, training, and socialization. Puppies with nice temperaments are curious and playful, willing to approach people and be held by them. Choose the middle-of-the-road puppy, not the one who's beating up his littermates or the one who's hiding in the corner. _The English Setter who's treated harshly will simply become more stubborn and less willing to do your bidding. Your best bet is to keep training interesting. Keep training sessions short, and always end on a high note, praising him for something he did well.
