Gordon Setter

Gordon Setter


Height: 23-27 inches

Weight: 45-80 lbs.

Life Span 10-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Sporting Dogs

Overview
Gordon setters are very affectionate with their families but reserved with strangers. They need to be obedience trained and exposed early to diverse social situations to avoid behavior problems.

Gordons need a firm, gentle hand and lots of praise. They can be aggressive with other dogs (but generally get along with other types of animals) and can be good barking watchdogs.

Appearance
The coat is soft, shiny, straight or slightly waved, with feathering on the ears, stomach, chest, tail, and legs.
Coat color is black with rich chestnut or mahogany markings over the eyes, on the muzzle and throat, on the chest, inside the hindlegs, under the tail, and on the feet. Narrow black stripes may appear on the toes and there may be a little white on the chest.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Gordon setters need to be brushed and combed a few times a week. They need daily exercise--a brisk walk, a jog, or a hike in the woods will make them happy.

Origins
Gordon setters were used in 17th-century Scotland for tracking, pointing, and retrieving. In the mid-18th century, the Duke of Gordon made the breed popular for hunting.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, hypothyroidism, cerebellar cortical abiotrophy (a congenital disease causing degeneration of cells in the cerebellum, which controls coordination), epilepsy.
