Also referred as the Red Setter, the Irish Setter is a gundog. With a long and lean appearance, this athletic working dog ranges between 26-28 inches in height for males, and 24-26 inches for females, while their weight ranges between 65-75 pounds for males, and 55-65 pounds for females.
The Irish Setter has a medium-length hair that is thick, flat, and soft textured. The reddish-brown coat of this breed may appear wavy or straight, but never curly. Coat colors come in reddish browns, ranging from shades of chestnut to mahogany; some white markings on the feet and chest are permissible.
The Irish Setter is in need of exercise constantly. Long brisk walks thrice a day is recommended as this breed is inclined to be restless and destructive if not given sufficient exercise. This breed is not ideal for apartment life, and will do best with medium to large-sized securely fenced area.
The Irish Setter is enthusiastic, active, and loving breed. They love to play, and will vigorously seek for playmates, often running in circles around them. They generally get along with other animals, particularly horses, which makes them not suitable for a guard dog, and despite their lively disposition, they get well with children. They love to be with their owners, and require discipline with a gentle manner. This breed is generally spirited, outgoing, and friendly.

The moderately shedding Irish Setter requires daily combing and/or brushing to keep their coats flat and mat and tangle-free. As with other breeds, bathing should only be done when necessary as this breed is generally clean, and does not require that much coat care.
The Irish Setter is a highly intelligent and sharp dog that is very skillful in problem solving and is able to think independently. Training this breed should be done in partnership of the owner instead of dominating them. They are eager to please, and will simply do what is commanded of them. Spending time with this dog and making them a part of the family is a key component in training and obedience.
The Irish Setter is not a dominant dog, yet can be a little stubborn and independent. They are typically less compliant if they are not given enough exercise, so it is important to have them well-exercised prior to training.
As with other dogs, harsh training methods should never be used to train the Irish Setter. They need to feel they belong to their master’s life and should always be given positive interaction and attention.
The athletic and high-strung Irish Setter requires a home with a securely fenced yard. Children are alright, as long as chasing and rough housing is prohibited. As working breed, they love to be given tasks to accomplish.
