Gordon Setter

Prized by Scottish hunters for his strength and stamina, the Gordon Setter is a dependable, eager-to-work hunter. With an easygoing temperament, he also is an excellent family companion. The heaviest of the three setter breeds and the only one with a black-and-tan coat, the Gordon Setter requires vigorous daily exercise. His slightly wavy coat needs regular grooming.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
Did you know?
A favourite of Duke Alexander the 4th of Gordon, the Gordon Setter was popular in Scotland in the late 1700s, when the breed was known as the black & tan setter. Although not as fast in the field as other sporting breeds, the Gordon Setter is known for his pointing accuracy.
