This strong, intelligent dog is not just a different coloured version of the Irish Setter, but a distinct breed. The Irish Red and White Setter’s keen nose and ability to handle a variety of terrain and weather conditions make him an excellent hunter. Known for his endurance in the field, the high-energy Irish Red and White Setter needs ample exercise. Having a calm, friendly temperament, this breed is a good family companion. Weekly brushing is recommended along with routinely checking for burrs and matting in his feathered coat.
