The Gordon Setter is a loyal, friendly, obedient, loving dog. Smart and caring, this breed is great with children and willing to learn. However, being a hunting dog, this breed needs a lot of exercise in order to keep from becoming restless. Best to socialize early so as to avoid negative behaviors from becoming cemented.
The Gordon Setter comes in only one set of colors, which is black and tan, with only specific markings accepted in show dogs.
