Irish Setters are high energy, caring, and smart. They have exceptional olfactory senses and a honed skill at assisting in hunting. While they may be a challenge to train if not given enough exercise, they can be a blast to be around if they are properly socialized. They are great with children and other pets and shouldn’t be difficult to housebreak, but this is all dependent on whether they are given enough physical and mental exercise.
The Irish Setter comes in a couple of colors, such as reddish browns from chestnut to mahogany, with some white on chest and feet cropping up from time to time.
