Setter Irlandés

The Irish Red Setter is spread throughout Europe



The origin of dogs Setter dates back to at least the second half of the 16th century: John Caius mentions them in 1570 The British book cart Canibus, What, as its name suggests, is dedicated to the dogs of Great Britain.

It is believed that the Irish Setter came up much later, in the XVIII century, as a result of a crossing. His ancestry is not known for sure, but it is believed to have developed from Irish Water Spaniel, with possible contributions from Irish Terrier, the English Pointer and the Gordon Setter. However, en los primeros tiempos no tenía el pelaje rojo caoba liso que conocemos hoy, but a red and white fur, especially appreciated for hunting, since it was easy to spot in the bush. This Irish Red and White Setter -que todavía existe hoy en día, although it is more rare- habría dado lugar gradualmente, in the course of the 18th century, to the Irish Red Setter. The Irish Red Setter stabilized as a distinct breed in the early 19th century, differing in particular by having longer legs than its bicolor ancestor.

Aunque sus orígenes exactos son poco claros, the geographical origin of Irish Setter is well identified. Your story begins, of course, In Ireland, where hunters tried to develop a successful breed of dog for tracking, monitoring and recovery of game birds. They used it as a pointing dog that locates game by freezing in sample position, allowing the hunter to know where the bird is. The term “Setter” comes from this use for which the animal was developed. He was very appreciated from the beginning for his excellent nose, that allows you to detect odors in the air, mientras que la mayoría de los perros de caza rastrean la caza en el suelo. Esta característica le hizo muy popular desde el principio.

In addition to his hunting skills, the Irish Red Setter it was also quickly distinguished by its elegant appearance and beautiful mahogany color. Since the early years of the 19th century, some breeders specialized in the production of specimens of this color. Jason Hazzard, of Timaskea, in County Fermanagh, Sir Saint George Gore and the Earl of Enniskillen they were some of the first breeders of the breed. For example, the conde the Enniskillen He decided, already in 1812, que sólo quería tener perros de pelo rojo en sus perreras.

In 1862, a specimen called Palmerston stood out for the especially elongated shape of his head and the slenderness of his silhouette. These differences almost cost him his life, ya que su dueño consideró que estas características lo hacían inadecuado para la caza y decidió ahogarlo. A fan of the breed stepped in and saved him, then made him famous by presenting him in many dog ​​shows. Palmerston dio a luz a un gran número de descendientes, y se acepta que aparece en el árbol genealógico de la mayoría de los perros Irish Red Setter that exist today. The success of Palmerston in the beauty contests in which he was exposed he was emulated, since without ceasing to be a recognized hunting dog, the Setter Irish Red later became a popular show dog.

The international spread of the Irish Setter

The Irish Setter was imported to the United States already in 1875 and quickly became a star. In fact, the first representative of the race that set foot in America, Elcho, became a star both for his presentations at dog shows and for his effectiveness in the field. It is not strange that the race is one of those recognized since its creation by the American Kennel Club (AKC). El primer representante de la raza así registrado en 1878 it was called Admiral. With regard to the United Kennel Club (UKC), la otra organización canina de referencia en el país, recognized the breed in 1914.

Poco después de su llegada al país, the race that is sometimes called Red Setter to distinguish it from its white and red cousin it quickly became one of the most popular breeds at American dog shows. Among 1874 and 1948, nothing less than 760 of their representatives were rewarded in the rings. He was much less noticed for his field skills, ya que durante el mismo período sólo 5 specimens were awarded for their hunting skills. This alerted some breed enthusiasts, that in 1940 published in the magazine Field and Stream a call for its rebirth as a hunting dog, its original function. His initiative was quite successful: So, aunque se puso mucho empeño en sus características estéticas, the Irish Setter was able to retain both of its functions and remains a highly prized hunting dog for tracking game birds, like the teal, the duck, partridge and quail. También es habitual distinguir entre líneas de sangre de exposición y de trabajo, that differ in size and robustness.

Of course, not only the United States adopted the Irish Setter. Your appreciation for the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1954 contributed a lot to its spread throughout the world.

Recognitions “Irish Red Setter”

The Irish Setter is now recognized by the world's leading organizations, that distinguish it from Irish Red and White Setter. Muchos no reconocieron esto último hasta mucho después. In fact, the Irish Setter enjoys much greater popularity than its ancestor, aunque este último esté un poco a media asta

This is the case, in particular, of United States, where he continues to be present both in the field with the hunters and in the exhibition rings. However, It is far from the heights it reached in the years 60 and 70, thanks mostly to Disney's production of 1962 en la que aparecía un Irish Setter call Big Red, así como al Rey Timahoe, the famous White House dog during the presidency of Richard Nixon (1969 to 1974). Mid-years 70, llegó a ocupar el tercer puesto en número de registros anuales en el AKC, going from about 4.000 puppies per year to more than 60.000. However, esta moda fue efímera, and the popularity of Setter gradually declined from the second half of the decade of 1970. Today, is more likely to find the Setter around the post 75 (of something less than 200) en cuanto al número de registros anuales en el AKC. Keep descending, since at the dawn of the XXI century it was around the position 60.

Also in France, the Irish Setter se hizo increíblemente popular en los años 70. Si a principios de la década ya había más de 600 inscripciones anuales en el Libro de Orígenes Franceses (LOF), este número se disparó sin cesar hasta acercarse a las 2.400 (four times more) in 1978. The reverse movement occurred in the following ten years, to the point of ending the decade of 1980 at around 700 u 800 annual births. Next, el número se estabilizó en torno a los 600 per year throughout the decades of 1990 and 2000, and then began to decline again in the decade of 2010, at around 500 births per year.

El reciente descenso del interés por la raza también se observa en otros países, like Britain. For example, el número de inscripciones anuales en el Kennel Club ronda los 700, while in early 2010 approached the 1.000.

Physical characteristics

The Puts irelandes is an active hunting dog, spirited and noble-looking, with a balanced and elegant constitution. These medium-sized dogs are distinguished by their rich mahogany red coat and fine, silky fur that extends over the ears, tail and chest. In general, it's a beautiful blend of refinement and robustness.

It is built around a deep chest that drops almost to elbow level and has a long, flat back., slightly sloping from withers to hindquarters, sin una caída exagerada. It is prolonged with a long, tapered tail, usually worn straight or even slightly curved up. Its hind legs are powerful and well developed, although its lower part is finer from the hock to the sole. They give him a good stride. The front legs are thinner, with straight and nervous forearms. The front joints are well bent, but not twisted in or out.

The head rests on a strong neck, although not very thick and slightly arched, that fits harmoniously between the shoulders. The skull is oval seen from above. The muzzle is moderately long and square, con las mandíbulas inferior y superior de longitud casi igual. The nose is always dark, black or chocolate, and the nostrils are wide open. The ears are placed behind the skull, slightly below eye level. They are thin and long, almost enough to touch the front of the muzzle when held taut. They hang with a sharp crease across the head. The eyes are almendrados, de tamaño medio y bastante distantes entre sí. They are hazelnut to dark brown in color and have a soft but alert expression.

The coat of the Irish Setter it is composed of an undercoat and a short topcoat on the top of the head and front legs, así como en las puntas de las orejas. It is moderately long on the rest of the body and has long fringes on the ears., on the back of the legs and thighs and on the belly. Their feet have a good density of hair between the toes, like feathers. It also, despite its length, the coat is smooth and soft, with a shiny appearance.

Its color is one of the distinctive features of the breed. They are mahogany or dark brown, no trace of black. Algunos individuos tienen un toque de blanco en el pecho o una fina línea blanca en la parte superior del cráneo, but this is not particularly desirable.

Last, sexual dimorphism is only moderately pronounced in this breed: males are generally of 3 to 5 centímetros más altos, but they are not, for example, significantly more massive. On the other hand, puede haber diferencias físicas reales en función del fin para el que se críe el animal. For example, los individuos de las líneas de exhibición suelen ser más robustos y grandes que los destinados a la caza o a la compañía, and their fur is also thicker and denser.

Character and skills

He gets along wonderfully with children, cuya energía y entusiasmo concuerdan perfectamente con su propio carácter. He especially enjoys play sessions with his humans and finds them ideal companions. However, hay que tener cuidado cuando está en compañía de niños muy pequeños, as it can be jerky in its movements and can involuntarily push or even knock them down. In any case, a dog should never be left alone with a young child without adult supervision, and this applies to all races.

The Irish Red Setter generally not lacking in enthusiasm or curiosity. This curiosity - sometimes combined with his hunting instincts- means, However, que se distrae fácilmente y puede ser difícil mantener su atención. If we add to this that he is sometimes stubborn, it's easy to understand that your education can be a bit complicated at times. ¡Y la combinación de estos dos rasgos puede hacer que el aprendizaje sea un poco complicado a veces! It also has a great ability to nibble everything in its reach.. Los juguetes de adiestramiento y masticables para perros deberían satisfacer este impulso, but at the beginning of learning, some objects can be destroyed.

In any case, el impulso del perro es una característica que se conserva durante mucho tiempo, since it takes much longer than other races to reach a certain psychological maturity. For some people, Living with a puppy-minded dog at five can be challenging, but others love it. In any case, maintains a strong love for life into old age, and some dogs never settle.

In fact, the Irish Setter tiene mucha energía de sobra: originally bred for hunting, sigue siendo muy activo y necesita gastar su energía en paseos diarios y poder correr sin obstáculos. Entre una hora y una hora y media de ejercicio al día es lo mínimo para mantenerle en buena salud física y mental, and simple walks on a leash in the neighborhood are not enough for it to develop: you need a place away from traffic where you can run freely and safely. It is an excellent companion for those who want to go running with their pet, and is also happy to accompany bike rides.

Outings may also include time to swim, since the Irish Red Setter it is a water-loving breed. Swimming is also a good way for me to exercise.

The same goes for dog sports, que le permiten movilizar tanto sus capacidades físicas como mentales. The agility, obedience, crawling and rallying are disciplines that are perfectly suited to him and that he does not stop approaching with his usual enthusiasm.

In any case, es necesario un amo activo para mantenerlo en buena forma física y mental: given your daily need for exercise, the lifestyle of elderly or sedentary people is not at all suitable for him.

Siempre que tenga suficiente compañía y oportunidades de hacer ejercicio, he is very nice to live with and deserves his reputation in this regard.

No wonder, given your level of activity, the Irish Setter not suitable for apartment living. Una casa con un gran jardín vallado es un entorno de vida mucho más ideal, but a fence is essential to prevent it from taking off. Like any self-respecting hunting dog, has a hard time restraining himself if he picks up interesting smells. In any case, aunque el jardín sea lo suficientemente grande como para que pueda corretear, it's not a question of leaving it alone for a long time, because he needs to integrate into his family and interact with humans. Le resulta difícil tolerar la soledad y pronto sufre de ansiedad por separación. La combinación de falta de compañía y demasiada energía puede pasarle factura, since it can lead to damage, plus other possible behavior problems (excessive barking to get attention, etc.).

Sharing a home with another species or with a representative of another species can be a smart way to avoid loneliness. Is able to get along with a cat or rodent once it has been raised and, Therefore, considers you a full member of your family. On the other hand, it is better to avoid living with birds, who are your favorite prey: su instinto de caza tendría todas las posibilidades de despertarse en algún momento y acabar bruscamente con la experiencia. Obviously, el problema es especialmente acusado en el caso de los individuos procedentes de líneas de caza, whose instinct is the most advanced.

His sociability is not limited to family members, both animals and humans. In fact, le encanta la compañía de estos últimos, and often welcomes strangers with enthusiasm: therefore, sería bastante ilusorio esperar utilizarlo como guardián. Having said that, Although it is not aggressive, can be protective if the situation calls for it. Will bark loudly when a stranger points their nose at him, which makes him at least a good watchdog.

Su cercanía al ser humano, his gentle nature and intelligence make him a very good therapy dog, whether it is made permanently available to a person or used by an association that regularly intervenes in different institutions. In effect, can do wonders in accompanying patients who need emotional support.


The Irish Red Setter not only is he smart and lively, He is also very cooperative in his education because he likes to work and make his masters happy.. However, keep in mind that it retains an exuberant personality for a long time, como si fuera todavía un joven cachorro, including a healthy dose of curiosity. This makes them easily distracted during sessions., y a veces puede ser difícil conseguir su atención, or keep it for more than a few minutes. Therefore, patience and a sense of humor are the keywords in the training of a Irish Setter, since he deserves his reputation for stubbornness, even stubborn at times. It is important to stay calm whatever happens, and act positive and kind.

In any case, things are easier because you really want to learn and you love challenges. Así que el reto es esencialmente mantenerlo centrado. The best way to do it is through play, with rewards and accolades. His very playful temperament means that he can resist if what is offered does not seem fun to him. Changing activities and rewards regularly can keep your interest and stimulate you more effectively.

Since he loves to run and has a strong hunting instinct, teaching your dog to hunt should be a high priority in your training program, What, as with any race, should start immediately. In more general terms, although in general it is full of good intentions, must learn as soon as possible to be obedient, at the risk of unleashing their tendency to be independent and stubborn.

Begin education of Irish Red Setter at a young age also helps to avoid boredom, ya que necesita muchos estímulos para ser feliz. At eight weeks, is already capable of assimilating many things.

Regarding home training, not usually a source of major problems, although even 4 months the puppy may have difficulty controlling his bladder: if you live inside, it is therefore essential to take it outside regularly.

Like any dog, your socialization also benefits from being started without delay, and it goes much better since it is sociable by nature. Offer you many opportunities to meet all kinds of humans, companions and other animals, pero también de enfrentarse a diferentes ambientes y estímulos (noises, sounds, smells…) it is the best way to make him a perfectly balanced and very pleasant companion.

It also, especially likes to chew and nibble what is within reach. Therefore, it is necessary not only to keep your precious belongings away, but above all to teach him to vent in a way acceptable to both him and his master: diverting their attention every time they start to chew or nibble on inappropriate things is a good way to gradually target this character trait.


The Irish Setter it is a generally robust and healthy breed, and their representatives rarely have major health problems.

They are also relatively heat tolerant and, by its origin, también se aclimatan bien al frío y la humedad razonables. However, extreme temperatures are not really for him. Of course, must be able to take shelter in case of heat wave, but you should also be able to sleep in a heated place if the temperatures are below freezing.

The main diseases to which the breed is exposed are :

  • The dilation-torsion stomach, which mainly affects large breeds of dogs and is fatal if the vet does not intervene quickly;
  • The Hip Dysplasia, que también es común en los perros grandes y puede ser hereditaria. It occurs when the thigh bone does not fit well in the hip joint and can cause difficulties in walking or running. Los casos graves suelen corregirse mediante cirugía;
  • Osteocondrosis (in osteochondritis), trastorno de osificación que afecta al cartílago de las articulaciones y provoca cojera. Esta enfermedad es aún poco conocida, but it is suspected of having hereditary causes. It usually manifests itself in the animal's growth period and affects males more frequently than females.;
  • The osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that mainly affects older animals and causes an increasingly pronounced and painful limp;
  • Epilepsy, which is similar to what is also seen in humans and leads to often impressive seizures. However, there are various treatments that allow people with epilepsy to lead almost perfectly normal lives;
  • The Hypothyroidism, un trastorno hormonal que puede presentar muchos síntomas diferentes (weight gain, Dry Skin, hair loss…). It is usually treated with medications;
  • The von Willebrand disease, un trastorno de la coagulación de origen hereditario que puede provocar la presencia de sangre en las heces o hemorragias en las encías o la nariz. There is no known cure for this disease, pero es posible proporcionar cuidados para aliviar los síntomas;
  • Insufficient adhesion of the leukocyte, a serious hereditary disease peculiar to the breed. Conduce desde una edad muy temprana a diversas y graves infecciones bacterianas y víricas porque los glóbulos blancos son incapaces de atacarlas. It is linked to a recessive gene, which means that an individual can be a carrier of it (and pass it on to their descendants) unaffected;
  • The progressive retinal atrophy, an incurable hereditary disease that corresponds to a slow deterioration of the retina. Produces progressive loss of vision, primero por la noche y luego durante el día;
  • The entropion, a sometimes inherited eye disorder in which the eyelid rolls inward, irritating the eyeball. El problema puede tratarse con cirugía;
  • The otitis, una infección del oído favorecida por la forma caída de las orejas.

Although the list of diseases the breed is predisposed to can be terrifying, do not forget that their representatives usually spend most of their lives in good health. A study conducted in 2004 by the British Kennel Club and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association revealed that cancer was responsible for the 27% of deaths and that old age was the second leading cause of death, with a 22% of the cases. In other words, estas dos causas representan por sí solas una de cada dos muertes, well ahead of cardiac problems (10% of the cases) and gastrointestinal disorders (8% of the cases).

However, since many of the conditions to which the breed is predisposed are or may be inherited, adopting a serious breeder of the Setters irlandes it is crucial to obtain an animal that is not only correctly socialized, but also and above all healthy, and that it probably still is. Therefore, must be able to present the results of genetic tests performed to parents or offspring to rule out any transmission of inherited diseases. You must also present a certificate from a veterinarian attesting that the dog is in good health, así como la cartilla sanitaria o de vacunación del perro, in particular to confirm that you have received all necessary vaccinations.

Once the puppy has moved to its new home, care must be taken to respect his growth and not force him to do too many things too soon. Therefore, any particularly strenuous or prolonged activity should be avoided until the puppy's skeleton has reached full maturity, what occurs in this breed at approximately two years of age. Otherwise, you run the risk not only of injury, but also to suffer consequences for life, that may be related to malformations, for example. The risk is all the greater as the Irish Setter is predisposed to various joint problems.

It also, the adoption of a healthy dog ​​should not do without regular visits to the vet, At least once a year, to allow early detection of a potential problem, before it ends up acquiring very serious proportions. It is also an opportunity to carry out any necessary vaccine recalls..

Always in the field of prevention, it is the owner's responsibility to ensure that their animal's parasitic protection remains active at all times and, for it, renew treatments whenever necessary.

Life expectancy

13 years


El cuidado del Irish Red Setter takes time and effort. In fact, its beautiful long, silky coat needs to be brushed once or twice a week to stay shiny and knot-free. Este cepillado regular también estimula los folículos que provocan el crecimiento del pelo, making the coat healthier. During the molting period, in spring and autumn, hair loss is much greater, so daily brushing is recommended to help remove dead hairs.

Unless, Of course, that the Irish Setter don't need more than two baths a year, unless, Of course, that has gotten especially dirty. Hay que tener cuidado de utilizar siempre un champú específicamente diseñado para caninos, as there is a risk that the skin will dry out due to a product that is too aggressive. In fact, the pH of dog's skin is not the same as that of human skin.

Sus orejas caídas también requieren un mantenimiento regular, as they are a breeding ground for infections. Therefore, should be checked weekly and cleaned with a slightly damp cloth to avoid accumulation of dirt and moisture. The same should be done after every prolonged time outdoors, for example if it is used to hunt. After bathing or soaking outdoors, también es útil secarlos, again to prevent moisture build-up.

Your eyes should also be carefully examined and cleaned every week., again to prevent dirt from getting into them.

Coat grooming sessions also offer the opportunity to care for your dog's teeth by brushing them with dog toothpaste.. This helps prevent tartar buildup and, Therefore, reduce the risk of bad breath and, above all, of oral diseases. It is best to avoid doing it less than once a week, and the ideal is to take care of it regularly.

Given your level of activity, this dog's claws tend to wear out naturally, so no need to cut them manually. However, es mejor comprobarlo cada mes para asegurarse de que es así. In any case, if you hear them rubbing against the ground when walking on smooth ground, means that they have become too long. Beyond being then prevented from walking, they can break and potentially injure you.

Whether the fur, the ears, the eyes, teeth or claws, maintaining a Irish Red Setter should not be done randomly, at the risk of hurting or even injuring you. The first time, una visita a una peluquería canina profesional o a un veterinario puede ser una excelente manera de aprender los gestos correctos de un profesional.

In any case, no reason to wait to start: Familiarizing your dog with these sessions from a young age is the best way for him to cooperate when he needs to be handled, and you can even make maintenance sessions moments of shared complicity.

Las manipulaciones también son útiles cuando regresa de un largo periodo en la naturaleza, since then it is necessary to carefully examine their fur, legs and ears to detect the possible presence of infections or small wounds, but also parasites, thorns, skewers, etc.


The Irish Setter fue originalmente diseñado y desarrollado para acompañar a los cazadores en la búsqueda de aves de caza. It was - and still is- especially appreciated for its qualities as a showing dog: It is excellent for locating game and positioning itself in a sample position so that the hunter knows where the bird is.

His grace, la belleza de su porte y su pelaje rojizo-acajú también le hicieron popular en las exposiciones caninas ya en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX.

Todavía hoy son reconocidos y apreciados por estos dos usos, pero también se han ganado los corazones como perros de compañía afectuosos, smart and endearing. They are wonderfully suited to family life so owners can give them all the exercise they need, a task that can be delegated, at least in part, In the kids, with those who love to play.

Dog sports are another great way for him to exercise: excels in agility competitions, obedience and tracking, for example.

Last, su cercanía a los humanos, his sensitivity and sweetness explain why he is also found as a therapy dog, for example in schools, hospitals and nursing homes.

On the other hand, the fact that it lacks all aggressiveness, disfrute tanto de la compañía de los humanos y sea generalmente muy acogedor con los extraños implica que no puede asumir el papel de guardián. On the other hand, it is an excellent warning dog, since it does not stop warning the arrival of a stranger.


The popularity of the Irish Red Setter hace que no sea difícil encontrarlo, as many breeders can be found both on European and North American soil.

The price of a puppy usually ranges from 500 and 1000 EUR. The average is slightly less than 800 EUR, no significant differences between males and females.

whatever the country, el precio varía necesariamente en función de la reputación y el prestigio del criadero del que procede, of his lineage, as well as its intrinsic characteristics, and in particular of its greater or lesser conformity with the standard. This explains why there can be significant price differences between individuals of the same litter.
