English is the oldest and characteristic of the four setter races that you/they feel when they find a piece (the other ones are the Irishman, (call commonly red Setter), the Gordon and the red and white Irishman). One has known the English Setter from the XIV century, but the name that more he/she associates to him it is that of Edward Laverack (1815-1877) whose pedigrees of the Setter go back at 1860. It was registered by the British Canine Society in 1873. Laverack wrote that” this race is not more than an improved Spaniel”, and without place to doubts descends of Spaniels. It was Laverack, also who, through the upbringing, it developed the lineage on which the standard of the current English Setter was founded. Another breeder, Mr. R. L. Purcelí Llewellin, I helped to settle down to the English Setter in America. Mr. Llewellin bought some of the best dogs in Mr. Laverack and it crossed them with new blood in the north of England. it introduced the lineages or stocks of Mr. Slatter and sir Vincent Corbet that starting from then it became well-known as the stock of Duke-Kate-Rhoebes. Their Setters found the fame in U.S and Canada, where they demonstrated to be unbeatable in the field tests and they established this line firmly in USA Character and cares
Of a surprising, loyal and affectionate beauty, the English Setter combines the paper of company animal admirably with that of hunter's dog. It is good with the children, he/she can live like one more than the family, or in an external kennel, and he/she only needs a daily brushing with a hard brush and the use of a metallic comb. It is necessary to remove him the hair in undue places before an exhibition. As most of the hunt dogs, the English Setter needs a good quantity of exercise and it is not adapted for the life in the city, although many seem to survive in an urban atmosphere.
