Gordon Setters

History suggests the existence of black and tan setters as far back as the 16th century in Scotland and England.

The Duke of Gordon is credited with establishing the breed with its present characteristics in the 1820’s.

Gordons were initially bred as bird dogs, for hunting birds like pheasant and quail.  Although the hunting instinct remains strong in the breed, Gordons are equally at home as companion dogs, obedience and agility competitors, and show dogs.

Gordon Setters are alert and lively, pleasant and exceedingly loyal.  They tend to be devoted to members of their household, but are not overly friendly to strangers.  As a general rule, Gordons tend to tolerate attention from people they do not know rather than seeking such attention.

Gordons are capable of adapting to a variety of living situations, as long as they are assured of the love of their masters.  They do, however, need plenty of daily exercise to maintain peak physical and mental condition.
