An aristocratic bird dog known for his style, powerful movement and clown-like personality, the Irish Setter became popular in the 18th century throughout Ireland and the British Isles. This merry, friendly breed has a stable, outgoing temperament, making him a great family companion. The Irish Setter requires regular exercise, and his long, glossy, red coat must be groomed regularly.
