he loves children. Because of that he is very good for families. He
watches and barks but does not bite. He is very agile and full of
energy, and he needs a stable hand and patience. If you want the setter
to be a family dog and you do not want to hunt with it, you will need a
lot of time and energy. The dog needs long walks, you can jog with him,
swim or practice some new sports as canicross, bikejorging, skijorging,
dogtrekking or other. You can train it at kynological areas, for
example for defense or for special purposes (medical and so on).
The dog can be trained for canistherapy or as a partner for old people.

it to. It hates to be bored or alone. If the setter has everything it
needs, it will be grateful and faithful!

with the other dogs. Nowadays the setter is used to be a universal
worker. Naturally he likes to work in the special group of the English
