The Gordon Setter has a robust,
tall, slender structure, a massive head, and
fully developed lips. It is the only black
& tan setter. It is a tall, slender dog
with a lovely feathered coat. The head is
long, chiseled and massive, with a very pronounced
stop and a large-nostrilled black nose.
The long, slightly pointed ears
hang flat beside the head. The oval eyes are dark
brown. The well-feathered tail is thick at the root,
tapering to a fine point. The front legs should
be large-boned and straight.
The soft, glossy coat may be straight
or slightly wavy, with profuse feathering on the
legs, feet, underside, ears and tail. The tail feathering
should create a triangular silhouette. The color
should always be black with clearly differentiated
Dogs 24-27 inches (61-69 cm.);
Bitches 23-26 inches (58-66 cm.)
Dogs 55-80 pounds (25-36 kg.);
Bitches 45-70 pounds (20-32 kg.)
The Gordon Setter is devoted, loyal,
courageous, cheerful, affectionate, obedient, intelligent,
willing, polite, gentle and sensible. They are pleasant
companions that are excellent with children as well
as gifted hunters. Tends to be reserved with strangers.
It may become jealous of other pets, but is generally
good with them. Puppies may seem somewhat uncoordinated.
The Gordon Setter is not recommended
for apartment life. It is relatively inactive indoors
and does best with at least a large, safely fenced
yard where it can run free and roam around.
All setters need a daily long,
brisk walk or they will become restless and difficult
to manage. In addition, they will also enjoy running
free in the safety of a fenced yard. These dogs
often have minds of their own, so train early before
bad habits set in.
Training these dogs is certainly
not difficult, provided you take into account that
it can be stubborn on occasion. They call for a
handler who is both consistent and loving in approach.
This dog should be introduced to all situations
(people, animals and things) as a young pup to produce
a well-balanced dog.
Regular combing and brushing of
the soft, flat, medium-length coat and bathing /
dry shampooing when necessary are all that is required
to keep it in excellent condition. It is important
to check for burrs and tangles. The hair on the
bottom of the feet should be trimmed the nails clipped.
This average shedder needs extra care when shedding.
