The AKC describes the Gordon Setter temperament as "alert, gay, interested, and
confident. He is fearless and willing, intelligent, and capable. He is loyal and affectionate,
and strong-minded enough to stand the rigors of training." Gordons are intensely loyal to
their owners; thrive in an attentive, loving environment; and are good family dogs. Puppies
and adult dogs can be quite boisterous, and although they are patient by nature, may not
be suitable for households with very young children. Gordons are sensitive and empathic,
eager to learn, and need firm but gentle handling. Early socialisation and obedience
training is important. They are known as great talkers. The breed is one of the slowest to
mature, not hitting prime until three years of age or more, and will show puppy-like
characteristics well into their older years.

Gordons were bred to run, and require 60 to 80 minutes of vigorous exercise daily. Young
dogs should not be over-exercised or begin agility training until they are at least 18
months old, to avoid joint problems later in life. Because of their hunting instincts,
Gordons should not be allowed to roam freely if unsupervised, as they are apt to wander
into a potentially dangerous traffic situation while following a scent.
Breed Specific Products
GORDON SETTER
The original “black and fallow setter” that has
become known as the Gordon Setter is a styling
hunting dog, whose dignified and intelligent bearing
has attracted sporting dog aficionados, show-dog
enthusiasts and pet owners alike. Among the largest
of the gundog breeds, the Gordon Setter possesses
a bold, outgoing personality and a kind disposition
that distinguish him among pure-bred dogs. He is
known for his distinctive black and tan coat pattern
and his proudly carried head, offering the right owner
both brains and beauty and a bit of brawn too.

This new Special Limited Edition, written by sporting
dog authority, author and breeder Nona Kilgore
Bauer, offers a complete history of the breed from
the corridors of Gordon Castle in 18th-century
England to the homes, fields and show rings of the
United States. The author also discusses the breed’s
characteristics and breed standard, and provides her
expert advice on selecting a well-bred puppy,
rearing, house-training and obedience training.

In addition to chapters discussing everyday care,
feeding and home safety, the book also includes a
reliable, up-to-date chapter on preventive healthcare.
