Gordon Setter Information
The largest of the Setters, the Gordon weighs in at up to 80 pounds and stands 27 inches in the shoulder. The breed hails from Scotland and has a tough coat to withstand the tough climate. They’ve been used as hunting dogs for more than 200 years.
Bold and confident, the breed can be somewhat stubborn at times, but strong training and frequent exercise helps. At home they are sweet and affectionate with family members. Regular grooming is required to keep the dog’s long, black and tan coat from matting.
