ABOUT GORDON SETTERS

Gordons were initially bred as for hunting gamebirds – such as grouse, partridge and quail. Many Gordons are still worked today, however, these dogs can make good companion dogs, take part in obedience and agility, and perform elegantly in the showring.

Gordon Setters, also known as “black and tans” have a coal-black coat with distinctive markings of a rich chesnut colour on their paws and lower legs, vents, throat, and muzzles, as well as one spot above each eye and two spots on their chest. A Gordon’s coat should be straight, with long and silky feathering on the chest, legs and tail.

Gordons are the heaviest of the setter breeds. Fully grown Gordons stand approximately 26 inches to the withers and weigh around 4-5 stone. A Gordon should be a stylish dog, with galloping lines. For more information on the breed standard visit the Gordon Setter Association.

Gordons are capable of adapting to a variety of living situations, including getting on well with children. They need plenty of daily exercise to maintain physical and mental condition. A safe, fenced area for them to run and play in is essential.


OUR GORDONS
