English Setter dog breed information
Bred as a hunting dog, something they still are used to this day, the English Setter dog breed has a unique reason behind the name. These dogs have a habit of setting or crouching low when they discover their target, which is used by the hunters as the signal to capture the birds. This is a practice that has gone out of fashion, but the name has stuck around for centuries. And while English Setter dogs are still used as hunting companions, they have also become part of the human family and can be found in many households.
