Red & Whites in the Field
 

The Irish Red and White Setter is a striking dog in the field.  He should cover ground in a fluid manner and hunt with a powerful, elegant style.  The pearly white coat with vivid red patches that they are named for makes them easy to spot in most cover and at distance.  They are not as large as Gordon Setters, and of a more athletic build compared to their racy, full Red cousins and while similar in size to the English Setter, they very much have their own style.  They have less coat than the other Setters, and that coat tends to have a different texture, making them easier to groom after hunting.  And they hunt as they do everything else — with boundless joy and enthusiasm.

In the Field

An Irish Red and White Setter stands on point.  the near foreleg is pulled up in the classic point position.  The quarry is not visible, but the intensity of the dog leaves no doubt it is near.

When you look at a dog’s pedigree it tells you what he might be.  

When you look at a dog in the show ring it tells you what he seems to be.

When you take your dog to the field, he tells you who he really is.
