Whether you own or are contemplating owning this beautiful breed for showing, working, or for the pure pleasure of having an English Setter as part of your family, the breed's biddable temperament and ability to fit in to family life makes them a most beautiful canine companion. We hope the information contained in these pages will be helpful and informative.

The breed has minimal health issues but those to be looked out for are Hip Dysplasia and Inherited deafness. The ESAV has developed a Code of Practice - Breeding to which all members must adhere. Full details are on the Health page. Note: There are breeders of English Setters who are not members of the English Setter Association of Victoria, so it is the buyer's responsibility to ask if their breeding stock has been screened for HD and deafness, and to ask for proof of the results.

Find out more about this beautiful breed by reading though our pages.
