The Breed Standard for the modern Irish Setter was first drawn up by the Dublin Irish Red Setters Club and was approved in 1886.Though this standard has changed it is largely the same as the original. The Irish Red Setter was bred for hunting. The Setter as the name suggests points or sets on game birds .They are a wide range tireless hunter and suit fields and wet or dry moorland terrain. They have an excellent sense of smell and use it to locate game birds and mark the position. The Irish Red setter will then hold a pointing position, indicating the direction in which the bird lies hidden. The Irish red setter is very good with children and other dogs but care should be taken with small children and small pets as they are very active animals and are a hunting breed. They do make excellent pets and companions
