Irish Setters are simply BEAUTIFUL. Their rich chestnut or mahogany coats are silky soft and feather out at the legs, ears and tail. When striding beside you, the Irish Setter will hold their head high and will be the model of elegance. They are quite muscular dogs and shouldn't carry any excess weight.
Irish Setters are prone to bloat and as a result can quickly resemble something off Weight Watchers. It's best to only feed them small meals once or twice a day. The breeder should give you advice, and a diet sheet, regarding the feeding of your Irish Setter.
The Irish Setter's crowning glory is, of course, the chestnut coat. Daily brushing is essential to keep the feathers from tangling. Ears will need regular cleaning—as they are drop ears, very little air circulation is able to get inside the ear making it a breeding ground for bacteria and ear infection.
