|The original “black and fallow setter” that has
become known as the Gordon Setter is a styling
hunting dog, whose dignified and intelligent bearing
has attracted sporting dog aficionados, show-dog
enthusiasts and pet owners alike. Among the largest
of the gundog breeds, the Gordon Setter possesses
a bold, outgoing personality and a kind disposition
that distinguish him among pure-bred dogs. He is
known for his distinctive black and tan coat pattern
and his proudly carried head, offering the right owner
both brains and beauty and a bit of brawn too.
This new Special Limited Edition, written by sporting
dog authority, author and breeder Nona Kilgore
Bauer, offers a complete history of the breed from
the corridors of Gordon Castle in 18th-century
England to the homes, fields and show rings of the
United States. The author also discusses the breed’s
characteristics and breed standard, and provides her
expert advice on selecting a well-bred puppy,
rearing, house-training and obedience training.
In addition to chapters discussing everyday care,
feeding and home safety, the book also includes a
reliable, up-to-date chapter on preventive healthcare.
