The Gordon Setter is a purebred dog known to be part of the sporting group. They’re affectionate, bold, and confident dogs who will make a great family companion dog. If you’re interested in adding this doggo to your family, then you can learn more about Gordon Setter puppies below.

Where To Get Gordon Setter Puppies

You’ll be able to find this pooch where ever you can adopt dogs. For example, you can try your local animal shelter or rescue organization. You might not find a purebred Gordon Setter, but you could get a mixed breed with this dog’s genes. In addition, you may get an adult or senior dog. Kina59…

Regardless, you can save a dog’s life and still have a long, happy time with it. However, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy, you can research reputable breeders. For example, a good breeder will do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Want to meet you in person and allow you to meet the dogs in person
  • Won’t let the puppies leave their mother until they’re at least eight weeks of age
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on all their vaccinations
  • Be able to answer any questions you have about the process, breeder, breed, puppies, and parents

In addition, the breeder should have health documents for you to take home. First, they’ll health screen the parents before breeding them. Then, after the litter is born, they’ll make sure the puppies are health screened and genetically tested.

If a breeder doesn’t do anything of the above, they could be a puppy mill or backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided because they’re more interested in profit from the dogs rather than finding them good homes.

The Cost

Gordon Setters go for between $200 and $2,000. The price varies, depending on where you get the dog from, their health, age, and the linage. Also, if they’re currently high in demand, the cost will increase.

Appearance

Females are usually smaller than males. For instance, females can stand between 23 and 26 inches tall and weigh between 45 to 70 pounds. On the other hand, males can stand 24 to 27 inches tall and weigh between 55 to 80 pounds. In addition, they have a medium double coat that’s typically black and tan. However, they can sometimes be red or tan.

Temperament

Gordon Setters puppies will grow into excellent family dogs. For example, they’re affectionate with their family members and loyal to them. They’re good when it comes to young children, meeting other dogs, and meeting new people. However, it might take them some time to warm up to them.

Luckily, they’re easy to socialize and train. Gordon Setters are good watchdogs and will protect their humans and territory, but they’re not aggressive or dangerous. They’ll never attack people. They’ll bark to alert you when someone or something is near, but that’s about it. Sometimes, they’ll bark to get your attention as well.

Also, the Gordon Setter has high energy levels. They’ll require a lot of physical activity every day. For instance, they’ll do better living in a bigger home with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment. Remember, this doggo is part of the sporting group. So, they’ll love outdoor activities such as hiking, jogging, long walks, and canine sports such as agility.

Gordon Setter Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Be sure to bring your puppy to the vet frequently for the first year. Together, you and the vet can decide on the best care for your new furry friend. Also, you can track how they’re growing and developing. After the first year, you can bring them to the vet once a year for an annual check-up.

Unfortunately, like all dogs, Gordon Setters are prone to certain health conditions. For example, they can get the following health issues:

With proper care, this doggo has an average lifespan of about 12 to 13 years.

Diet

Your Gordon Setter can eat anything as long as it’s high-quality for them. You can discuss the best dieting options for your pooch with the vet. Of course, every dog is different, so you’ll want to feed them the best. Also, this doggo might do well on a diet that’s rich in protein since they love to be active.

You can choose high-quality commercial dog food in kibble or canned wet food form. Alternatively, you can make homemade dog food recipes that cater to your furry friend’s dietary needs.

Grooming

If you’re looking at Gordon Setter puppies, be sure you’re ready for the grooming commitment they need. This doggo is not a hypoallergenic breed. They shed moderately enough that you’ll want to brush their fur weekly to keep the loose hairs under control. However, you’ll only need to bring them to the grooming salon once every couple of months.

On the other hand, Gordon Setters drool a lot. So, in addition to trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears, you’ll also want to wash their face frequently. Otherwise, it could get infected.
