If you are thinking of adding an English Setter to your home, then you have come to the right place to learn more about this wonderful breed. If you already own an English Setter, then congratulations! You must be a very special person to have one of these great dogs in your life. English Setters are something of a well-kept secret with just a little over 100 AKC litters registered each year.
The English Setter Association of America has been in existence for almost 70 years as the parent club of AKC English Setters in the United States. Our job is to protect and conserve the breed, as well as to look to its future. We do this by investing in health and genetic testing; having members sign a Code of Ethics; encouraging good breeding practices, holding events such as a National specialty, a National field trial, obedience, agility, hunting, rally, and other activities with our dogs; dedicating ourselves to English Setter rescue; and offering seminars and other educational opportunities for members.
As someone interested in the breed, we invite you to get to know us. Please browse through our web site. Look at the photos of our members and their dogs. Talk to some of our members. Attend some of our events in your area. We would be very happy if you would like to join us and become a member.
