These English Setter Calendars feature one of the oldest breeds of gun dogs and has been a treasured bird retriever for the last four hundred years, at least. English Setters are a large, graceful dog with a lively sprit who will have unconditional devotion to their whole family. They have beautiful flowing coats with a glossy, aristocratic touch. Their bodies are leanly muscled, all white and with heavy ticking. They have dark brown eyes, long feathering fur and a long tail to add to their elegance. Newborn puppies are born white and after the first week begin to change in color. English Setters thrive on human companionship or with other dogs. They are very loyal, affectionate and slightly self-willed. They are good at "setting" when they see their prey. English Setters are good with children and can adapt to single family or kennel living. This breed needs a lot of exercise, but are mild and calm inside. They are active dogs, however, and the field version of the English Setter is slightly more active than the show version. English Setters are good at what they do, and love the outdoors. They come in two varieties: show dogs and field dogs. The show dogs are about 25% larger than the field dog, carries the tail lower and has a more square muzzle.
