German Shepherd Dog

When it comes time to choose a dog, individuals should always devote a good amount of time researching the breeds they are considering. This keeps individuals from not only choosing the wrong type of dog, but also ensures the dog itself is not moved from home to home. Those who decide to opt for a Setter breed will find themselves needing to choose between the Gordon, Irish or English Setter. When the decision is made to go with the English Setter, potential owners must then decide between a field Setter or a bench Setter. For those who do not do their research, this can be a perplexing question.

Bench Setters, also referred to as Lavaracks, are for individuals looking at the possibility of having an English Setter as a show dog. Because they are registered with the American Kennel Club, this type of English Setter should have all the breed standards; this includes a larger build and a longer coat than field Setters. A bench Setter will require a good amount of attention compared to the field setter. Their long coats will require daily grooming to stay tangle free. Finding a bench Setter can also be somewhat difficult. While there can be up to fifteen thousand field setters registered every year, the number of officially recognized bench Setters only amounts to less than five hundred.

Field setters are also referred to as Llewellins. They are commonly used for hunting and are registered with the Field Dog Stud Book. A field Setter features a somewhat smaller stature than the bench type and to be more efficient when out hunting, field Setters come with lighter coats and smaller flews. Their coats also tend to have less spotting and although they still require some grooming, they do not require daily sessions. It is not uncommon to find breeders who sell their field Setters primarily for hunting and will even go as far to begin training the pup almost from birth.

Regardless of which type of Setter is chosen, one can be sure that they are getting a sweet tempered and mellow companion. Although each type has its devotees, the subtle differences in physical characteristics make no difference in the breed's character. They are merely a matter of preference for those making a decision between the two. Before making a final choice, it is always a good idea to talk with those who own a field Setter or bench Setter to get an honest point of view on owning such an animal. One can also get good tips and pointers on finding reputable breeders using quality bloodlines. To get the best of dispositions with an English Setter, potential owners should refrain from buying from pet stores or amateur breeders.
