Hi Kara,
I just wanted to get in touch with you and let you know that it’s been about 2 years since we purchased a bed from you for our English Setter Rupert. Since then we have also added a French Bulldog to our family and the bed is still going strong and cleans up like new with just a run through the washing machine. We did consider getting a small separate one for Lulu (our Frenchie) but she is glued to Rupert’s hip and will only sleep when she’s snuggled up right beside him so we will wait a while and eventually replace the big one for both of them. Anyway they both adore the bed so I thought I would send you some recent pics of them on it.

Learn more about the English Setter:

  • The English Setter is a medium size breed of dog.
  • It is part of the Setter family, which includes the red Irish Setters, Irish Red and White Setters, and black-and-tan Gordon Setters.
  • The mainly white body coat is of medium length with long silky fringes on the back of the legs, under the belly and on the tail. The coat features flecks of colour, and the different colour varieties are referred to as belton.
  • A gentle but at times strong-willed, mischievous gun dog, bred for a mix of endurance and athleticism, it is used to hunt for game such as quail, pheasant, and grouse. When working, the dog will hunt methodically seeking the airborne scent of its prey.
  • It is sometimes referred to as the Laverack or Llewellin Setter as these were famous strains of the breed during the major development period in the 19th-century.
  • Those from hunting stock are generally of a finer build and with less coat than those bred for show exhibition.
  • Generally reasonably healthy, they have an average life span of 11 to 12 years. The Kennel Club advise UK breeders to screen for hip dysplasia.
