Llewellin Setter question

Postby deerhost » Sat Dec 05, 2015 4:36 pm

Hi everyone. I've been a life long beagles, I've had hunting beagles for the last twenty year and have breed and field trailed them. A few years back I picked up my first bird dog, a Brittany. It has been a blast. All my dogs live out doors in a kennel. I would like to add a llewellin setter to my kennel. I've been doing some research on the breed and I keep reading that they are not good kennel dogs due to excessive barking when left out doors. I would like to get some feed back on this trait. My beagles are silent in the kennel partly due to selective breeding. I do not breed happy dogs no matter how good they are in the field. My Brittany is also pretty good about being outside. I have homes on either side of me and can not have a yappy dog that barks all day. If anyone has a setter outdoors can you share what they are like? Thanks Andre

Go and visit the kennel or breeder at there home and see there dogs in the kennel. My family owned Irish setters a long time ago but as a kid they only barked when someone come close to the property or if they where playing with another dog and got wound up. If you have a quiet kennel they should learn from example from the other dogs if not there is always bark collar!

The only one I know sleeps on the bed. But he is a great dog, very stylish and in the water uses his tail like a 10 horse.
