Irish Red and White Setters may be less well known than their all red cousins, but these dogs are just as loveable and loyal. This dog was born to run, so activities for Irish Red and White Setters must include lots of exercise to keep them happy. They were originally bred to hunt and do well-finding birds and other small game in wooded and marshy areas. Hiking trails and running along open land should be part of their weekly routine. These dogs are excellent family pets and love being part of the family. They are often rambunctious as puppies so they should be supervised with younger children.
