The overall shape, the symmetry of the body, the posture, and the effect of the steps are much more important than any single position. Defect: because which part is too exaggerated, causes the whole discordance.

English Setter Breed Daily Care

We should do a lot for pretty English Setters to keep them more pretty. English Setter care is very important. Since dogs have long coats, it's best to groom them daily. Many parts of the dog are trimmed, so trim them properly to give them a more energetic look. We should always pay attention to the dog's mood when taking a bath. Some dogs may be a little scared when taking a bath for the first time, which should be appropriately pacified.


When we feed English setters, it's best to make sure that the food they feed contains about 500 grams of meat per day. We also add the same amount of biscuits and vegetables to keep the dog's diet balanced. We should first cook and chop the meat in the food, then add an appropriate amount of water and mix it with cooked dry vegetable ingredients before feeding.

Periodontal disease can cause a number of problems, such as tooth loss, oronasal fistula, broken jaw, and various infections. Since the periodontal disease can cause a English Setter's immune system to weaken if it doesn't want to eat, the bacteria are more likely to spread and cause infection elsewhere. The bacteria infection to the nasal cavity may cause an oral and nasal fistula, and the mandible bone is too thin, resulting in mandible fracture. If the bacteria infects the eye, it can lead to blindness. Bacteria can also infect the heart, pancreas, kidneys, and other organs through the blood.

It is very important that we train our English Setters not to rummaging through trash cans and not to pick up and eat outside. The dog disorderly eat, is very easy to eat some toxic things, resulting in poisoning. In addition to poisoning, rummaging, and eating, also easily lead to gastrointestinal damage, long-term harm to the dog.

Owners should make sure the English Settersbeds are clean and tidy, and keep them warm in the winter. Put some old clothes in their nest that we don't wear anymore, but make sure the clothes are dry and don't get wet. Old clothes will leave a smell on the owner's body, and dogs will get familiar with the smell more quickly if they stay with the smell every day, as if the owner is with them all the time, which can make the dogs sleep more comfortably.
