Are Gordon setters high energy?

My wife and I have a male Gordon Setter, and the Gordon Setter bit my son, so we handed him over to some friends (the Gordon Setter is not my son). Now that my son is older, we’re looking for another Gordon Setter, one with less energy. I must admit I don’t know much about Gordon Setter. I’ve been doing some research, and I’m leaning toward a Lehman-type setter right now. Gordon setters are with high energy and all we need to do is training them.

I also looked at the Nearby New York Gordon Setter, but the price of puppies was a little high. (I didn’t rule them out, because you get what you pay for) If someone knows a similar breeder, can you post it? All I want is a Gordon Setter that will be good at home and in the grouse. My wife wants me to be emotionally involved. Some clarification may be needed here. By low energy, do you mean off-task behavior (less excitement) or a reduction in the drive and movement of prey, which makes the dog hunt slower and take up less land? I’m not trying to start an argument between these two dogs. I don’t know what you’re asking.


Superpowers and prey drive are two separate attributes of the Gordon Setter.

Although I am a firm believer in buying the best breeding because $300 or even $400 extra puppies equals $30/ year, the price is not always the same as better performance. A particular breed or breed usually brings in a few hundred dollars more than the breed or breed That I use to evaluate the relative abilities of a Gordon Setter or breed that is superior in every respect. They are idiots for two or three years, but after that, they tend to settle down in the house on a routine basis. If you want a quiet Gordon Setter, to begin with, I would say that any kind of Gordon Setter is out of the question. If you want to start with a little Gordon Setter, accept the fact that it takes daily exercise and several seasons to be a good citizen at home. It doesn’t solve your problem. I can tell you, we have six Gordon-setters, and they all have conifers on the male side. Gordon Setter is kind, loving, calm, and a great hunter. They are also beautiful dogs – after all, you have to watch them for the other nine months of the year.
