Do Setters shed?

Answered by Willian Lymon

Irish Setters do shed, but they are considered to be moderate shedders. This means that they will shed some hair, especially during shedding seasons, but it shouldn’t be excessive.

In terms of grooming, Irish Setters do require regular grooming to keep their long, silky coats looking their best. Daily or every other day grooming is recommended to prevent their hair from becoming tangled or matted. This involves brushing their coat thoroughly to remove any loose hair and prevent it from getting tangled. It’s also important to check their ears regularly and clean them if necessary, as Irish Setters are prone to ear infections.

When it comes to maturing, Irish Setters are known to have a slower maturation process compared to some other breeds. This means that they may take longer to reach their full adult size and develop their full coat. It’s important to be patient and provide them with proper nutrition and care during this time to support their growth and development.

Irish Setters are beautiful dogs with their long, flowing coats, but they do require regular grooming to keep their coats in good condition. While they may shed some hair, it is not excessive, and with proper care, you can minimize the amount of hair in your house.
