English Setter questions


ccarlson

Recommended Posts

I have a 7 year old English setter male that I've really enjoyed hunting with and is a great family dog. I'm looking at starting the process of getting another one in a couple years but want to get some research done during that time. My current setter has a steel plate in his hip after getting hit by a car so I know that he may not get as long of a hunting career as I would like.

Is there anybody on this site that may be more familiar with the different types or strains of english setters? Are there any books that have more info on this? I've been told that there are different strains or types of E. setters but want more info on this.

I'm not sure what strain mine is but he has a larger build, very heavy coat and is a real work horse when in the field. Hunts hard and covers a lot of ground. Good nose and points well. He does not retrieve naturally though and has not responded well to training to retrieve. He will catch and stop a shot bird but will not bring it back. He will wade in the water but will not swim.

In the next dog, I'm looking for a large build, lighter coat a more methodical, slightly slower method of hunting (I do both grouse and pheasant) and of course better retrieving instincts, even in deeper water if necessary.

Any info would be appreciated.

I would make sure first and foremost you get your setter from a reputable breeder. I have a Setter from Ryman/Old Hemlock lines. I would highly recommend a setter of that linage for hunting grouse and pheasant. They are larger setters, very methodical one man dogs. Awesome noses as well. This is my second setter and they are great hunting dogs. I bought mine from Setters West in Montana. She wasn't cheap, but worth every penny I spent. If you do a search for Setters West you can find their web page. I don't think I can post it on this site.

I went through the same type of thing as you a few years back and I would agree with Harmonica Bear search out a reputable breeder.You may want to pick up a
copy of The Pointing Dog Journal or a magazine like Gun Dog Also the if you look on the internet for bird Dog and retreiver news you will find links to various breeders
I currently have one setter from (larger)Ryman lines and one from Mahoney Kennels out of Washinton State he is a smaller dog and has preformed very well for me.I will go back to him for another dog when the time comes.I know that alot of people think that the smaller dogs are larger ranging but thats not the case with this one.My brother also has a smaller setter from Burnt Creek Setters in North Dakota and range has not been an issue with his either.Talk to the breeders about what qualitys you desire in a dog.And if you do not have the time to devote to training you may want to consider a started dog.If you want drop me a e-mail and I will give you a call.

I picked up my dog at in New England ND. Brittney is now 18 months old and I dont think I could have gotten a better dog, both house and field.

Brittney was easy to train and when hunting she is all business, with one thing only on her mind. Birds.

Brittney is out of the Havelock line.

If you want to research this line start with the breeder at esetter.com

good luck with your search

      Would you recommend the link I got from the Nigerian Prince in my email about the 2.3 million dollars he wants to send me after I give him my bank account info for direct deposit or no?

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.

      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
