I am just curious on everyones take on whether or not they believe the Irish Setter is being sent down the same unfortunate road of being split into two seperate "types" (ie. bench and field) and if so what can and should be done about it. Also, what are the opinions of the American vs Overseas bred dogs? In my own opinion I am seeing a much larger tendancy in the US to breed a flashy, racey show dog that has little or no instinct and that is moving away from the more solid and reliably birdy dogs that have been previously being produced. What's your opinions?
