My question is not just directed at Orphan puppies but more when there is a big litter and supplementary feeding is required or when a puppy seems to be dehydrated and is not suckling. How do people…Continue

How long have you owned Irish Setters?
Portia was the first Irish I owned in 1975, however grew up with Joanmas Lollipop who we got in 1964.I regularly showed my mothers dogs from 1972.
About Me:
I love irish setters . I mainly have show dogs but have working irish as well which i train for field trialling.I have had a full champion CH Astleys Portia of Rua who was the first Irish to win BIS at CRUFTS in 1981 and a field trial champion FTCH Rua Connemara of Porschet.I have also owned and worked a Gordon Setter Lusca Black Shadow at Porschet and a Pointer Ferglen Feroda at Porschet who also won awards at field trials.I have also handled my mothers Irish Red and White setters at trials and have taken them shooting with me.I also have been successful with my show pointers. I am a championship show judge of Irish Setters and have also judged some field trials on Partridge and Grouse.Outside dogs i enjoy playing tennis, piano/keyboard/guitar and reading.This keeps me fairly occupied.

Hi Collette,
Nice to see you have found this site. I joined it this week too. It is a bit addictive.

Hello Colette - welcome to the site.
I have of course judged your Irish at Bath Championship Show, and I still have the beautiful framed sepia prints of Portia, available after her Best In Show, Crufts win, in 1981.

See you soon

Hi there Collette
Oh yes you will get quite addicted to it. I find I have to ration myself to it...There are a few debates on the Forum that get quite heated, Hunting v Showing, you can probably see it from both sides, I have just taken one of my girls to a Working lesson, she did really well, but wants to chase the birds all the time, unfortunately I have never thought that I would work her, so she has been aloud for 31/2 years to chase birds....any suggestions???? Nice to speak to you, speak soon Dee and the girls

Hi Colette!
As an accident I happened to see that you are on this site.
We met some 10 years ago in England together with Per and Tina.
Hope everything is good with you and your dogs!
At the moment my wife Maria and I have 6 dogs
3 Irish setters and 3 English setters.
3 of them are Champions and 5 are winnerclassdogs on huntingtrials.

Thanks for kind words about our Irish! Kennel Discovery, own by Barbro and Bo Rehn, started breeding Irish 1982 mainly based on Clonageeralines and later on they also breed from Thendaradogs. For more information please visit the website, www.kenneldiscovery.se We have big expectations about this last litter with MIller and Siofra. Will put photos here at site later on.

What an achivement to win Best In Show at Crufts!!!! I hope you will add some photos from that moment. Best Wishes Jenny

Welcome to this fascinating setter-site!
I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of your dogs at work. Somewhere I have a lovely photograph of I think Flame of Tara (?) . must look in my old albums and get it scanned for you.
I was in POD's training course and would have loved to see more Irish, but sadly Glen was the only one there...
wishing you all the best
