I, too, am a South African owned by Irish Setters.
I suspect we are at opposite ends of teh country as I do not seem to have run into you at Dog Shows (should you be an exhibitor).

Glad to hear from you.
I am busily compiling a book about Setters in SA. With your experience, I am sure that you would have tonnes of information! May I convince you to part with some of your Kennel history and breed knowledge, please?
I would love to hear more about your successes, and see pictures of your Irish.
I have a bitch out of Oakdales right now, also based in WP - she is such a wonderful character and unbelievably intelligent (aka quite a handful at times)!
Once owned by an Irish Setter, always an enthusiast, in my personal opinion.

Dear All! I am a proud owner of two Setters, Fiddich (will be 2 in January) and Jamie (will be 1 in December). We live in Potchefstroom. I'm very glad to be able to be in touch with other South African Setter owners!

Hi All

We live in Cape Town (Bellville/Durbanville) and Jenni (1yo, Irish Setter bitch) is hoping to find some friends close by for puppy playdates ;) I'd love to see her play with another setter, they're just so beautiful! We'll hopefully be going to some obedience classes this year... hmmm, shall see how that goes.

Pls let me know if you're keen to meet up? There's a lovely farm outside Durbanville where the pups can run free and play with some friendly Border collies :)

Hello Annelle,

Suggest you contact Bridget & Malcolm Wren who live in Cedarberg Rd. Durbanville - they have one of Jenni's sisters and a cross bred dog which they rescued having found him abandoned and left to a miserable fate.  Do mention my name to them - they are lovely people - 021-9767194                           Bridget's cell 083461 1227

Hope you can get together for a play date, perhaps encourage them to join us on Exclusively Setters.
