Can Irish Setters Live Outside? – Answered!

There are people out there who’d rather have their dog outside rather than inside as they just don’t like their dog messing up their house. So, a question that may pop up in your mind when you’re adopting an Irish Setter is “Can Irish Setters live outside?

Generally speaking, no. Irish Setters cannot live outside as they enjoy to be around their owners, though they love the outdoors and it never hurts to take them outside. Just note that when it comes to keeping them outside all the time, this is just not recommended. If you’d like to learn more about Irish Setters living outside along with some fun outdoor activities, I suggest you keep reading.

How Long Can Irish Setters Stay Outside?

As to how long an Irish Setter can stay outside, it’s really whenever he wants in. He will tell you when he has enough.

However, generally speaking, after about a few hours, you may consider taking him inside, but it really depends on the outside weather.

If it’s extremely hot or cold outside, consider lowering the amount of time he’s outside, but your Irish Setter can still get the exercise he needs. Just try not to waste any time laying or sitting around for very long.

Can Irish Setters Sleep Outside?

No, Irish Setters should not sleep outside. While Irish Setters love the outdoors, you shouldn’t let him stay outside overnight.

This is especially true when their it’s storming and the temperature is just not comfortable.

Considerations Before Leaving Your Irish Setter Outside

Now, we know that Irish Setters can’t live outside, but this, of course, doesn’t mean that he can’t be outside.

In fact, most Irish Setters love being outside, but if you are going to take your Irish Setter outside, but there are a few considerations like food and water supply, insects like fleas and ticks, and the outside temperature.

Food & Water Supply

The food and water supply is, of course, very important if your Irish Setter is going outside. This is especially true when it comes to the summer and spring.

During the warmer months, your dog will drink and eat a lot more so you will have to check on his food and water more, but you will also have to check on it during the colder months also.

While he may not eat or drink any more than usual, you will have to worry about the water and food freezing over if you leave it out for too long.

Of course, if you live in a warmer area, you may not have to worry about this, but even warmers areas like Arkansas where I live will have nights that go below freezing in the fall and winter.

So, because of this, make sure your dog has plenty of warm water in the fall and winter and replace it if it begins to freeze over.

Consider checking their food and water ever hour.

Ticks, Fleas & Other Pests

Ticks, fleas, and other pests are another problem you may deal with in all the seasons.

While it is true that insects like fleas and ticks are found less often in the fall and winter, this doesn’t mean they won’t be a problem from time to time.

You see, during the cold months, insects like fleas and ticks seek a warm shelter, and typically speaking, that warm shelter will be an animal, and possibly your Irish Setter.

So, even though they are less of a problem in the cooler seasons, don’t let that fool you into thinking they won’t be a problem at all.

If you’re interested in finding a good flea and tick repellent, I suggest checking out this article from The Spruce Pets.

The Outside Temperature

Lastly, the last consideration we will be talking about is the outside temperature.

As I mentioned earlier, the outside temperature can drastically change the amount of time your Irish Setter can go outside.

While it is true that Irish Setters have a thicker coat, there are still temperatures that are too cold for them.

Fun Outside Activities For Your Irish Setter

Now, what are some fun activities that you can do with your Irish Setter?

That’s a great question. Let’s find out.


Walks are a very common activity and I know that it’s very popular. In fact, you may say that it’s boring, but it really depends on where you walk.

If you were to walk up and down your neighborhood street, that wouldn’t be as fun as going to a forest or a beach.

Not only can it be a great experience for you, but also for your dog as well. There are almost always new smells, new animals to watch, and new people to meet.


Fetch is another activity that’s very common, but I think I should still add it on the list.

Fetch is simple so it’ll be easy for your dog to understand what to do and it can also give your dog the exercise he needs.


Geocaching isn’t as common to do with your dog than, say, fetch, but it’s a great way to spend some time with your dog.

If you’re a bit confused with what geocaching actually is; let me explain. Geocaching, according to Wikipedia, is an “outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called ‘geocaches’ or ‘caches’, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.”

Going To A Dog Park

Going to a dog park is another fun way to spend some time outside with your dog, but there is a problem that may arise.

You see, as you let your Irish Setter go to dog parks more often, it’s likely that he will begin to think that you have no control over him.

When you go to a dog park, you leave him alone with a lot of other dogs to do almost whatever they want. So, this would make sense that he would think this.

If you still don’t understand why he’d think this, think of your dog as a small child. He doesn’t always know what you mean, so he can easily take things the wrong way.


The last activity we will be talking about today is swimming.

Swimming is not only fun, but also a great way to get exercise.

Just note, however, that while Irish Setters typically like the water, that doesn’t always mean some individuals will care for it. In fact, he may not even like it at all.

If you’d like to learn more about this subject, I suggest you check out this article I wrote. If you’re interested, here’s the link.


So, can Irish Setters live outside? I’m afraid Irish Setters cannot live outside, but they do love the outdoors!

Do you have an Irish Setter? If so, how often do you let it outside? Let us know in the comment section below.

Are Irish Setters Hyper? (Answered + Cute Video Inside)

Some of us are more active than others, and generally speaking, active people want active dogs, while more relaxed people want more relaxed dogs. So, when you’re planning on adopting an Irish Setter, a logical question to ask is, “Are Irish Setters hyper?”

Irish Setters are fairly hyper. While they don’t have infinite stamina, they are for the active dog owner as they need daily exercise. Just make sure not to make them do anything more than they need. If you’d like to know more about Irish Setters being hyper, along with some fun activities, and a cute video, I suggest you keep reading!

Daily Exercise Requirements For Irish Setters

Now, we understand that Irish Setters require daily exercise, but how much and what kind?

As to what kind, exactly, we will be talking about that in the next section, but as to how much, it really depends on the individual.

We do know that most Irish Setters are pretty active. So, consider walking your Irish Setter at least a couple times a day, though more than this would be even better.

Of course, if you have a backyard, this would be even better as you can let him essentially exercise himself, but not everyone has one.

You can also try exercising your dog inside. While he can’t get too much physical exercise inside, he can get plenty of mental exercise, which Irish Setters need just as much of.

We will be talking more about inside activities later in this article.

Fun Outdoor Activities For Irish Setters

What are some fun outdoor activities for Irish Setters? This is a great question!

Let’s find out.


The first outdoor activity we will be talking about is fetch.

I know what you’re probably thinking. “It’s just fetch!” “We all know what fetch is!” You’re right, and it’s so popular for a reason.

Not only is it simple, so your dog will understand what to do, but it can also give your dog the exercise that he needs.

Walks & Jogs

Walks and jogs are another popular activity that you can do with your dog, and for a good reason too.

Like fetch, your dog can get the exercise he needs, but there are more smells and animals to watch.

Even going down the street of your neighbor hood can be a great experience for your dog, but other places like beaches and forests are even better.

Not only is it great for your dog, but it’s also great for you as well.

Going To A Dog Park

Okay, dog parks are definitely a consideration, but we need to understand there are considerable cons.

Even though dog parks appear to be relatively harmless, as they are simply places for your dog to run and play with other dogs, there may be some behavior issues that arise.

If you take your dog to a dog park often, he may eventually get the idea that you really have no control over him and that he can do as he pleases.

You may think that this is just nonsense, but we need to realize that dogs think and act differently than people.

Consider your dog to be similar to a small child (I say almost for a reason). He can’t understand everything you do, and he often takes things the wrong way.


Swimming is another fun activity that you can do outside.

Just remember that there is a small possibility that your Irish Setter won’t actually want to swim.

If you want to learn more about Irish Setters swimming, I have made another article about that. If you’re interested, here’s the link!

Bird Watching

The last outdoors activity we will be talking about is bird watching. This activity is my favorite.

Why? Because not only can you do other activities like walking and jogging, but you can also see all the beautiful birds in your area. Bird watching can also be a great experience for your dog.

 Fun Indoor Activities For Irish Setters

Now, what are some fun indoor activities for Irish Setters? This is another great question.

Let’s find out.

Obstacle Course

An obstacle course can be a great way to use the usually unneeded objects in your house to make something that is fun for both you and your dog.

Just remember that your Irish Setter may be a bit hesitant to go through it at first, especially if they’re tired.

Obedience Training

Training for many of us sounds more of a boring task than a fun activity, but it can be beneficial for both you and your dog.

Consider teaching your Irish Setter how to sit, stay, “talk,” beg, and roll over. Sit and stay are especially important and can be used in everyday life.

Hidden Treasure

Hidden treasure is when you take three cups (make sure they aren’t clear) and put a treat under one of them when your dog isn’t looking.

Then, let him sniff out the treat without even knowing where it is.

This activity is a great way to get your dog to use the nose that he was designed for. It can also be a fun activity for you too.

Why Is My Irish Setter Acting Excited?

We now know a lot, but you may still be curious about why your Irish Setter gets so excited.

First, I want to remind of what excitement really is. Excitement really means an arouse into action. So, technically speaking, stress can also be excitement.

Of course, excitement also can be more positive as well.

So, what caused your Irish Setter to be so excited? Let’s look at a few possibilities.

  • He heard a car or a person
  • He saw someone, a car, or another animal
  • He hears or think he hears a treat box or bag

How To Calm Your Irish Setter Down

While it’s good for a dog to be excited, let’s be honest, sometimes they can get on our nerves when they are.

So, how can I calm an Irish Setter down?

Speak Quietly

Speaking quietly can help calm an excited dog, similar to how to calm an angry dog.

Restrain from yelling at your Irish Setter. If they’re running around and you yell at them, their feelings can turn from excitement to shame very quickly.

Also, it may not even help whatsoever. So, keep quiet and don’t act excited yourself.

Hold Your Dog & Show It Some Love

If your dog is stressed (remember, that can also mean excited), make sure you hold him and show him some love.

Have you ever been stressed and just wanted someone to comfort you? When he’s stressed, he may feel the same way.

Do note, however, that this opens the door to some behavior problems if you do this a lot. While it may not happen, do note that he may become more dependent on you.

Stop The Source

Lastly, stop the source of his excitement if you really want to stop it all together.

As I mentioned earlier, the source may be a cat, a car, a person, or another dog.

While you may not be able to necessarily stop the source, you may be able to separate the source from your dog.

He may already be separated, only he can see it. If this is the case, close the windows and try to distract him.


So, are Irish Setters hyper? It really depends on the individual, but in general, most Irish Setters are very active dogs.

Do you have an Irish Setter? If so, what kind of indoor and outdoor activities do you do with him? Let us know in the comment section below!

Are Irish Setters Aggressive? (Answered + Cute Video)

As dog owners, we want to make sure our dog is not aggressive and is under control, for our sake and, if you have a family, theirs as well. So, when you’re planning on adopting an Irish Setter, a logical question you would ask is “Are Irish Setters aggressive?”

Generally speaking, no, Irish Setters are not aggressive. Irish Setters love their family and won’t hurt them intentionally unless they feel threatened.. Just note that they can still become aggressive if they feel like they should, since Irish Setters are still dogs. If you’d like to learn more about Irish Setter aggression, I suggest you continue reading this article.

As you can see here, Irish Setters are not aggressive, but kind and loving dogs!

Are Irish Setters Good With Children?

Irish Setters are loving and patient which makes them great with children. Irish Setters probably wouldn’t intentionally hurt your child or children, though, you may have to worry about the child hurting the dog.

We all know that children (especially when they’re younger) can get pretty rough at times, even if they don’t mean to.

So, your child may accidently hurt your Irish Setter on accident if he isn’t careful. This is why it’s important to teach your children how to interact with your dog without hurting it. Even though they are great family dogs, they are still dogs nonetheless.

Can Irish Setters Be With Babies?

As with older children, your Irish Setter may accidentally hurt your baby, but you can help avoid this by simply supervising them when they’re around each other.

Your baby probably won’t hurt your Irish Setter either, but again, always supervise them both to make sure neither of them get into trouble.

Can Irish Setters Be With Other Dogs? 

Yes, generally speaking, Irish Setters are affectionate and can live with other dogs if they are introduced properly.

I would like to put a little more emphasis on “introduced properly,” however. Even though Irish Setters can coexist with dogs, they will most likely cause problems if they are not introduced properly.

Even if your Irish Setter acts fine throughout the process, the other dog may not.

The key to introducing two dogs to each other is not rushing it. Give them time to smell each other (there’s probably going to be a lot of that) and get comfortable around each other.

If you rush them, they will likely get a bit stressed and may lash it out on each other.

When I asked Irish Setter owners on Facebook if they had any other dogs, here are some of the responses I got.

We once had seven dogs (death in the family). Three setters, 1 cattle dog and three terriers. One of the terriers picked fights a couple of times. The setters never did.

Judith Lukas

Yes I have 6, and no dramas between them.

Jocelyn Sizer

I have three. No drama.

Can Irish Setters Be Around Other Pets That Aren’t Dogs?

As gentle and patient as Irish Setters are, they are still dogs, and worst of all, they were bred to kill game.

So, can Irish Setters be around other pets that aren’t dogs? Probably not, and especially not when it comes to smaller animals like chickens and rabbits.

If you do have any other animals, however, make sure that he can’t get to them. Pets like fish won’t be a problem, but other animals like chickens or birds can.

What To Do When Encountered By An Aggressive Irish Setter

While Irish Setters are affectionate dogs, it’s crucial you still know what to do in case he becomes aggressive.

What I say here applies for all dogs, though we are primarily talking about Irish Setters.

So, what to do you when you encounter an aggressive Irish Setter?

Back Away

This may sound like a no-brainer, but you have to back away. However, make sure you back away slowly. Running away can trigger your dog’s instincts and make the entire situation a lot worse.

Think about yourself for a moment. Have you ever been stressed and just wanted people to go away for a while? Your dog, when he’s aggressive, probably feels the same way.

Calm Down & Speak Quietly

Also, calm down. When your dog is angry, the way you act may come across as a threat or a signal to attack.

Acting jittery and scared turns on the signal in your dog’s brain to attack.

So, to make sure this doesn’t happen, remain calm and never make any sudden movements. It doesn’t make your dog feel any better, and you probably won’t make any better decisions.

Stop The Source of Their Anger

Lastly, find the source of their anger and deal with it appropriately.

Of course, if it’s you, then you have full control over yourself, but this may not always be the case.

If the source is another animal, such as a dog or a cat, try to get your dog away from it without making it any more angry.

If it’s a passing car or person outside the window, this source with naturally go away. If this is the case for you, try to calm the dog down until the source is gone.

If the car or person doesn’t leave, make sure you know that they aren’t doing anything wrong before you shrug it off.

Why Did My Irish Setter Get Aggressive?

As I mentioned earlier, you need to stop the source of the aggression, but in order to do that, you need to understand what’s the source of his aggression.

Below are some of the possible sources of aggression.

  • Sickness (i.e. rabies, lacerations, arthritis, various brain tumors)
  • Someone passing by (i.e. the mailman)
  • A car is passing by (i.e. your neighbor going to or leaving their house, the mailman)
  • Another animal (i.e. a cat or another dog)
  • Your dog is trying to assert dominance


So, are Irish Setters usually aggressive. No. In fact, Irish Setters are generally very affectionate dogs. Just remember that they are still dogs and can get aggressive if they feel like they should.

Do you have an Irish Setter? If so, can you recall if your Irish Setter ever got aggressive?

Can Irish Setters Be Left Alone? – Answered

We all have to go places where we can’t take our dog with us, so if you’re planning on adopting an Irish Setter, or you already have one, you may wonder, “Can Irish Setters be left alone?” This is a great question.

The answer is yes, Irish Setters can be left alone, but many Irish Setter owners have problems leaving their dog alone as they can develop separation anxiety. Learn how to properly train your Irish Setter to stay alone for long periods of time, otherwise, you may come across some problems. If you’d like to learn more about leaving Irish Setters alone, I suggest you keep reading.

How Long Can Irish Setters Be Left Alone?

Personally, I wouldn’t leave your Irish Setter for any longer than a few hours at a time. As I mentioned earlier, Irish Setters can develop separation anxiety.

If you want to go any longer than this, I suggest you get someone to check on your dog often, give him some food and water when he needs it, and, of course, a lot of love.

Can I Have An Irish Setter If I Have A Full-Time Job?

Well, that’s great, but you may have a full-time job, and you just can’t be with your dog all the time. This is understandable, but unfortunately, Irish Setters don’t like being alone for very long periods of time.

You may be able to pull it off, however, if you have a work-at-home job. Work-at-home jobs are fairly popular nowadays, and this, of course, would be much better than a full-time job outside of the house.

How Often Can Irish Setters Be Left Alone

Now, as to how often and for how long you can leave an Irish Setter alone, the less often, the better.

Just don’t leave your Irish Setter any longer than he has to. While they can be left alone, that doesn’t mean they should be left alone or that they can even do so mentally without training.

Are Irish Setters Prone To Separation Anxiety? 

Generally speaking, yes. Irish Setters are known to get separation anxiety, but individuals may be different.

Signs of separation anxiety include anxious behavior like pacing, whining, or trembling when you leave or get ready to leave the house, excessive howling or barking when you’re gone, and destructive behavior when you leave them alone.

While it’s not guaranteed that your Irish Setter will have this behavior problem, it’s important that you know and understand the signs in case you ever do.

What To Do If You Have To Leave Your Irish Setter

What do I do if I have to leave my Irish Setter for a long period of time? This is a great question.

Let’s find out.

Get Someone To Keep Your Irish Setter For You

If you are going to leave your Irish Setter for a while, consider getting someone to keep your Irish Setter for you.

It may cost some money, but you don’t want to leave your dog unattended and have him destroy your home.

Just make sure that whoever you let dog sit your Irish Setter, you know that you can trust them. There are people out there who can and will hurt or sell your dog.

Take Your Irish Setter Outside

If you’re going to leave your dog for a shorter period of time, however, consider taking your dog outside.

The outdoors is an amazing place for your dog. In the outdoors, there are always new smells, sounds, and things to watch and chase.

It’s also more freeing for your dog and, unless you have a tiny yard, offers a lot more room to run and play.

Just remember not to let him outside unless the weather is fair. Irish Setters just aren’t made to be in extremely cold or hot temperatures.

Give Them Plenty of Distractions

Whether your dog will be indoors or outdoors, some distractions are a great way to make time go faster for your dog.

The distractions can be toys and treats, or you could also get another dog.

If you are going to leave your Irish Setter alone for very long, however, I suggest you train your dog to behave better while you’re gone.

Training Your Irish Setter To Behave Better

While you can’t cure separation anxiety, it is possible to train your Irish Setter to behave better if he doesn’t like to be alone.

The first way to help treat separation anxiety is crate training. Why does this help, you ask? The crate can offer a safe and comfortable place for your dog when he’s stressed; the crate can be his second best friend.

The second way we will be talking about in this article is exercise. While this alone may not necessary make any huge difference, this coupled with crate training can help treat (not cure) separation anxiety.

I’m afraid I can’t cover everything to treating separation anxiety, but I think this article from the AKC can help give you a better idea.

What To Do When You’re Keeping Your Irish Setter Inside

When you’re keeping your Irish Setter inside (or really any dog for that matter), it’s important that your dog has plenty of food and water, so make sure that he has plenty of it at all times when you’re gone.

Your Irish Setter also needs a good resting area, so make sure that their crate door is open.

Lastly, get a few toys to help distract your dog while your gone. As I stated earlier, toys are a great distraction to help pass the time.

What To Do When You’re Keeping Your Irish Setter Outside

If your going to keep your dog outside, food and water is even more important. This is especially true if it’s warmer outside.

You may have a problem with the water freezing over if it’s very cold outside, however, so you may need to check in on occasion to replace the old water.

Toys and treats are not as necessary as the outdoors has many experiences that alone can entertain your dog, but it won’t hurt to throw a few toys outside.

Lastly, if you’re going to go overnight, you may want to open the door to his crate just so he can rest when he pleases.


So, can Irish Setters be left alone? Yes, they can, but that doesn’t mean that it’s okay if they’re left alone all the time.

Do you have an Irish Setter? If so, how long do you usually leave him outside?

Can Irish Setters Swim? – What You Need To Know!

If you’re planning on going to a beach, a pool, or a lake and you want to take your Irish Setter with you, you’re probably going to ask, “Can Irish Setters swim?” This is a great question.

The answer is yes! Irish Setters are known to be amazing swimmers who love it too! Do note, however, that you still need to train them to swim as you will still encounter some who are hesitant about swimming. The fact is, while most dogs are born swimmers, some still need a little help getting into the water.

How Long Can An Irish Setter Swim?

As to how long an Irish Setter can swim, it really depends on the individual. Some will like to play in the water a lot, while others may be a bit tired on that day.

However, I wouldn’t let your Irish Setter stay in the water more than an a few hours at a time, though, it’s likely he won’t want to be any longer than that anyway.

The reason why I say this is because land animals aren’t meant to be in the water for extremely long periods of time and may develop hypothermia if they do.

How To Teach Your Irish Setter How To Swim

If you want to be extra sure your Irish Setter can swim well, you may want to take him to swimming lessons, but you can do this yourself.

With dedication, persistence, and some supplies, it is possible to get your dog used to the water. If you want to go this route, I have listed a few tips and reminders to make sure you know what you’re doing.

Get A Life Jacket 

This is more of a must than a tip or trick. You should always get a life jacket if you’re worried that your Irish Setter won’t be able to swim well (not that it would happen, but just to be on the safe side), but it can also make your dog just a little more confident.

Once he realizes that he actually floats, he should be more likely to try to swim, but he won’t feel panicked either.

He may or may not like the life jacket at first, but getting a life jacket is a must if you want your Irish Setter to get used to the water.

Use A Toy To Encourage Him To Swim

Sometimes, if your dog seems a bit hesitant to get into the water, a toy (like a ball) can help encourage him to go into the water.

This method seems to be preferred over others, and the method makes a lot of sense too.

Dogs naturally like to chase things, whether the thing they’re chasing is running on the ground or even flying close to the ground. So, another great way to encourage him is to just throw his favorite toy into the water.

Get Him A Swimming Buddy

Ever got really nervous to try something new, but once a friend did it you realized it wasn’t actually so scary after all? This is common amongst people and the same goes for dogs as well.

So, consider getting a swimming companion for your dog that already knows how to swim. This can help encourage your dog to get into the water and swim with the other dog.

What If My Irish Setter Is Still Hesitant?

If your dog is still hesitant about swimming, don’t force him. Some dogs just don’t like the water. But, if you want to be sure he just doesn’t like water, try taking him swimming another day.

It’s possible that your Irish Setter just isn’t feeling up to getting in the water and would rather try another day.

What’s The Best Place To Take My Irish Setter Swimming? 

2 Irish Setters running into a lake

Now, we know that Irish Setters can swim, and we also learned about some tips and tricks to get your dog into the water and swimming, though you still may wonder, “What’s the best place to take my Irish Setter swimming?”

That’s a great question. Let’s find out.


The first most popular place to go swimming that we will be talking about are pools.

Pools are readily available and you yourself may even have one, though they are also very expensive to buy and maintain.


Lakes are also a popular place to go swimming, and they’re also fairly common. I know I live less than half an hour from a lake, and it’s possible you live close to one also.

Though, there are also a lot of other people who like to be on lakes, especially in the spring and summer, So, you may want to avoid them if your Irish Setter doesn’t like people.


The last place we will be talking about is beaches. Beaches are great places to take your dog swimming if you’re looking to also take a lot of pictures, though there are some cons as well.

First off, you may not live by a beach, so it may cost a lot of money to go to one. Second, there are a ton of people during the summer, and even if your Irish Setter love people, you may not.

Of course, whether or not you should go to the beach is your decision. Just consider the pros and the cons.

Preparing Your Irish Setter To Swim – What To Do

Now, what should you do when you’re preparing your Irish Setter to swim?

First, if you’re worried that you don’t if your Irish Setter will want to swim (not that you would have to that much), get a life jacket and a few toys to help encourage him to get into the water.

And lastly, get a few towels to help dry him off. If he isn’t properly dried, it is possible he can get hypothermia so much sure he is dry enough.

What To Do After Your Irish Setter Swims

As your Irish Setter gets out of the water, make sure you properly dry him off.

Then, check his ears and skin as dogs are generally sensitive to chlorine so it can irritate their skin

Lastly, give your Irish Setter some food and water. It’s likely he’ll be hungry and thirsty, especially if he swam for very long.

You may also want to get a drying agent for your dog’s ears. If his ears aren’t dry, it’s possible they can get ear infections.

Do Irish Setters Like To Swim?

As I mentioned earlier, Irish Setters love to swim. It’s generally known that Irish Setters not only are great at swimming, but enjoy it as well.

Though, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t come across some individuals that won’t like the water. While it’s not likely you will, there is a chance.


So, can Irish Setters swim? Not only can they, but they also love it too! Just remember you may still need to encourage them to get into the water.

Do you have an Irish Setter? If so, how often do you take your Irish Setter swimming?
