Gordon Setter in the movies.
Gordon Setter has appeared in films such as.
  White Bim Black Ear.
In 1977, the film White Bim   Black Ear was released based on the book 
of the same name by Gavriil Troepolsky.   the story of Gordon Setter of an unusual 
color named Beam. an English setter was   filmed as an albino Gordon Setter.
Breed standards may change over time.   Both appearance standards and standards regarding 
breed character or working qualities may change.   The works of art of the early years depict the 
most typical representatives of the breeds of that   time.

Comparing with the modern appearance 
of the breed, you will be able to assess   how much the breed has changed over time. Also 
of interest are archival photographs of specific   breeds, which you can find on the Internet 
in specialized forums about the breed.
  Historical reference of the 
breed and subgroup.
  Setters This group of long-haired island cops 
was formed in England at the beginning of the   last century. The basis for their breeding was a 
primitive long-haired pointer of Spanish origin,   which should not be confused with modern bird 
hound spaniels. Later, when breeding setters,   the blood of a pointer, a greyhound, 
a poodle and even a Scottish shepherd   was added to the long-haired Spanish dogs.
It should be noted that until 1860 there was no   division of setters into separate breeds. 
And only at the second English exhibition   of hunting dogs in Birmingham, the breed of Irish 
setters was singled out from the group of setters.   And a year later there was a final division 
into English, Irish and Scottish.
  As a rule, animals work flawlessly in any climatic 
conditions, as hunters-athletes have repeatedly   convinced themselves.

These dogs do not even 
pay attention to cutting grass. Moreover,   setters not only withstand frost and heat, almost 
without suffering, but also become truly tireless   hunters. It happens that, exhausted from many 
hours of walking through swamps and fields, you   look at him and again find a taste for hunting. 
Observing the work of other cops, I had to be   repeatedly convinced that the long silky hairline 
of setters is indeed their indisputable advantage   over short-haired cops. Without belittling the 
hunting qualities of the latter, it should be   noted that the setters more fearlessly climb 
into any seemingly impenetrable bushes and reeds.   Injuries happen much less frequently.
The animal is quite comfortable for indoor   keeping. The little troubles that the setter's 
long hairline still causes are fully compensated   by the affectionate, often resembling 
tenderness, attitude towards the owners,   when the dog is ready to lie quietly 
for hours, watching their actions.
  Those who do not have the opportunity to keep 
a dog in the house should know that setters   endure the winter well in a booth in the yard. 
To do this, it must be insulated and placed   in a place protected from the wind, worrying in 
advance about a good bedding.

In such conditions,   dogs from autumn acquire thick hair with a dense 
and warm undercoat, and then they are not afraid   of even the most severe frosts.
The breed was bred in Scotland on the basis of   old English black and tan hounds, as well as 
Spanish marriages and brown water spaniels.   Formed by the middle of the 19th century.
These black and tan dogs are perhaps the heaviest   and most warmly dressed among the setters. By 
the name of the famous breeder Duke Gordon, who   was engaged in selection in the twenties of the 
last century, they are often called Gordons. They   are distinguished by a more balanced character 
among all English cops.

These dogs arouse the   sympathy of many hunters. They are characterized 
by a moderately passionate search with a heavy,   but fairly fast gallop. The dog holds its head 
high. The riding manner of searching for game   by the smell of the bird itself, and not its 
trace, is characteristic. Gordon skillfully   uses the wind and air currents for this.
The pull is calm, sometimes with wagging of   the tail. The dog moves confidently, unhurried 
step. The solidity of all movements is typical.   The stances are distinct, balanced and calm, 
rational, sometimes the cop looks back at the   approaching hunter. Holds the head on the rack 
not lower than the level of the withers. The tail,   as a rule, is calm, semi-drooped.

The back is 
straight, the hind limbs are set back and apart,   the muscles are not tense. The throw during the 
eyeliner is relatively high, moderately calm.
  What are the main features of this dog breed? It 
should be above average height, powerful, with   massive but not coarse bones and well developed 
muscles, relatively massive head and free wide   movements. The head is raised high, the look is 
lively, attentive. The construction type is solid.   Temperament mobile, energetic, balanced. Devoted 
attitude towards the owner is characteristic.
  The height at the withers in males is from 63 to 
69 centimeters, in females it is 4 centimeters   lower. Stretch index from 101 to 104.
The hairline of the Gordon Setter on the neck,   back, sides, rump is long, thick, soft, straight 
or slightly wavy. On the head and front of the   legs short, tight fitting. A little elongated hair 
is allowed on the crown of the head.

On the ears,   lower chest and abdomen, the back of 
the limbs is longer and thicker than   on the body. There it forms feathers.
Hunter-athletes highly value the Gordon   Setter for its endurance and ability to work 
tirelessly in both heat and cold.
  Gordon Setter is very attached to the 
human family in which he lives.
  Some breeds are strongly attached to one person, 
others to all members of the human family,   others may have a friendly attitude towards 
all people in general, and the fourth may   not have close ties even with the owner.
Gordon Setter are strongly attached to all   members of the human family in which they live. 
Strangers, however, are treated with caution.

  The attitude of any dog ​​to strangers strongly 
depends on the breed of the pet, but even more   strongly this attitude depends on the upbringing 
and socialization of a particular individual,   while socialization in the early puppyhood of a 
pet is especially important in this regard.
  At the same time, with children, the 
Gordon Setter behaves neutrally. However,   regardless of the dog's friendly attitude 
towards children, a dog of any breed should   not be left alone with small children.
Some breeds of dogs are more relaxed about   the behavior of young children and may not 
pay attention to some antics of children,   however, it should be understood that dogs of 
all breeds, no matter how friendly they are,   should be with children only under the supervision 
of the owner or adults, since in addition to the   qualities of the breed in relation to children, 
there are also the individual characteristics   of each dog, its upbringing and previous 
experience in communicating with children.   Even these relationships are largely 
influenced by the behavior of children.
  Gordon Setters may show negative 
attitudes towards other dogs.
  Different breeds of dogs treat their own kind 
differently, some dogs will play and interact   in every possible way with dogs they meet or 
live with, other breeds may try to dominate or   even attack similar four-legged ones.

At the same 
time, the relationship between dogs can be very   different from how a dog will react to people. The 
behavior of a dog in relation to other dogs and   people depends not only on the breed, but also on 
the socialization of a particular individual.
  Communication Gordon Setter with small 
pets such as hamsters, domestic rats,   squirrels, chinchillas and other rodents 
is best limited. Cats can get along.
  Gordon Setter is suitable for 
inexperienced dog owners.
  Some dog breeds are easier to keep and train, 
while others are more independent and even   assertive and require an experienced owner.
Gordon Setter can be kept in an apartment,   but a country house is much more preferable. 
It should be borne in mind that they cannot   stand loneliness and cannot be left 
alone even for a short time.
  The quality and quantity of wool allow the Gordon 
Setter to comfortably endure cold and heat.
  Learning and training.
All dogs can be trained and trained,   but some breeds remember and execute commands 
faster and more readily than other breeds.   Different breeds need a different 
approach to training and education.   Some breeds may appear to be poorly trainable 
or even stupid, however, in most cases, a dog   breed's trainability is due to the stubborn or 
independent nature of the dog breed or individual.   Also of great importance in the trainability of 
a dog is the role of what training methods the   trainer uses for a particular breed.
In the book The Intelligence of Dogs,   published in 1994 and written by University of 
British Columbia Vancouver psychology professor   Stanley Coren, the Gordon Setter is ranked 
37 out of 80 in terms of learning ability.   In this regard, the breed is on a par 
with such breeds as the Field Spaniel,   Newfoundland, Australian Terrier, American 
Staffordshire Terrier and Bearded Collie.
  In Professor Stanley Coren's book, 
Gordon Setter is located in the group:
  Dogs with above average learning abilities.
Mastering a new team from 15 to 25 repetitions.   Execution of the command from the first 
time: in 70 percent of cases and above.
  Tendency to bark.
Among other things,   breeds differ in the level of noise, or rather, 
in the frequency of their barking.

Some breeds   can bark all the time without stopping and never 
get tired of barking at every stranger or strange   dog that passes by your house or by herself, 
other breeds bark only on business, when it   is necessary in her opinion, and still others 
can only give a voice in exceptional cases.
  The Gordon Setter is quite prone 
to barking for no reason.
  But these dogs are not particularly 
distinguished by the desire to gnaw.   The desire to gnaw and taste everything is 
common to puppies of all breeds, but as adults,   different breeds have varying degrees 
of propensity to explore the world with   their teeth. Gordon Setter is 
not prone to such pranks.
  Activity and energy level.
According to the level of charge and activity,   breeds can also be divided into active and calm 
or even lazy.

An active dog will require constant   walks, training and frequent mental stimulation 
from you. Calm and less energetic dogs will be   happy with short walks around the house and will 
gladly share your desire to lie on the couch at   home. This feature should be taken into account 
when choosing a pet, since the unfulfilled needs   of an active animal will be realized at home on 
the things and objects of your home. The amount of   energy in the dog also determines with what desire 
and for how long the dog will play games with you   or with your child under your supervision.
The Gordon Setter is a very active dog.

Space   for development and active physical exercises are 
required. Gordons were bred to run and require 60   to 80 minutes of vigorous exercise per day. 
Young dogs should not be overtrained or begin   agility training until they are 18 months old 
to avoid joint problems later in life.
  In addition, many breeds have an innate desire to 
chase moving objects and animals, the degree of   this desire may vary from breed to breed. If this 
innate instinct is highly developed in a dog, you   need to carefully monitor the pet during a walk 
and keep it on a leash, since any moving object   can provoke the dog to chase, even if it is a car 
that can harm the animal, at such moments the dog   can disobey the call of the owner and switch all 
your attention to the moving target. In addition,   such breeds pose an additional danger 
to small domestic animals and birds.
  The Gordon Setter has a prey instinct, so you 
should keep a close eye on the dog during walks   so that some moving object or animal 
does not prompt him to pursue.
  Passion for vagrancy and love of freedom.
Some breeds have a tendency to cover long   distances on their fours, for which they were 
bred, so these dogs, following their instinct,   will not miss the opportunity to escape 
from you and run a couple of kilometers,   despite your calls.

Sled dogs, hounds and 
bloodhounds are mainly inclined to such walks. Due   to their hunting instincts, Gordons should not be 
allowed to roam freely unsupervised, as they tend   to wander by scent and can get themselves into 
a potentially dangerous traffic situation.
  Tendency to drool.

The amount of saliva produced   depends on the characteristics of the breed. 
Some breeds salivate so much that they can   leave marks on the carpet, on the sofa, on the 
floor and on you, other breeds also salivate,   but this happens in much less quantities.
Luckily the Gordon Setter   doesn't salivate much.
But the amount of wool that the Gordon   Setter leaves behind is quite noticeable.
The amount of dog hair in your home and on   your clothes depends a lot on what breed 
you choose, some breeds shed all year round,   others only seasonally, others hardly 

This characteristic of the breed   can be important depending on where you plan 
to keep the pet, whether members of your family   are allergic to animal hair, and how 
important it is to you in general.
  Dog care.
Some breeds may require a lot of grooming   and attention due to coat characteristics, 
muzzle shape, habitat, or the general health   of the breed. Well adapted to apartment life. 
The coat needs to be brushed regularly.
  Otherwise, this is an average breed of dogs 
in terms of the complexity of keeping.
  General health of the breed 
on a 10-point scale.
  The general health of dogs of this breed 
and the possibility of the appearance of   genetic diseases in them can be assessed 
on a ten-point scale of 9 points, that is,   they are quite healthy dogs with a minimum 
number of genetically predisposed diseases.
  Although Gordons are not as prone to 
hip dysplasia as many large breeds,   they can suffer from the condition.

health problems may include hypothyroidism,   gastric volvulus, and eye conditions such as 
progressive retinal atrophy and cataracts.
  The life expectancy of the 
breed is typically 10 to 12   years..
