The Llewellin Setter is a very gentle, calm dog. Friendly and excellent with children, it is mild mannered, loving all the affection it can get. Enthusiastic and lively outdoors, but relatively inactive indoors. With meek owners it will become willful. Can be difficult to housebreak. Rules, structure and training should start early to prevent development of bad habits. This breed needs authoritative, calm, but firm, confident and consistent owners, but should never be harshly treated. Needs a lot of structure and enjoys playing with other dogs. Llewellin Setters are adequate watchdogs. They like to roam and are diggers and good jumpers. Owners need to be firm, but calm, confident and consistent. Proper human to canine communication is essential.

Living Conditions

Not recommended for apartment living and does best with at least an average-sized yard.


All setters need a daily long, brisk walk or they will become restless and difficult to manage. In addition, they will also enjoy running free in the safety of a fenced yard. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human.

Life Expectancy

About 10-12 years.
Regular combing and brushing of the soft, flat, medium-length coat is all that is required to keep it in excellent condition. It is important to check for burrs and tangles, and to give extra care when the dog is shedding. Bathe or dry shampoo only when necessary. Trim the hair on the bottom of the feet and clip the nails. This breed is an average shedder.


The Llewellin Setter was bred out of English Setter  lines by an English breeder named Llewellin. The word "setter" comes from the way the dogs appear to almost be sitting down when they discover game. The Llewellin Setter's talents include hunting, tracking, retrieving, pointing, watchdog and agility.
