Why Brush or Groom Your Irish Setter Dog?
Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a gleaming coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to reduce the need to bath and therefore reduce the regularity of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Irish Setter dog are activities that help to strengthen the positive relationship bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Irish Setter
Dogs with short coats generally require much less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired canines may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a couple of minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
Irish Setter Information
The Irish setter was bred to be a tireless and enthusiastic hunter, and it approaches everything in life with a rollicking, good-natured attitude, full of gusto and fervor. Given a daily outlet for its energy, it makes a pleasant companion. Without ample exercise, it can be overly active inside or become frustrated. It is an amiable breed, eager to please and be part of its family's activities. It is good with children, but can be too rambunctious for small children. It is less popular as a hunter than the other setters.
