Before you buy a dog that likes to run like the English Setter, think carefully about whether you can offer it the necessary exercise and action for the posture. He loves to move and is fit like a sneaker.

Walk with the English Setter

The English Setter needs extensive walks in nature every day and doesn't mind if it goes a little faster. He likes to run on a bike, on a horse or with his owner while jogging.

Of course, his strong hunting instinct should never be forgotten on the way - always keep a close eye on your fine-nosed dog so that he does not go on tours on his own.
