IRISH RED & WHITE SETTER CLUB OF GREAT BRITAIN STATEMENT REGARDING

THE CROSSBREEDING OF IRISH RED AND WHITE SETTERS

 

Whilst acknowledging the Kennel Club position with regard to reciprocal agreements, the Irish Red and White Setter Club of Great Britain, havingmonitored the health and genetic viability of the breed for over 30 years, considers a crossbreeding programmeneither necessary nor desirable at this time.

If, at some time in the future, it should become necessary to crossbreed in order to preserve the genetic viability of the breed worldwide, any proposed strategy would only be implemented after consultation with other breed clubs in the UK and overseas and with the sanction of the Kennel Club.




Welcome to the new site for the Irish Red & White Setter Club of Great Britain.

The Irish Red and White Setter is an ancient breed from Ireland, the forerunner of the Irish Red Setter.  They are loyal, trainable (with patience) loveable clowns, and sometimes downright rebellious devils, but with firm and kind handling will become a much loved and admired take anywhere member of your family. No matter what you intend to do with your Irish Red and White Setter, show, obedience, agility, working or just a loyal and loving family pet, we hope there is something of interest on this site for all.   

If you are not a member and are interested in joining please print-off a membership form and join the Club!  Following its revamp this site is still evolving and if there are any topics you would like to see included, please feel free to contact our Web Master.

We look forward to meeting you in person at one of our events...
