Can anyone suggest an english setter breeder for a puppy or started dog? Prefer northeast but can travel for right dog. Prefer good temperment (house dog) with ability to hunt. Thanks

A big chunk of good cover dog & horseback shooting dog lines come from the NE. Start lurking on grouse dog trial forums. If willing to invest in something special, look up Jerry Kolter/Northwoods Bird Dogs. He'll point you toward who has what where.

The northeast has 2 styles of setters. Trial dogs and appalachian style dogs. One style you need rockets on your feet to keep up with and the other style is more of a close hunting grouse style dog. Depends on what you're looking for

No personal experience with these folks, but you may consider Paint River Llewellins. Beautiful dogs, and bred for the NE.

Good luck. Setters are the finest dogs a man could have, but Im partial.

Another vote for Berg Brothers. I have bought two from them in the last 12 years.

Jerry gets my vote. I've spent a bit of time with him working dogs. He's one of a kind. So are his dogs.
