However, training the Irish setter with the right approach is not difficult: these dogs are smart and sensitive. It is important to avoid rudeness in communication. The method that works with Irish setters is positive reinforcement.
Never hit a dog! Such methods will not bring the result you were counting on: they will only undermine your credibility.
Irish Setters are hunting dogs. So, even if you are not going to hunt, you must give your pet the opportunity to satisfy the thirst for search and running at large. When you train your dog with the “To Me” team, you can choose to walk in the fields and forests - the Irish setter will appreciate it!
In addition to the basic commands necessary for a safe life of the dog and your peace of mind, the Irish setter can be trained in Frisbee, agility or kursing, take part in freestyle or obedience competitions.
If you plan to hunt with a dog, you should entrust the training of the Irish setter to a specialist who has experience working with cops.
