1880s: English Setters English Setters were originally called Setting Spaniels. Before firearms came along, they would find birds and crouch down on their front legs (“set”) to allow the hunter to throw a net over the game.

The English Setter loves to be with people and does not thrive when isolated in a yard or kennel. President Theodore Roosevelt was the proud owner of an English Setter named Winks.
