Our copper Irish Setter Dog Weathervane is very popular with lovers of the breed. It is a swell-bodied, non-mirror image piece, that is iconic of this lovely active dog on point. This design can be easily adjusted to create a lovely portrait vane of a beloved canine companion. Our experienced vane makers have developed specialty hammers for creating realistic fur of both long and short varieties. They are the best at this. We have worked from customer’s photos in personalizing several of these vanes. 

Personalized dog weather vanes can utilize various selections, including optional gold-leafing to represent your pet’s markings, distinct glass eye color, and collars with tags bearing your dog’s name.

The Irish Setter, also known as the Red Setter, is a breed of gun dog and family dog. The term Irish Setter is commonly used to encompass the Show-bred dog recognized by the AKC as well as the field-bred Red Setter recognized by the Field Dog Stud Book. The breed Irish Red Setter was developed in Ireland in the 1700s from the Old Spanish Pointer, setting spaniels, and early Scottish setters. Early Irish Setters were white with red blotches on their coats, but today the Setter’s coat is a rich mahogany color. The Irish Red and White Setter is more closely related to those early Setters. The Irish Setter’s name in Gaelic is Madra rua or ‘red dog’.

Originally, the Irish Setter was bred for hunting, specifically for setting or pointing upland game birds. They are similar to other members of the setter family such as the English Setter and Gordon Setter. Irish Setters are extremely swift, with an excellent sense of smell and are hardy over any terrain and in any climate. The Irish Setter is used for all types of hunting. It even works well on wetlands. Today, the Irish Setter is more commonly found as a companion and family pet.
