Welcome to EvrSett English Setters!   Our family has been breeding, showing, and hunting English Setters for over 25 years.
Why is the "CH" in front of our dogs names so important?
At EvrSett we strive for all our puppies to be sound in mind and body.  Our first priority is to ensure a temperament true to the breed.  As stated in the AKC standard, an English Setter is to be "gentle, affectionate, friendly, without shyness, fear or viciousness."  Assuredly, structural correctness is also a top priority.  This includes correct movement, bone structure, and angulations as determined by the breed standard.  English Setters were bred for function, and the breed standard aims to preserve the function and high quality that this breed requires.  We utilize tools such as BAER testing for deafness, OFA certification for hip and elbow dysplasia, and thyroid testing to identify individual health concerns and exclude these individuals from our breeding program if necessary.
All of our setters are registered with the American Kennel Club and we are proud members of the English Setter Association of America, the Kettle Moraine English Setter Club and the Minnesota English Setter Club.  We abide by all guidelines set forth by these clubs for responsible breeders.

Fall 2019-
Many, many exciting things that went on this past summer and fall!-
Streaker, New CH EvrSett Duck Naked, finished his championship with 3 Specialty major wins from Kettle Moraine ES club and Western ES club in June.  He even took Best of Opposite over several specials at the KMESC!  We are excited for him to grow and mature! 

Emmy Lou, EvrSett Paisley Check Yes or No, stayed with us most of the summer and we were able to take her to a few shows as well! She went Reserve Winners on Saturday and Winners Bitch/Best of Winners on Sunday at the Michigamme Specialty show the first weekend of September for a 5 point major!! So much fun!  Emmy Lou is owned by Sandy Charkowske.

Arrow, EvrSett Flying Duckbris, has done some winning up in Canada, finishing his Canadian Championship and sweeping the Duluth Kennel Club shows for 9pts towards his US championship.

Honey, EvrSett Sticky Sweet, who is not the most thrilled at showing, was Winners Bitch both days at the Key City KC for a couple of points.  She also made her Junior Handling debut at the National this year with Adeleaide! 

Dogs available!! We are still looking for a forever home for Bolt, EvrSett Flashpoint.  He is a beautiful, showy orange male with the sweetest disposition.  We would like a family that is willing to have him shown to his championship.

We also have a neutered, retired Grand Champion male looking for a forever home.  He would do best as the only dog, or perhaps with a female companion.  He loves to be around people, so a home that likes to take him places would be ideal.  He is a great companion and loves to

Puppies and Puppies!  2 boys arrived on Dec 26 to Berrie and Streaker.  Pups and mum are doing great!  Both will be available for sale, however, just by looking at them now, we are hoping to find some families who might be interested in having them shown to their championships.  They are both looking beautiful!  Inquiries welcome!  We will be breeding this spring as well.  Thanks!

In some sad news, we lost Ferg on Winter Solstice.  She was such a gentle girl, amazing mom and truly the most perfect dog and compantion I could ever ask for.  She loved to show and hunt birds, pick up Henry from the bus every day and help me with chores around the farm in her later years.  She welcomed all my babies home and loved them as if they were her own.  There is a huge hole in our hearts for the Ferg.  I wish I had just one more day with her.  She left this world with a dignity that only she could possess.  Wait for us at the Bridge, sweet girl.  Play with Hattie and Webby until we get there.

May 2017-

Well, after a bit of a break from showing, we are gearing up for the show ring soon!  We will be traveling to the specialites in Ohio over Memorial Day weekend and plan on attending the Western and Kettle Moraine specialties in June.  We are awaiting some puppy news, so keep fingers crossed that all went well!  I'll post announcements as we have them!

Dec 2016-
Wow! I'm a little behind on my news but we've had an exciting fall!  First was our trip out to Portland, OR for the ESAA National Specialty.  Mom, Baby Finn and I jumped in the car, filled with 3 setters and all our stuff and took off  across the prairie.  It was a great trip SUPER LONG, but great. Berrie was honored for being in the Top 20 English Setters in the COUNTRY last year, so that was awesome!  We got to see her baby, Goji and owner Melissa!, who did really well for his first-ish specialty show, and placed in all his classes.  Emmett, who also made the trek made it all the way down to the last 8 male specials at the National Specialty.  Plus lots of sight-seeing...it was so FUN!  We loved it and the host clubs did a great job of running the show!

In Nov, Emmett finished his Grand Champion title at the Coulee Kennel Club going best of breed over several specials.  A very fun win!  Now we wait for the girls to come into season for pups!  Hopefully by this spring!

Summer 2016-
We are excited to announce we have PUPPIES!  One boy and one girl were born June 30 to Pippa (Ch EvrSett's Royal Producktion) and Wrigley (Ch EvrSett Sticky Situation for Trabeiz).   They are doing great!  I'll post pictures soon.

We are still hoping to have another litter yet this year, hopefully the girls will cooporate!

We haven't had a lot of time for shows, but did manage to make it to the Western Specialties and Kettle Moraine Specialites in June-  We are excited to say that Berrie, GCh EvrSett You Don't Know Quack, won Select Bitch both days of the Western, and Fiona, EvrSett Apple Ducklin Ala Mode, was Winners Bitch/Best of Winners/Award of Merit on Friday!

We had some shocking news in June as well, Hattie (EvrSett Ain't No Rest for the Wicked), was diagnosed with a fast growing cancer and lost her battle soon after.  We are extreamly heartbroken as she was a beautiful soul with the sweetest disposition.  She was lost way too young.  Hug your pups close, we never know how long we will be blessed with them.
