Gordon Setters Have Reasoning Ability
Gordon Setters are known for their intelligence and good memory. That's not really news, especially for those of us who own them. But did you know that a Gordon Setter can recall where she found a bird, an entire year later? This may explain some of their "bird sense" they are known for.
Gordon's also have the reasoning capacity of a 5 to 7 year old child. For anyone who is a parent, they know that 5 - 7 yrs old, for a child, is probably the most reasonable age in a child's life. And like a child, Gordon's are so open to learning and having new experiences.
These factors alone, make training a Gordon Setter easier than most, and a pleasure to work with.
