As like other breeds your English Setter also requires early training and socialization. You should start training your English Setter the moment you brought them home.

Where To Start Training Your English Setter?

Like all other breeds, the English Setter also starts its training since the day you adopt them. For the very first month, you can start training them at your home, as they are small in size at their puppy age and don’t require a very big yard or place for training.

Teach Them Puppy words

Teach your English Setter puppy words such as, “come”, “go”, “go lie down”, “don’t touch”, “drop it”, “stay” etc. You need to teach these words after they learned the two most essential words: “No” and ” Good”. These words should be started at the first two, three months of their age.
