A friend of mine has a real nice Gordon Setter, good nose, strong point, lots of energy! Don't see many Gordons on here, is anyone hunting with a Gordon, if so maybe we could get you to post a few pictures of them in action!

I don't own a Gordon but I did have an opportunity to purchase a started 4 year old female Gordon a year ago. Looking back I wish I had gotten that dog. Here's a couple nice photos of her. If these photos appear too big just right click on them and select "open in new tab".

Sorry, this one is a reproduction. Best I could do. This is "Thunder" FT Ch. Got his title running against GSPs, Britts, etc. Also had AF placements (horseback pointer trials). This is the Gordon that judge Sherry Ebert called a "true AA Gordon".
He looked exactly the same backing (which came with it's own challenges).

Gordon Setter Guy from Boise. Think I met him at a trial at Boyce Corrals near Madras, Ore several years ago. Folks, this guy has some really nice Gordons!

Lady up in NW Washington has about the nicest Gordon I've ever seen. This is her dog on a bird. also Boyce Corrals near Madras, Ore. Wish I could remember the dog's name!

Ran my LS in our first hunt test in December. Saw a couple of really nice Gordons at that event. Small and energetic. Different from the ones that a buddy of mine hunted with around here.

Many dog people discuss the visibility of white dogs vs black dogs believing that black dogs are generally harder to see. Granted there are times when a black dog pointing in the shadows may be more difficult to pick up...AND... depending on where you are hunting there may be much more shadow then open cover. And the inverse (More open areas than shadows) may also be true. Here's an example of the country I hunt in and a white and black dog both on point. Which one is easier to see?

I've had two terrific Gordons, but you've got plenty of pictures already. What you should understand if you're seriously considering one is that for a low-registration breed, there are a surprising number of "types". Not lines, but types. I've had an AKC Field Trial dog (though dual registered with the AF/ Field Dog Stud Book,which is another type) and a "Dual Dog" which is mixed FT and show type. Really a fine easy-training type, by the way, but with more bone and coat than the two FT types, though a lot less than show dogs.

Putting aside genuine show dogs, you won't go wrong with any of them, but it is worth considering. It's a wonderful breed, and they are much more protective and "one-man dogs" than the other setters,if it matters to you. They need to be house dogs.

Really nice, beautiful pictures and a credit to the breed, keep them coming! Just don't see much of them when hunting, at least not in my neck of the woods.

Ricki is a VERY nice Gordon, for sure! Belongs to a delightful, dedicated lady (Janet) that has done very well with Ricki in trials. ...if that's Ricki? It's been awhile since I've seen Janet/Ricki.

Gordon Guy, I do see both dogs but the backing dog is harder to see for sure. The more white on my dogs the better but I do see your point (no pun intended). Still, color alone does not a good dog make. :wink:
I would love to see your Gordon working!

Thank you Don.

Maybe with any luck I'll see you again this year. I've got another one that will do well.

Featherfinder, anytime.

I got my first Gordon this summer. He is 7 months old and so far he has been a lot of fun.. very willing..... learns fast..,.. really good prey drive..... he can be a touch hard headed but not as bad as my last 2 GSP. Overall he has been a joy to have around .He is very vocal and will tell you what he is thinking. I think I will try to find another Gordon pup.
