The Irish Setter is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Sporting Group' with roots originating back to Ireland.

This is thanks, in part to, its very large size combined with its highly active energy levels.

It's well known that setters, spaniels, pointers and retrievers are all active companions. Chosen commonly today thanks to their likeable personality more so than their ability to hunt, the AKC Grouping 'Sporting Group' is the most likely AKC group to benefit from a high-protein diet. This is due, in part, to a high-protein diet's ability to control weight gain while still providing much needed nutrients for this very active group of dog breeds. Hailing from Ireland the Irish Setter is no exception to this truth. The Irish Setter's outgoing, sweet-natured and active temperament makes for a great pet but their highly active energy levels require a high-protein diet to give them enough nutrients and calories to sustain their level of energy. This is especially true if the Irish Setter tends to get a little overweight due to lack of access to exercise thanks to a high-protein dog food's calories to nutrients efficiency.

The Irish Setter is considered a highly active dog and thus your Irish Setter could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a highly active Irish Setter. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a highly active dog like the Irish Setter. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Irish Setter is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a highly active Irish Setter.


The Irish Setter is a very large, tall dog weighing in at over 70 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their very large frame.
