Breeding planned for June!
means "soul friends" in Gaelic, and that meaning is reflected in our kennel name, Anamacara Irish Setters.
Dogs really are soul friends. We have enjoyed more than 40
years in the company of this breed, and look forward to many more. Dogs we own or bred have accumulated a total of nearly 70 AKC & UKC titles and certificates.
If you are considering adding an Irish Setter to your family, please visit our Looking for an Irish Setter page. Also browse through our living with Setters, common questions, and tips on travel, safety, and supplies pages for more information about the breed.
Our dogs are house
pets first and then find jobs in what they do best--the breed ring (conformation),
obedience, therapy dog work, etc.
We have earned titles in both American
Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC).
Our dogs have been hired for commercials, selected by artists as models
for limited edition prints, have been in photos selected for calendars,
and have been breed representatives at the Badger Kennel Club (BKC) Dog
Fair and Milwaukee Irish Fest for many years. Two of our dogs are Therapy
Dog International (TDI) registered, and routinely visit nursing homes. More...
We are members of the Irish Setter Club of America (ISCA), Milwaukee Irish
Setter Club, and all breed club BKC. At BKC we conduct puppy-training
and obedience classes and serve on several committees. We also assist other setter owners
with grooming and handling.More...
