Gordon Setters (Reg'd)

Our Dogs

The Gordons of Moonsetter aren't just our dogs, they're part of our family.  We don't have a large kennelful of dogs, though we do own a few more than your average "two dog family"!  

As part of our commitment to the Breed, our dogs not only strive to earn AKC bench championship, but also hunting or performance titles. In our case this usually means a Junior Hunter title, but we're also hoping to someday try our paws out in obedience or rally.


The exciting part of our dogs' accomplishments is, they are always breeder-owner-handled both in the ring, and the field.  There's nothing quite like taking a dog of your own into the breed ring and coming out a winner from the Bred-By Exhibitor class, or watching poetry in motion as they work a bird field.  Why would we want to miss out on that??

Oakley is our pick girl from the "ten little orphans" of the M Litter.  She is inarguably one of the kindest girls we've ever owned, and has been such a delightful contribution to both our home and our breeding program.  She is expertly shown by Olivia, and has given us three of our most popular and beautiful litters of pups!


Tamsyn, meaning "twin", is our pick puppy from the O Litter. Aptly named for being her papa's "little mini me".  She is without a doubt one of the smartest pups we've ever owned, which quickly led her to bird dog training camp as a youngster, where she started her career as one of our top personal hunting dogs - a priority before she stepped into the show ring.


Enzo, meaning "ruler of the house", was named (and is owned) by Olivia. One of a stunning litter of just three boys, this fellow was supposed to be our pick girl! We think Olivia's love of Gordon boys, and a little "wishful thinking" might have had something to do with it... but we're thrilled to have this beautiful boy as part of our family. 


Veronica, meaning "true image" wasn't exactly the name we had in mind for this lovely pick girl from our V-Litter. But, her litter was bred because of its pedigree connection to her grandma "Truly". When we found out it meant "true" image... it had to stay! 


Waverly is the pick puppy from the much-anticipated Y litter, out of our Enzo and Veronica. Being the only girl in the litter, we hoped she would be just half as nice as her parents. This little girl immediately exceeded our expectations! We can't wait to see what she accomplishes in the show ring and more.
