Llewellin setter

Just out of curiosity, why narrow your search to just Lewellin setters? I have yet to see one outperform a good ole regular English setter, which is all a Lewellin Setter is at the end of the day. Lewellin Setters are just a line of English Setters, and there’s a lot better plain ole English Setters out there.

I believe there is a gentleman on here that breeds and hunts Lewellin line of setters. Look thru the post on needing bird dogs for DiLane and you’ll find him. Coach K is his forum name.

I have a friend in Tallahassee Fla. that has some females for sale. I have 17 Llewellins and have owned them for 50 years. We use them on 3 different wild bird plantations here in South Georgia. They are recognized as a separate breed by FDSB. There is a difference between them and regular English setters. If there was any better I would own them. Llewellins have to be DNAed to prove their lineage. I can registered my mules as a English setter. No proof of lineage. Llewellins are the most loyal and best bird finders I have ever seen. Period! Hope you find one. You won’t be sorry.

They are fantastic dogs. You will love them (dog in my avi is my female llewellin) !! Coach K seems to know what he is doing!!!! Also look up paint river llewellins, I've listened to a lot of the breeder's podcasts and he seems to be a jam up hunter/breeder.

Private message me if you like.
Sorry, I just got back from 2 1/2 months of grouse out west and MN, so have not been paying attention to GON this past week.


My clients will speak for the quality of pointing dog we are producing. Yes, they are Llewellin Setters - a STRAIN of English Setter recognized by FDSB certificates under the breed heading.

My wife had our Llewellyn Setter "Duke" at the vets when a gentleman asked if he was a Llewellyn, my wife answered no - he's an English Setter. She told me about it and I told her the differences - we both had a laugh over it.

Many found memories hunting with him... he was responsible for finding and retrieving my first grouse in GA mountains, only winged it. 1980-06-Lori_Duke.jpg

I just noticed this thread and wanted to mention that I have a wonderful Paint River Llewellyn and my brother has a cousin to her. Both fantastic little dogs.
