The setter is a gun dog variety used for hunting games like the pheasant and quail in a methodical way by freezing upon the prey instead of chasing it so that they can be trapped or shot. The four breeds of setter along with the pointer are included under the gun dog group in the United Kingdom, though the setter breeds differ from each other in terms of bone structure, head and substance.
