A message from ESA President Valerie Foss to all ESA Members, 'KEEP CALM & CARRY ON'

We now have a brand new website on test, please give it a try, click www.esaweb.co.uk.

This is the national breed club for the English Setter in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1951 and has around 700 members worldwide. The English Setter Association aims to support those who own the breed as companions as well as those who wish to show their dogs. These pages will provide information on all aspects of owning an English Setter as well as all activities of the Association.
