Annagh House est 2001
Life has presented challenges to us at Annagh House and we have to rise and overcome. Decisions and priorities have guided us to move Annagh Irish Red and White Setters to a new location. We have downsized acreage and prepping for retirement.
Annagh Thuaidh (Annagh North) replaces Annagh House as the home for our family and beloved Irish Red and White Setters. Away from Southern Ontario we are now enjoying the beauty of Lake Superior Shores in the Thunder Bay Land of the Sleeping Giant. The shores bear similarity to the Northeast coast of Ireland, birthplace of my mother, with it’s unique display of Canadian Shield meeting the largest of the Canadian Great Lakes.
Annagh Thuaidh provides a wonderful playground for our dogs. They have their own expanse of rocky shoreline with loons, ducks and even pelicans. Our bird of choice will now be grouse for hunting which are plentiful on the many kilometers of trails through adjacent northern forests.
Bob wanted a dog he could hunt birds with and I wanted a companion to compete with and enjoy. We researched the Irish breeds and found our perfect match.
The Irish farmer had many uses for the farm dog and it was often the setter that fit the bill. Accompanying the farmer on rounds, hunting and tracking, retrieving from water and in evening settling in with the family by the fire. The farm dog kept one eye open alerting the farmer to any visitors.
The Irish Red and White Setter is bred for hunting and needs daily exercise. This breed is sensitive and requires a steady consistent trainer. The coat is pearly white with red patches and needs a comb out regularly and bathed once a month.
Our dogs are bred for health, temperament and quality. Select owners of Annagh Irish Red and Whites have demonstrated an understanding of the needs for these one of a kind dogs. They will steal your heart but give you even more in return.
Thunder Bay Airport has direct flights to Toronto making puppy availability very accessible to the right families.
