The Irish Setters are quite well-known all around the world for their beautiful and glossy red coat which is highly eye-catching and appealing in nature. These canines hail from Ireland and they are widely adored for their lively and affectionate personality and their striking looks.

In India, the demand for this breed is pretty average. These dogs are quite pricey to bring home and then maintain properly and are not very easy on the pockets of a lot of potential pet parents. Also, their tolerance to heat and high temperatures is not that great, and thus, they would require a lot of extra care and attention from their human parents especially during the hotter months if they want to comfortably thrive in a hot country like India. And due to all these reasons, it is now clear why these pooches are not in great demand in this country.

Given below is the average price list of the Irish Setter puppies which are available in various variations.

  • Irish Setter Puppy price (Basic): ₹45,000 to ₹60,000
  • Irish Setter Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹60,000 to ₹85,000
  • Irish Setter Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹85,000 to ₹1,25,000

Now, if you are thinking of bringing home an Irish Setter puppy and you want to get this pooch from a breeder, then your main focus should be on getting it only from a good and honest breeder. A responsible breeder will only provide the best quality pups to you and he will also care and nurture all the pups available at his place with all this heart. A good breeder is the one who is tremendously passionate about the canines just like you are and thus the fitness and health of the canine will be the first priority of such breeder. And, therefore, you should try to get the pup you are interested in only from reliable and trustworthy breeders.

Factors Affecting the Irish Setter Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Irish Setter price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for an Irish Setter dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Irish Setter puppy can cost anywhere around ₹45,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a Normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

The Irish Setters are divided into two different types which are Show-bred Irish Setters and Field-bred Irish Setters and these different types can influence the overall price of this breed.

But, as these dogs are only found in various shades of red which are Tan, Mahogany and Chestnut, it is seen that color of these canines’ coat does not affect their overall price to a great extent.

Age & Gender

Young dogs and pups are generally sold at a higher price as compared to old or fully-grown canines. Also, it is seen a lot of times that male dogs are sold at a bit of a higher cost as compared to their female counterparts.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Irish Setter is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

The dogs that are easily available in a region or a location tend to cost less than the pooches that are not that readily available in that area. As the Irish Setters have a subpar availability in most parts of India, the overall price of these canines is on a higher side compared to other breeds that are easily available.

Reputed Breeder

Also, it is commonly seen that reputed and popular breeders tend to charge a bit more for a dog compared to other breeders who are not very well-known or reputed like them. This again affects the overall price of a canine.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
