Sugar Creek English Setters
Welcome to Sugar Creek English Setters. We are a small scale breeder in New York’s Finger Lakes Region devoted to a style of English Setter often characterized as Ryman type, or dual style. The combination of athleticism, natural pointing instinct, conformation and biddable temperment set Rymans apart from other types within the English Setter breed. Rymans are reliable retreivers and particularly good choice for hunters who train their own dogs. When not hunting, they make excellent family companions. This type originated with George Ryman's program in Pennsylvania in the early 20th century. While traditionally identified with grouse and woodcock hunting in the northeast states, many Ryman types including our own have proven effective hunting wild birds in the prairies, great plains and mountains of the western states too.
