The Title “Dual Champion” beyond doubt is one of the most coveted titles in the pure breed dog world.

 

In order for a dog to receive the title Dual Champion the dog must finish both a Championship and a Field Championship. The order in which a dog completes these titles is not important.

Beging in 1952 there are 54 Gordon Setters that have earned the title Dual Champion. The links on the left are pages of these dogs containing pictures and information I've be able to find. I'll be happy to add any missing information if you email me. Credits for information and photographs are cited. Enjoy.

The Dual Breeder: Breeding for Both Conformation and Performance

For some, like dual Gordon Setter breeder Frank Watters, it is a passion that is its own reward. Watters judged the Hunt Test at the Gordon Setter Club of America’s 2007 national, and his dog DC Tarbaby’s Setanta T Rex, JH, is the breed’s 46th dual champion. “It can get expensive, and there are a lot of practical challenges involved,” he says. “But I can’t think of anything I would rather do.”
