Did you know? As guns for hunting became easier and faster to load and had better range and accuracy, a specific dog breed was needed to replace the slower moving pointers. Setters were found to move faster than pointers, which were primarily used when hunters relied on muzzle-loading firearms. Setters had "talking tails" which informed their hunters how near they were to game. The closer the game, the faster by the beat of their tails.
