Tip Toe, that's my dogs name and you bet he is tip top. I purchased him at 15 weeks for a hunting dog and pet for my son Luke. At first sight he was fiesty compared to his sibling and I like him right away, so did Luke. I didn't post early because as a hunter I wanted to see if he could do the job for future hunters to read. Pointers, Gsp's are known for hunting not so much as indoor pets and hunters. Brittany's and setters are (typically) known as indoor pets, more family members and hunters. However are known to be harder to find in hunting quality. In Setters you look at size for superior hunting, the larger are usually show type. When I looked at Pilot, tips dad I knew he had it , the hunting gene smaller and athletic. I was right, easy to trainand loves his job. He is a hunter that is what make him tick. My finest to date. We have a very hard to find bond and he is only10 months old. Make no mistake these are gun dogs and also great pets. Thanks P

We purchased our English Setter, Lucas, from Christy Lee and it was a great experience. We were able to visit Ginger and Pilot before making our decision about breeds and that was it! we knew after meeting them that we wanted a puppy from their next litter. They are beautiful, loving, smart, healthy dogs. Christy Lee kept us informed during the pregnancy with Facebook messages and phone calls. Then we were able to see pictures and videos of Lucas from birth until the day we got him. I was able to call Christy (and still do) whenever I had questions regarding training or anything and she has been very good about sharing her experience and knowledge with me. Great tips in how to raise a healthy loving dog. Lucas has been an amazing dog and he is still so young (6 months next week). He is so smart and loving, just the perfect family dog for us. He does great with my girls (5 and 9 yrs old) and he is super friendly with everyone (He loves carpool time). Training has been actually pleasant and easy, to the point that we are considering getting another one soon. Christy keeps in touch with her puppies and their families....she took Lucas hiking with Ginger and Pilot few days ago! did I mention that he is also extremely handsome? yes he is a beautiful dog too.

My husband and I had never owned an English Setter but were interested in the breed. We do not hunt but have owned a Brittany as our last dog and we loved the sweetness and loyalty in a gun dog breed. I found Christy Lee's Setters in Alabama, listed on the Gun Dog Breeders web site. We contacted Christy Lee and set a meet and greet with her and her male Pilot and female Ginger, at their home. Christy talked to us for a good while about her work with Traing gun dogs and about her two fine setters and about their past litters. We put our deposit in for a female due from the next litter. We became the new family for our beautiful tri- color setter that we named Skeeter. What a smart puppy. We brought her home at the age of 6 weeks and within a month, she learned to go to the door to go out for her business. She is a very loving, fun filled young pup. She has taken to her puppy obedience classes really well. Skeeter is very friendly to all! Being a puppy still, Skeeter gets along with the small dogs in the local dog park. Skeeter does set the doves under the bird feeders as well as those that fly up to perch on the wires. She holds this pose for a good while. The natural talent to hunt is there. Skeeter gets her exercise daily with our walks, romps in the dog park, rides I the car, and play in her fenced yard. I make sure she has a fun and stimulating day with her well deserved naps listening to classical musical. Christy has offered any help if we have any questions or needs concerning Skeeter. Oh by the way, a lot of people complement us and Skeeter on her beautiful English Setter looks and demeanor. Thank you Christy for the best setter companion!

I have an English Setter that's 8 months old. We live in the city but have a house in the country and go there about 2 weekends out of every month. She is very familiar with our home in the country and roams about 10 acres but knows where home is. I saw your pictures of Ginger and Pilot at Ruffner Mountain and wanted to know if u put GPS's on their collars. I would love to take my setter hiking around bham but nervous about taking her somewhere where she isn't familiar. I would greatly appreciate your opinion. Thank you!!

Our Dixie is now 3 years young.. She is a great family dog. Definitely a bird dog. We have kept in contact with Christie and definitely would get another setter from her and have recommended her web site.

We have had Maggie since October when she was 6 weeks. She has been an amazing dog thus far and she continues to learn quickly and she is a natural hunter. We had a great experience through the whole process and would recommend Christy Lee's Setters to anyone looking for a great dog.

I am so pleased to say that I purchased my english setter pup from Christy Lee's Setters! My experience was outstanding from the very beginning to the end of our transaction, and we continue to stay in touch. At first sight of Ginger and Pilot, I knew that Christy cared about her english setters! They are beautiful dogs, with a superb temperaments, not to mention their pedigrees! I showed up unexpectedly to pick up Champ, and Christy came home from work to deliver him to me. Thanks Christy!

Christy, I just wanted let you know, that not only do we feel super lucky to have such an attractive young addition to the family (and I am personally wowed by all the compliments we continually get (as you've probably noticed through FB), but Phin simply has the sweetest personality. In a couple short months he has already become an integral member of our family. I continually smile as I watch my boys (and wife) have so much fun with him. His training is also going really well. He's a smart guy. His manners around the house are great, he does great on walks, with people and dogs each of all ages, and loves loves loves our regular runs and walks around our local trails and lakes.
As you know, Phin will not be raised as a hunting dog, but as a family dog and running companion. We are surrounded by wooded running trails and Phin already absolutely loves those surroundings. At 4 months, he's too young to go too far or often, but I can share that just the other day, he and I ran a comfortable 4 miles with him only dragging a short leash. He spent the entire run 10-30 feet in front of me, continually checking where I was. At the end, he clearly wanted to go out again!
You might have noticed, but I've kept him in a green collar, similar to the ribbon you put on him as a puppy. I'll always think of him as Mr. Green.

I purchased Conner from Christy in October of this year. He is an English Setter, now 4 months old. Conner is our third English Setter and I can't say enough great things about this breed. They are sweet, goofy, loyal and extremely loving dogs. Conner was our first purchase from Christy Lee's English Setters. She was wonderful throughout the entire process. She had pictures and videos posted, so I have a photographic record of Conner from day 1. She telephoned me often, both prior to and after picking Conner up, letting me know what was going on with him and then checking up on him. One thing that I think is wonderful about Christy's setters is that they are raised in her home, not a kennel. They are totally ready to be perfect house pets when they come home. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to get another setter, having 2 in the house right now is enough for me, but if/when I do decide to get that next English Setter, you can be sure that I'll get get him from Christy.

Just recently our family was lucky enough to take one of Christy Lee's Setters into our home. Our new pup, Ranger, is a strong, healthy, and an amazingly personable puppy. We got him around the age twelve weeks old and we couldn't be more blessed. Christy's pups are the perfect fit for family life in addition to the sport of hunting. Thanks to Christy, and the champion bloodlines of the her breeding dogs Pilot and Ginger, upon arrival to our home Ranger was already extremely obedient. Within a short amount of time he was already pointing at the birds in the backyard. We are so pleased with him and can't say enough good things about Christy Lee's Setters. If you are looking for a great setter to add to the family she's who you want to turn to for answers! Highly recommend her! She is great!
