About King Llewellin Kennel
Our breeding consists of ONLY 100% Pure Llewellin Setters. We have 2 major groups within our breeding program.
1) AMERICAN LINE LLEWELLINS: THIS GROUP OF DOGS GOES BACK TO THE FIRST DIRECT IMPORTS BRED BY Mr. Llewellin. For well over a century this group of dogs has been bred in the
2) 100% PURE DASHING BONDHU LLEWELLINS: THIS GROUP OF DOGS GO BACK 100% to the last bred from Mr. Llewellin
We consistently breed from at least 8 males in each of the two major groups.
1/3 OF ALL OUR DOGS ARE MALES. In this manner we have insured that all are LINE BRED without the possibility of being INBRED!
NOW, as we enter the 6th decade of breeding these wonderful animals we seek others to promise as Alfred did to continue this magnificent line of companion foot hunting gun dogs.
The Llewellin Setter IS the dog for all the family when hunting season is over.
In truth both groups of Llewellin Setters would have been almost extinct if not for the efforts of King Llewellin. During the mid 70's the media blitz was that "a setter MUST be from Field Trial stock to make a birddog." If all breeders had followed this edict the "foot hunting Bird-Dog like your Grandpa hunted" would have been gone.
Looking back over the years and years of talking Llewellin's I found this ………. I hope it is of interest and explains the love both FOR and OF the Llewellin Setter.
The Llewellin Setter is …
THE ORIGONAL SETTER …
It remains unique in that:
1 - The Llewellin is a pure bred strain of English Setter.
a - when the line registry split, the Llewellin is the one that remained
b – they have never been bred extensively for either "Show" or "Field Trial" exclusively.
2 - The Llewellin is what the English Setter was 100 years ago.
a - no hyperactivity bred in for field trial running, etc.
b - no extremes bred in for size preferences.
c – completely unique and bred for a companion/pet as well as excellent hunter.
d - a Llewellin hunts for you and with you instead of you having to hunt where it goes. If you change directions so does the Llewellin.
e - a Llewellin is not strictly a
f- Female adult weight 40 - 48# Male adult weight 50 - 58#
The main characteristic that distinguishes them is their PERSONALITY. They are as much like a child as any animal I have ever known. Like a child simple obedience training at a very early age makes for a much more pleasurable experience. (Never allow a pup to do something that you will have to undo later) - AND forms the control needed - when you start yard training & field training. They thrive on "love" and return the same thru devotion.

Submitted by: Dorene Lorenz on Aug 11, 2013We purchased a 100% Dashing Bondhu setter pup from the King Kennel. At nine WEEKS he appropriately pointed quail. At ten WEEKS he caught a quail that was on the ground and brought it home alive without spilling a drop of blood. At 11 WEEKS he caught a quail mid-flight that escaped from the pen, retrieving alive with only two feathers bent.
Biddable, housebroken, sweet nature, fearless, loves kids, all legs and color. Can't wait til he grows up.
