Do Irish Setters need haircuts? Irish Setters need to be groomed daily or every other day to keep their long, silky coats from becoming tangled. They are moderate shedders, so you will have some hair in your house, especially during shedding seasons. Irish Setters do not mature quickly.
How do you groom an Irish setter? Use either a brush with natural bristles or a pin brush on the feathered parts of the coat, which need to be brushed carefully to remove tangles and to avoid damaging the coat. Comb your Irish Setter with a metal rake comb every two or three days to remove any tangles or debris in the coat.
