Welcome to the Tarbaby/Dante Gordon Setters web site.
Tarbaby/Dante Gordon Setters was established in 1966 with the idea of producing the best quality dogs that can still do what they were originally bred to do. Much thought and planning goes into each breeding. Every effort has been made to produce well balanced, healthy, happy, multi-purpose dogs that can do whatever is asked of them, and look good doing it. Dogs that we have bred, owned , trained, or carry Tarbaby/Dante blood have successfully competed in the show ring, in obedience trials, in field trials, in hunting tests, in tracking, in agility, as support dogs for the handicapped, in search and rescue, as Delta dogs, as certified therapy dogs, and most importantly as family pets. These dogs have done everything from being "Best-in-Show","High-in-Trial", "Best-in-Sweeps, to being the first AKC agility titled Gordon Setter (Still the only Master). We are justly proud of our dogs and their offspring for the achievements they have attained.
