Breeding and showing English Setters. We called our kennel Broughall in recognition of life's work of Edward Laverack (1800-1877) who is the most significant contributor to the development of English Setter breed as we know and admire nowadays. For awhile these distinctive dogs were called Laverack setters and Broughall Cottage (located in the village of Ash, Shropshire, England) is the place where he lived and bred his setters. We hope that our humble contribution to the breeding will help this loyal, kind, smart, elegant and beautiful breed to continue in times.
Historical fact: in 1878 English Setter was one of the first breeds accepted into newly founded AKC. One dog had to be the first and it was Adonis, English Setter, who held the AKC registration # 1.
