As in most breeds, males (known as dogs) are bigger than females (known as bitches). Typically, bitches stand 23-26 inches (58-66 cm) at the withers (shoulders) and weigh between 45-70 pounds (20-32 kg) fully grown. Fully grown dogs stand 24-27 inches (61-69 cm) at the withers and weigh 55-80 pounds (25-36 kg). Field-bred Setters are a little smaller and carry less coat than Setters from show stock.
When an adult dog stands on its hind legs, it can easily place its paws on a woman's shoulders or a man's chest. During the last few decades Setters have become smaller than they were before due to breeding.
