Long Hollow Setters is dedicated to the development and improvement of the English Setter field dog. Our philosophy is simple ....We breed only proven individuals from the finest Setter bloodlines in the nation. We seek to produce Setters that point and retrieve upland birds at an early age, do it with style and intensity, develop early, and have the disposition of a companion and family dog.
Our dogs are hunted extensively here in central Montana, where we have abundant numbers of upland birds . While we are first and foremost bird hunters, we also compete with our dogs in National Shoot to Retrieve and American Field trials. We feel that the field trial sport encourages the full development of each dogs potential, and fosters an unbiased appraisal of which dogs should be chosen to carry on and improve the next generation.
If you agree with our philosophy , and think a Long Hollow Setter may be right for you ..... give us a call or send us an email. We are always ready to talk Setters.

Our latest addition is " Long Hollow's Montana Belle". She is a direct daughter of " Terharr's Elvis" - the current Grand National Grouse Champion, out of a Berg Brothers Jack / Awsum Angel and Grid Iron female. This combines the best genetics of the Grouse Ridge and Long Gone Setters, along with the Sunrise / Crockett blood that our dogs are traditionally heavy in.
Our thanks to the long time Setter breeders ( The Flannigans and the Murrays ) and the newer breeders ( The Berg brothers and Dave Terhaar ) along with Bob Kluger at Waymaker Setters for producing such a fine dog to carry on the Setter tradition.
We are very excited about " Belle's" joining us. Check back this year for pictures as she progresses in her training , and enters the field trial arena.
