 MARTIN DINGMAN
Llewellin Setter History

The Llewellin Setter has a long and rich history dating back to England, during the mid 1800’s. This rare breed was developed through well documented and selective breeding practices, beginning with standard English Setters, and outcrossed to the Gordon Setter, and South Esk (a now extinct breed). Martin Dingman Royal Llewellins have been traced back to the original bloodlines from England, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as the architects of the breed, Mr. Edward Laverack, Lord Richard Purcell Llewellin, and Lord William Humphrey. This unique breed is exceptional in the field, and even better as a family companion (a rare combination for sporting dogs). Martin is an an advocate of the outdoor sporting life dating back to his childhood days, alongside his grandfather who raised and hunted Walker foxhounds. Martin's goal as a breeder is not to produce the most, but the finest Llewellins, and to protect and continue the tradition of these beautiful and very special dogs. Currently Martin and his family enjoy the companionship of Henry (8), Saxon (3), and the latest addition, Ivy (14 wks). Martin has a limited number of Llewellin puppies available each year, from the same bloodlines as Henry and Saxon, reserved for families who truly have a love of the breed.
