Welcome to the website for fanciers of English Setters in the New York – Metropolitan area! We are a small group who are devoted to enjoying and perpetuating these beautiful dogs. Along the way, our membership volunteers to organize specialty shows, hunting events, puppy matches, and social events so that setter owners and lovers can get together and share experiences.
We are a regional member club of the English Setter Association of America and ascribe to their code of ethics.
Hudson has a long history: back in 1963, a group of people from the New York Metropolitan area formed the club in order to better know the breeders and owners in the area. Over fifty years later, HESC continues to sponsor events that emphasize the versatility of the breed and encourage English Setter owners to participate in various breed activities. We also publish a monthly newsletter which announces conformation, obedience, and field results of our members, a calendar of upcoming events, and provides informational articles.
