Tramore started in 1971 with the purchase of our first Irish Setter.  Our main concentration has been showing and breeding, but many of our dogs have gone on to successful obedience careers, therapy, agility, and recently field work.

Our mountain location, 30 miles west of Denver, provides our dogs with clean, fresh air, and natural excercise.  The kennel is an extension of the house, so the dogs have "couch" time, and are family members.  For this reason we try to keep our numbers small and frequently have young or finished dogs available to "special" homes.

Averaging a litter per year, we breed for sound temperaments, correct conformation, and healthy specimens.  We exhibit primarily in the Rocky Mountain West, but attend our National Specialty and other large shows.  We've produced over 80 AKC Champions, several Japanese, Mexican and International Champions, and have ROM's on several of our bitches.

We belong and subscribe to the principles of the Irish Setter Clubs of Colorado and America, and have served in many officer capacities with the former, and been on the Board of Directors of both.

What New & Exciting

Updated 3/7/14
Congratulations to Kristopher, Bronze GCH. Abbeylane Tramore Above The Limit,
for going BEST OF BREED at WESTMINSTER K.C.  He also has two
Reserve Best In Shows this past year.  Wow are we proud!!
Check out his photos in recent winners.

Cheers to Torrey, GCH. Tramore Notorious, who received an Award of Merit
at Westminster K.C. and one of the Garden Specialties.  These two
boys have been very special, and it was so exciting to see them 
 do so well. He now has a Group I, Group III, and Best of Breed
at the International K. C. dog show.

We would also like to congratulate several of the Tramore "P" kids that
are now pointed or been doing well at their first shows.  Check
them out in their own pages under Dogs We've Bred.

  Margaux, Ch. Tramore Red Center, JH  is now in season 
and will be bred to Kristopher (see above). Pedigree,
and pics will be on the site once she's bred.
Fingers crossed!  She would have her
puppies the middle of June.
