Experience is the Teacher of all things



 My name is Sherri Doratti, and I have owned and loved English Setters since 1988.  We are located in the West Boundary are of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.   My breeding program has been scaled back over the last years, although I do have plans for the future. Sharing our lives are Lace, Annie (both ES) and Hush, our Deerhound friend.  While life has been constricted the last while, we are looking forward to continuing breeding and showing.  

I am a lifetime member of the Canadian Kennel Club and the English Setter Club of Canada.. Currently the website is under a full restructuring and overhaul, please bear with us as it evolves.   

Our Current Dogs

We have 3 girls in residence here at Desert English Setters, Lace and Annie, who are English Setters. Lace is from my last litter, way back in 2012 and Annie is from Aerden ES in Minnesota.  We also have Hush, our Scottish Deerhound friend.  Hush was an unexpected addition, she picked me when we were at Hollyrood Deerhounds helping with puppy pictures from the Winery Litter.  She has fit in beautifully and is a lovely girl.  While we were only able to attend one show last year, we are hopeful that in 2022 we will be attending more and perhaps having a litter!


Dogs of our Past

We have been so blessed over the years to have so many amazing dogs in our lives. 

They are the result of so many breeders and fanciers that have gone before.  As we go forward, it's amazing to see some of them show up again in the generations we are producing.  So much joy and love to share and continue on with.

The litter arrived at Sunsetter ES!  

On June 15, 2011, there were 3 blue boys and 2 girls born.  Unfortunately one girl passed away soon after being born, so sharing the whelping box with her brothers Bruiser, JR and Repeat is an orange girl named Cathy. 

All of the puppies in this litter tested BAER clear in Saskatoon, SK, and are doing well.  I just added many pictures of them on their slideshow, and can't wait to go and see them in Winnipeg in August. Renee is a great mom, and Slide is a great dad.  Together we think they produced some nice puppies, all with good fronts. 


The litter has been futurity nominated and is all spoken for.
