    I have no idea.  I would have to do the research & that is something that you can do yourself.  This is the world wide web & Australia is a very very long way away from where I live.  Look locally instead of world wide.

    Look online for Irish Setters with ADVANCED hunting TITLES or who are FIELD TRIAL champions in your country.  If all else fails - you can import such a dog from UK or USA.  If you have an Aussie parent breed club; start there.

    Why don't you approach a reputable experienced breeder and ask.   But tread carefully because those who care about their chosen breed, don't like varieties that take any breed away from it's Breed Standard.   There shouldn't be any difference between a show and a working Irish other than the exaggerated coat!

    Have you thought about looking for a Toller (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever)?  They may not be common on Australia however?

    Get a pit bull. Much better. My big strong American Staffordshire bull terrier can kill anything and everything he wants to. Be tough get a pit.
