Overview
A calm and usually collected breed, the Sussex Spaniel are regularly used for hunting. An intelligent dog that is well adapted to retrieving and hunting, but is usually steady and gentle. Very social dogs, this breed is very devoted to his work and master.
Character
The Sussex Spaniel must be socialized well at puppyhood to be good around other dogs. This dog makes a good companion and is surprisingly friendly with cats and smaller pets. Can become aggressive around other unfamiliar dogs, but if properly introduced they can do well.

Does your Sussex Spaniel bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Sussex Spaniel can be good around children, but if overly pestered, this breed can snap. Somewhat of a lazy dog, they are protective of their home and will bark upon seeing a stranger. This breed should not be put in a home with unfamiliar smaller animals as they have a strong hunting instinct.
Care
The medium length coat of this breed should be brushed and/or combed regularly. The Sussex Spaniel is prone to ear infections and dirty ears so ear cleaning is of significant importance. Plucking dead hair is recommended and should be performed only by someone experienced.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Sussex Spaniel has a flat and usually dark colored medium length coat that should be only slightly wavy, never curled. Hair on the hindquarters is long and feathered.
Training
The Sussex Spaniel is used for hunting and sport purposes and does remarkably well. Training must be consistent however as this can be a rather lazy and uninterested breed. A quick learner, this dog also can be willful and independent so firm training is a must. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Sussex Spaniel puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Sussex Spaniel commonly battles weight problems so he should have sufficient exercise daily. Swimming and retrieving are sports this breed really enjoys. This dog does okay without a yard but loves a brisk run. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Anonymous asked:
Can Sussex Spaniels be good with an inside cat that is calm and sleeps with the owner, or do they need all the attention? My mom wants a dog and she is at the age where she is not the most active person, but she would still take it to the dog beach, that's the most playful time it would get besides being inside playing. She has had spaniels all her life and really wants a dog, is this too much dog or what kind of spaniel would you recommend for a middle aged fifty-year-old? Thank you.

Since your mother is not very active, I would suggest a rescued adult or late-adult dog to begin with. A dog that doesn't need a lot of exercise and has lived in a home before. The Sussex Spaniel would do fine as an adult or late-adult in that kind of home. So would a Cocker Spaniel and the Clumber Spaniel.

We have a sussex puppy and he is curious, but respectful toward our 15 year old cat. The pup does get jealous of the cat, though. Typically there is a 12-24 month wait for a sussex puppy.

The Sussex Spaniel is a rarer breed of dog and can be difficult to find a breeder in your area. But the average price for a puppy is between $1500.00 - $2000.00, but every breeder is different and will price their puppies differently.
