How does a Sussex Spaniel act? Like, does he need to be walked multiple times a day or is it a dog that might just snuggle up with you?

Your main question is about the personality of the dog. Each dog, as it is with each person has his/her own personality. It is derived from both the genetics of the parents and grandparents of the dog; but also by the training and socialization that the dog gets as he/she is growing up. The Sussex Spaniel is a 4 out of 7 on the exercise scale, meaning that the dog will need sufficient exercise with an average of about an hour a day. Half an hour in the morning and then again in the afternoon or evening would be best. Young dogs are going to need more exercise than an older dog. As for cuddling and hanging out on the couch with you, this breed tends to be happy to do that with its owner as long as the dog has had some exercise already.

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.
