Sussex Spaniel

Ease of Training
Guard Dog


  • He originated in the county of Sussex, England in the 18th century
  • He was used to flush and retrieve birds during the hunt

Personality and Behavior

  • He's friendly, happy, and biddable
  • He's calm and unhurried
  • He loves being around his human family
  • He gets along very well with children
  • He gets along well with other dogs
  • He drools and slobbers everywhere
  • He likes to wander off after smells that interest him


  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).

Other varieties
