We live in the New Forest, England with our family kennel of Sussex Spaniels. Mostly they spend a lot of time being much loved pets.
We enjoy walks on the Forest throughout the year and attend Dog Shows.
The Sussex have great characters but are not necessarily the right dog for everyone. However, they make us laugh most days.
Sussex Spaniels are active and healthy dogs but need plenty of socialisation. The Sussex Spaniel is not a "toy" breed and they are about 15-16" in height; strong and well boned. An adult will weigh 45-50lbs.
They usually have a natural working ability and Owners should be prepared to carry out fair and patient training, to direct the dogs' energy to suit their lifestyle.
The Sussex Spaniel is a Vulnerable British Breed with small numbers bred
