Living Area: Sussex Spaniels can adapt to both the indoors and the outdoors. And they can very well live in apartments as well. However, they are characteristically active dogs, and they should be given sufficient exercise as they tend to gain weight fairly quickly. As one of the spaniel breeds, they feel more comfortable when they are in the outdoors, but they can be equally happy inside the house. Sussex spaniels can also live in a doghouse located in the garden or backyard, but it is essential to ensure that they have a temperate place to sleep. Even an undersized backyard will do, with a little space for them to walk about.

About this Breed

Sussex spaniel is a strong, medium sized dog. In fact, the Sussex spaniel can be classified as the stockiest of all spaniels. It has a long muscular body with a wide skull. The shape of its head is rather broad and long, with a deep recess in the middle. The eyes of the Sussex spaniel are hazel in color and they bear a serene expression, probably because they are somewhat droopy. Its ears are quite large, and they hang down to the level of the jaw. A standard ear of a Sussex spaniel should stick closely to its body and not too wavy. The overall structure of the face should have a strong and yet gentle expression. Some people even remarked that they see some kind of sadness on the face of a Sussex spaniel. The tail never goes above the body level and it is usually parallel to the ground when the dog is excited. And it is well-known that the Sussex spaniel moves its tail a lot. The body is proportionately long, and the ideal height is no more than 16 inches. Sussex spaniels have short fore legs and long hind legs, with rather large bones in the feet and short feathery hair between the toes. The ideal color of the coat should be golden liver with the tips of the fur swaying to a more golden persuasion.
