Sussex Spaniels are slower and less playful than other spaniels, but they still need lots of exercise. They're sometimes aggressive with other dogs and difficult to housebreak. Sussex spaniels love to howl.
Sussex Spaniels are sporting dogs. In general, sporting dogs are active and alert and require daily exercise. Because they have superior instincts in the water and woods, sporting dogs are often used for hunting. If exercised and properly trained, most sporting dogs make excellent pets. However, some of these dogs like to bark and whine a lot, so they're not suited for apartment life.
