Our Current Competition Dogs
are a RARE sporting dog best characterized by a beautiful golden liver color and rather massive, long and low body frame. Although they were one of the original ten AKC breeds, Sussex registrations  usually rank  in the bottom ten of all the registered breeds.

My background is with hunting and field bred dogs and it was at a hunt test back in 1999 that I fell in love with the first Sussex Spaniel I ever met, I knew I would own one someday! I hit the ground running with my first Sussex, Maverick, winning 6 Owner Handler Best in Shows, multiple sporting group placements and consistent national rankings. Both of my males have received Top 5 Westminster invitations, and Marv is a breeder/owner-handled National Best of Opposite Sex (BOSS) winner.

I enjoy training and competing to the highest levels in AKC Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Hunt Test, Tracking,  and Barn Hunt events all over the US. My little brown dogs love learning new things, and with patience and persistence, Sussex can make wonderful and rewarding versatile companion dogs!

We occasionally have well bred puppies from champion, health screened parents.
