In the 1700s, English county sportsmen from Sussex developed a spaniel, whose short legs and thick torso plowed through the area's heavy clay soil, dense underbrush and thick hedgerows to hunt winged game. Were compatible with. Because the dog was built so low and the cover so high, Sussex developed barking and barking language to mark its location for human predators. And to this day, Sussex is more vocal than other Spaniels.
