Titus is out of two or our own dogs, Ch Wil-Oroin’s Past Present ‘N Future (Mona) and Ch. Wil-Oroin’s Northern Exposure (Lewis). Titus has been their shining star. He is off to a very promising specials career that already includes multiple Best in Shows and multiple Specialty Best in Shows. He also has two Best of Breeds at the Westminster Kennel Club show (2010 and 2011). Titus got his specials career off to a blazing start with a Best in Show in his second weekend out as a special. 

 

Titus win again at Westminster

 

Titus finished 2010 as the #1 English Springer Spaniel dog in both breed and all-breed competition.  He is off to another promising start in 2011.  He continues to excel in the ring while impressing everyone with his wonderful personality and is also off to a great start as a producer. 
 

Titus is co-owned by Laurie Green, Erline Jesseman, and Janice & Erica Johnson. He is expertly handled by Jody Paquette.

Welcome to Wil-Orion!
Millie's 2006 Litter at Eight Weeks

Thanks for visiting our site. It's an exciting time at Wil-Orion as we celebrate 40 years of breeding, training, and exhibiting English Springer Spaniels. We take great pride in our breeding program, our goal having always been to honor the rich heritage of these dogs as companions in the field and home.

We are a family operation – three generations of owner-breeder-handlers – who are committed to making a lasting, positive contribution to the breed. Across our 40-year history we have produced over 100 champions, with dozens of standouts going on to multiple breed, group, specialty, and best-in-show wins. Many of our dogs have also excelled in agility, obedience, field trial, and therapy work. Over the years, our dogs have become the foundation for several kennels, including CrownRoyal, Cedarwood, Spellbound, Springbrook, Springwest, Tagalong, McD's and Hirdler Hill.

Our focus has always been to produce dogs conforming to the breed standard, maintaining correct type and sound temperament. This focus has resulted in strikingly sweet, healthy and handsome dogs, well-balanced in appearance and with easy, flowing movement. All (usually sooner than later) have warmed ours and their owners' couches, and most have successfully charmed their way into the softest beds. Which is just as it should be.
