Dillon was the epitome of a show dog much like his parents. Cody was Number One All Breeds In Canada and Daisy did everything with style, enthusiasm and dedication.
Dillon's first show as a puppy netted him Best of Breed and First in the Sporting Group. He gained another group placement to finish his Championship at 8 months. His puppy career gained him 10 Best Puppy In Shows and at the same time collecting 13 Group Placements with 4 of them group ones!
His first visit to US shows earned him 2 Best of Breeds and a Group placement and two weeks later he entered the ESSFTA US Nationals in which from the puppy class he was Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best Puppy in National Specialty under Janet Wilcox. To finish his US title he went Winners Dog undefeated in the classes and twice Best of Winners 4 straight days at the competitive shows in Wine Country NY.

1998 Dillon began the year with his First Back To Back Best in Shows and 5 Group ones in a row. A total of 3 Bests, 38 Group Placements of which 11 were Group First netted Dillon Number One Springer and Number Seven in the Sporting Group. He also won the Bytown English Springer Spaniel Specialy show.
