Clay has been active in running dogs for the last 30 years. He has had numerous dogs place in national championships. Clay has judged 5 Nationals in Canada and the United States. Early in his career, he competed exclusively with Labradors in field trials to which he is actively returning. He is the owner and guide of a licensed waterfowl operation in Saskatchewan, where he grew up and developed his passion for dogs. Clay and his wife, Karen, make their home on a farm in Southwestern Ontario. Their property has been developed with the training of Labradors and Springer Spaniels in mind. Fields have been planted that support the development of flushing dogs and a technical pond has been created to facilitate water training.
