Chris (Clyde’s owner) talks about the specialty win. “The specialty was very challenging. It had all the ingredients that a solid trial should have. Really Clyde ran the best that I have seen him run to date. Both open and amateur were tough tests with 2 retired on land and water. The blinds were tough both water and land. No tricks here. Just very challenging blinds that tested both dog and handler. Clyde was a real team player and ran beautifully throughout the entire trial.He handled on the very last bird he picked up of the entire trial in the open. Other than that he was pretty much clean through the whole weekend. Ended with the Amateur win and an Open jam. What a ride.”
Clyde is a stylish dark red golden with lots of intelligence, drive and desire. Totally amateur trained and trialed. He was purchased out of a litter from NY bred by Lester Freer.
