One of the highlights of this year’s Camphire International Horse Trials and Country Fair which takes place on the Bank Holiday weekend on the Camphire Estate, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford is the GAIN sponsored Dog Show.


This year GAIN Pet Food have partnered with the My Canine Companion which provides highly trained and skilled service dogs to people with disabilities, particularly Autism.  My Canine Companion trains dogs to assist children and young adults living with Autism. They are committed to training the dogs to the highest level so that these dogs become a companion and support to both children and adults with autism helping them gain independence, companionship and safety through the provision of highly trained and skilled Service Dogs.   As a small organisation, My Canine Companion provides an outstanding, customised and individualised service which meets the needs of each individual client. Their Service Dogs are fully trained to the standard of Assistance Dogs Europe, (ADEu).  Each Service Dog costs the charity just over €10,000 to train. The period of training covers the two years from birth right through to graduation as a Service Dog.  These Service Dogs make dramatic differences’ in the quality of life for children and adults with Autism and their families.


The GAIN Dog Show which takes place at 1.30pm in Camphire on Sunday, 31st July, with a variety of classes should once again prove a huge hit for all the family showcasing all breeds, shapes and sizes.  All prizes are sponsored by GAIN Pet Food so all money raised from the show goes directly to this very worthy cause – Service Dogs will be making a special ‘VIP’ appearance on the day showcasing the great work they do.


Registration will take place on the day and entry fee is €4 per class.
