Purina Farms has a staff of trainers who devote their time and energy to discovering the amazing things dogs can achieve. Whether for diving dog, agility, or flying disc, their trainers use their knowledge to teach dogs a wide range of skills and keep them in top physical condition.
Purina Pro Plan wanted to share that knowledge with everyone by developing an app, called P5, which would make dog training easier and more fun. So they asked the trainers about the best skills to teach a dog, and how to make training your dog at home easier. The Purina app developers weren't surprised to discover that the trainers had a lot to say.
When they asked trainers how to teach a dog exciting skills like catching a flying disc, they made recommendations about the kind of conditioning a dog needs before he can jump into intense canine sports. That's why P5 includes things like running and strength training in addition to flying disc, diving dog and agility. The trainers also told app developers that basic obedience is the key to success in almost every other skill, so P5 features lessons that share the basics of working with your dog on simple commands.
And after all that planning, the trainers even starred in the videos that bring P5 to life. With the help of their own dogs, all of whom were adopted from rescues and shelters around the country, they used Purina Farms to rehearse and film each video's lessons, breaking them down into simple steps that work for almost every dog.
The P5 app provides a unique way for dogs to learn new and exciting skills, and Purina Pro Plan is proud to share the expert knowledge of our trainers with dog owners everywhere.
