ST. LOUIS–Purina has introduced Purina Pro Plan P5, a free mobile app that gives dog owners mobile lessons in agility, dock diving, flying disc, obedience, running and strength training. The app is part of the Purina Pro SPORT product launch and is available for free.
Purina Pro Plan P5 allows dog owners to set, track and share personalized fitness goals for their dogs based on breed, weight and body condition. Once users set a goal, they can develop a weekly training plan comprising a combination of high/low impact activity, agility and obedience training sessions.
"More and more people are taking part in activities such as 5Ks and half marathons, and more of them want to exercise with their dogs," said Robert Tochterman, brand manager of Purina Pro Plan. "There are already many performance nutrition products to help people excel in sport. By giving dogs the right kind of nutrition, we can help promote their athletic abilities in the same way."
"This combination of nutrition and the P5 app gives dog owners the support they need to lead their dogs on their personal journey to greatness," Tochterman added.
