As part of the Purina Pro Plan's P5 launch, football legend Daryl 'Moose' Johnston has teamed up with Purina Pro Plan to give his dog Gunner, a 3-year-old yellow Labrador, a chance to shine on the field.
"If it wasn't for my trainers and teammates, I never would have had the opportunity to win three Super Bowls," said Johnston, three-time Super Bowl Champion with the Dallas Cowboys and current pro football analyst. "Now I can be Gunner's trainer and teammate using my Purina Pro Plan P5 app. He gets the same joy out of training that I had during my playing days and it's motivated me to get out and be more active with him."
Johnston, who began training Gunner with the P5 app in early January, has been amazed with Gunner's increased activity and progress in sport and agility training.
"I always knew Gunner was a great dog; I never knew he was this great. His progress is incredible," added Johnston.Johnston and Gunner will showcase the power of the Purina Pro Plan P5 app at the "Canine Combine," a football inspired performance and training exhibition, with renowned Purina Pro Plan dog trainer John Casey, in New Orleans on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at the Westin Hotel parking lot located at 100 Rue Iberville adjacent to Waldenberg Park. The event is free to the public and will kick-off at 11 AM CT. Purina Pro Plan SPORT was created by pet nutritionists and performance experts who truly understand an active dog's nutritional needs. The range comprises three different formulas: Purina Pro Plan SPORT ACTIVE, for dogs that exercise regularly; Purina Pro Plan SPORT ADVANCE, for more athletic dogs; and Purina Pro Plan SPORT PERFORMANCE, for those dogs taking part in competition and/or training to compete.
