The P5 app is the next generation of dog training technology that offers dog owners of all breeds and sizes specialized mobile lessons in agility, dock diving, flying disc, obedience, running and strength training and is available for free via the Apple App Store. "We believe that inside every good dog is a great dog," said Heather Gettys, brand director at Purina Pro Plan. "Every dog has an incredible natural talent just waiting to be discovered, and if you invest the time and effort using the app, you will experience the satisfaction and pride that comes with helping your dog unleash that talent."
