 PULLER SKILLS
 

Most of the problems faces dog owners are aggression, damaging of belongings, misplaced energy and drive in your dog, illness, including diseases of musculoskeletal system and obesity. Most problems are cause mainly by one reason – lack of physical and psycho – emotional activity. The uniqueness of the PULLER is that it is able to provide the necessary workout and at the same time a dog owner will not spend more time on training. Once you learn how to utilize the PULLER to it’s full potential your will be able to exercise your dog under 20 minutes in and outdoors providing a full workout and tired dog!
