At FitBark, we think of dog and human health as one. We couldn’t imagine a world where we push our bodies and watch our diets to get healthy, and leave the pets we love on a path to medical crisis - with minimal exercise and unrestricted access to food. That's why we are entirely dedicated to getting you and your pet healthy together. And making it fun!

Exercise

And you know who shares our mission? Animal Planet. With 54% of US dogs affected, obesity is the single largest epidemic facing our pets today. Watch how the FitBark platform helps get pets healthy in Animal Planet's new show “My Big Fat Pet Makeover.” And guess what? Clipping a FitBark to a pet's collar helps the humans in the show just as much as it benefits their pets!

Our friends at the Mayo Clinic also think of human and pet health as one. Learn about how they used the FitBark in a series of One Health studies to assess whether dogs disrupt human sleep. (Spoiler alert: For the most part, they don’t!)

So what is FitBark? It’s a small, colorful device that you attach to your dog’s collar. It monitors activity levels, quality of sleep, distance traveled, calories burned, and overall health and behavior 24/7.

We are now proud to introduce you to our latest addition to the family: the FitBark 2. The biggest upgrade with the FitBark 2 is a battery life up to 3.5 dog years (6 months), so you can worry less about recharging and more about bonding with your pup. It fits dogs of any size, and it loves the water as much as your dog does!

You can link it to your Fitbit, Apple Healthkit or Google Fit device (or just use your iOS or Android phone to track your steps) and chart progress side-by-side. Talk about motivation!

We built the FitBark 2 in collaboration with 45+ veterinary schools and research institutions that have been using our platform in clinical settings to address mobility issues, skin diseases, nutrition, cognition, vision and a wide variety of medical conditions.

A drop in the FitBark Health Index helps you catch early signs of discomfort or disease.

FitBark allows you to share your dog's information with your trainer or veterinarian to monitor orthopedic rehabilitation, osteoarthritis or changes in mobility.

Your pet's FitBark Sleep Score can help you track the development of skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis.

A quick look at activity levels after you leave home provides valuable clues about your dog's anxiety levels and how he or she is doing while you're away.

What do FitBark devices measure?

FitBark devices are research-grade dog activity and sleep monitors. They collect physical activity and rest levels 24/7, providing you and your family with unprecedented insights into dog health and behavior. Made in the shape of a tiny, stylish dog-bone, FitBark devices fit dogs of any size. If you and your family are serious about keeping your pet healthy, monitoring changes in behavior and sharing useful information with your veterinarian, look no fur-ther. Here are some of the metrics that FitBark devices track: Activity counts (BarkPoints) Rest, active and play time Nocturnal sleep score Overall health index Activity index Calorie burn Distance traveled In particular, FitBark devices are useful to monitor changes in mobility, anxiety and skin conditions.

What’s my FitBark device’s wireless range? How far can I be from my dog to sync?

Your FitBark device's sync range is about 30 feet (9 meters) from an iOS or Android mobile device, or a FitBark Wi-Fi Base Station. This range may be affected by several external factors. Your FitBark device stores your dog's activity and sleep information 24/7. A daily sync is recommended but not required.

What collars are compatible with FitBark 2?

FitBark 2 is compatible with collars not wider than 1.5" (38 mm). You'll get the most out of the experience if you leave a soft collar on your dog 24/7.

What’s included in the FitBark 2 box?

FitBark 2 Dog Activity Monitor Black Cover 8 Zip Ties You will require 2 every time you move your FitBark 2 to a different collar. Need more? Head over to our store and fetch a pack with 24 extra. Charging Cable Quick Start Guide

Are FitBark devices suitable for small size dogs?

Yes. FitBark devices are so tiny that they won't bother dogs of any size, including a 3-lb Chihuahua and a 200-lb Leonberger.

How do I fix a FitBark 2 on my dog’s collar?

Do FitBark devices have GPS?

No, or at least not yet. At FitBark, rather than answer the question "where is my dog?" we focus on health, activity, sleep and behavior. Our goal is to better understand our dogs. Our mission is to inspire a healthy lifestyle for dogs and humans. That’s why we designed an experience that is dynamic and has use throughout the day. And here’s what unique about us: through his or her FitBark, your dog anonymously contributes health and lifestyle data that helps all dogs and their owners live healthier lives. You can learn more about FitBark Explore here. If you’d like to be a part of something bigger, we’d love to hear from you. Note: while we continue to look at ways to introduce new sensors in the future, for now we’re extremely proud of FitBark’s tiny product size, form factor and battery life. Introducing a GPS sensor at this time would likely make our product 5-7 times as bulky.

What is the temperature operating range of FitBark devices?

Based on our previous experience with similar components and materials, our current assessment is the following: Operating temperature: -4°F to 122°F (-20°C to 50°C) Storage temperature: -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C)

Is it bad for my dog to have an electronic device so close to him?

FitBark devices emit less than 1/10,000th the amount of radiation from a cell phone, and a small fraction of what we humans get from using a Bluetooth headset. Our devices are FCC certified and well within the specifications followed by any other product considered to be safe.

Do FitBark devices have a heart rate monitor?

No, or at least not yet. While we continue to look at ways to introduce new sensors in the future, for now we’re extremely proud of FitBark’s tiny product size, form factor and battery life.

What do the FitBark 2 LEDs mean?

Under normal operating conditions, the FitBark’s LED is off. Here’s a description of what the various modes mean: FitBark powered with LED flashing (rapidly at 0.5 secs interval): the FitBark is in pairing mode and ready to be associated with any dog’s profile (if the FitBark isn’t already associated with an existing dog) FitBark powered with LED solid: battery fully charged FitBark powered with LED blinking slowly (10 seconds interval): battery is charging FitBark not powered with LED constantly blinking: error mode –> please contact us from the Support Chat in our mobile or web apps FitBark not powered with LED solid: error mode –> please contact us from the Support Chat in our mobile or web apps FitBark powered with LED completely OFF: please unplug and contact us from the Support Chat in our mobile or web apps

Do FitBark devices control barking?

Not really. FitBark devices are activity and sleep monitors. On a side note, plenty of exercise helps eliminate hyperactive, destructive, unruly and attention seeking behaviors that may or may not include excessive barking. In addition, if your dog tends to be anxious when left alone, FitBark helps you monitor how his activity and anxiety levels change during the hours after the separation. You can learn more here.

Is FitBark 2 waterproof?

Yes. FitBark 2’s waterproof specification is IPX67 (can be submerged up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes). After a day of fun playing in the water, remove the cover to make sure any water on the charging pins fully dries before putting it back on the FitBark 2.

Can I use FitBark devices on a harness?

FitBark devices are designed to be fixed on a dog collar. Wearing your FitBark device on a harness may reduce its activity and sleep tracking accuracy. If you use a harness to take your dog out for walks, we recommend that you keep your FitBark device on a light, soft collar that your dog can wear 24/7 and wear the harness on top of that.

Can I use one FitBark device on multiple dogs?

As a regular dog owner, we don't recommend this as you won’t get much value out of the platform if you don’t monitor your dog’s health, sleep and behavior 24/7. As a pet healthcare professional, we make it possible to cycle one FitBark device on multiple dogs if you're running a clinical study or are temporarily lending a unit to a client. Please make sure to create new dog profiles for each dog and "Assign New FitBark" when you want to associate a FitBark unit to an existing dog profile.

Can a cat wear a FitBark device? What about other animals?

Yes, but you won’t find much in terms of comparative norms and baselines. Please choose an animal within the "not a dog" list when you setup your FitBark device on a cat, bunny, pig, sheep, chicken, penguin, falcon, zebra or any other animal or human.

Since our launch in 2015, we have helped dogs and humans in 125+ countries get healthy together. Good dog people - our people - are everywhere!
