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


FitBark Bluetooth only devices (original FitBark and FitBark 2) 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, IC and CE certified and well within the specifications followed by any other product considered to be safe.

The FitBark GPS has similar emission rates most of the time since, when in a Safe Place, it prioritizes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi over Cellular. When outside of a Safe Place and not Bluetooth connected to an owner’s smartphone, the FitBark GPS connects to Verizon’s low power Cat-M network, which is designed for IoT products and uses minimal power to communicate with our servers (about 1/100th the amount of radiation of a modern smartphone).
