Dog Walker, Daycare & Boarding

Having FitBark we've realized how active Rex is. It explains why he's so tired and ready for a nap around 8:30 every night. We never realized he was so active or playing so much while we were out and about.

Dog Trainer's New Favorite Toy I've just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I'm excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor. First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I've yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great.

Dog Trainer’s New Favorite Toy

I’ve just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I’m excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor.
First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I’ve yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great. The best application i have found for my own dogs though, are the times when I am away and have to leave them in the care of someone else. I can monitor their activity and pair their FitBark devices with the dog sitter’s mobile device so that the individual can reference how much activity I expect from them in a clear way, without confusion or uncertainty. Furthermore, I’ve convinced a few clients to order these so that I can monitor their dogs to determine if they are doing the necessary amount of work needed to properly condition in obedience commands the way they are instructed to do so between lessons with me. The FitBark quantifies everything for them to help give a tangible goal to improve/maintain not only the physical health of their dog, but the dog’s mental health through training exercises. My clients tell me that FitBark helps keep them on track and I can see it for myself. My girlfriend loves my FitBark monitors too, as they allow her to see how much activity our dogs get by virtue of my full-time employment as an independent trainer. Of course, she teases me when “her” dog, ‘Chivo’, gets more points than “my” dog, ‘Jarvis’. All in all, the applications for a FitBark are endless and I can’t wait to see what other things people think of that I haven’t yet!

It's been a great device for keeping dog walkers honest. We had a well liked dog walker in our building we hired. His first walk was for an hour. Thanks to our FitBark we knew for a fact that this guy walked the dogs for all of 5 minutes over the course of an hour. It's nice to have the peace of mind that nobody is cheating your furry friend on their much needed play time.

Innovative Product, Simple to Use This is certainly dog data tracking done right. The device is simple to use and super small. The app is simple to use and rich with features and data. The base station is simple to setup and does all the work for you. I really love how this is helping me to measure my pups activity level during times where I am trusting others with his care and when he is alone.

Cool little gadget Cool little gadget. Very handy for me as I have various people who help me out with walking my dog so I can easily keep track of how much exercise he gets each day.

It works just as it says it does, and it's super easy to use! Smaller than I expected too! I have two things to say- first, the device and the app does everything it claims to do. I bought it to better understand my Miniature Labradoodle's activity behavior, especially at daycare when we don't know what she really does there. It was a snap to set up, and it really works. I find myself taking her for walks more just because I'm now accountable for her activity levels. The app works great, but like all apps, I'm sure it will... Fetch More

I have two things to say- first, the device and the app does everything it claims to do.

I find myself taking her for walks more just because I’m now accountable for her activity levels. The app works great, but like all apps, I’m sure it will continue to get better. It even interfaces with FitBit somehow. Second, the device is smaller and lighter than I expected, which is largely my fault because there are plenty of pictures showing it on other dogs, etc.
Bottom line- it works, it’s fun, and it provides me with useful data for my dog and me. I haven’t tried any of the competing products out there, but after having such a great experience with this one, why would I?

Awesome! This thing is great. If you don't get to spend all day with your dog, this little gadget will tell you everything you need to know about how much activity your dog is getting. Setup is intuitive and straightforward. Syncing is as easy as breathing. True to the advertisement, it's very much waterproof (my wife ran it through the wash before I was able to get it strapped to the collar!). The accuracy is quite impressive as well. I was skeptical, so I sampled a few hours while I watched my dog closely. Sure enough, the FitBark was accurate... Fetch More

I was skeptical, so I sampled a few hours while I watched my dog closely. Sure enough, the FitBark was accurate down to the minute showing me when my dog was playing, just active but not playing, and resting. As it turns out, he rotates between the three all day and night and gets an incredible amount of exercise that I had no idea he was getting.

There is some room for improvement, but I’m confident FitBark will continue to roll out improvements. I, as do all FitBark users, look forward to the breed info module. I have had a couple of errors, but nothing serious or irrecoverable. Lastly, I would be interested in a slightly heavier duty version that comes in an extended battery life. 2 weeks is great… but 4 would be even greater 🙂

Excellent device for tracking dogs activity! The FitBark and app was very easy to configure. It has been great to see the difference in his activity on the days he goes to daycare vs. the days he stays home. It is easy to charge and does not require removing from his collar.

Great product, awesome customer service! We picked up this activity monitor a few weeks ago to see how much exercise our pooch was getting with their walker. This device is tiny and actually provides us with more info than we would have anticipated. Plus, it keeps us honest and motivated to get my pup out and about. The interface is good, not great, but fitbark are working on making it more user friendly -- I know this bc fitbark actively solicited my feedback and explained the app's feature.

We picked up this activity monitor a few weeks ago to see how much exercise our pooch was getting with their walker.

The interface is good, not great, but fitbark are working on making it more user friendly — I know this bc fitbark actively solicited my feedback and explained the app’s feature. A good friend has the whistle but I was never convinced, esp after reading reviews. So happy I went with my gut and tried out this new product.
