Dog Walker, Daycare & Boarding

Loving our FitBarks! Everyone is getting fit with this device 🙂 We've had our 55lb SharPei/Pointer mix on for a few months now and have enjoyed it so much I've ordered them for my Mom's and Sister's dogs. We've also convinced friends to get their pooch's on and are now having friendly competitions with our mutts. We've gone through a number of human fitness trackers and generally lost interest but surprisingly having our dog kitted up has kept us active daily making sure she gets out and hits our goals.

Loving our FitBarks! Everyone is getting fit with this device 🙂

We’ve had our 55lb SharPei/Pointer mix on for a few months now and have enjoyed it so much I’ve ordered them for my Mom’s and Sister’s dogs. We’ve also convinced friends to get their pooch’s on and are now having friendly competitions with our mutts. We’ve gone through a number of human fitness trackers and generally lost interest but surprisingly having our dog kitted up has kept us active daily making sure she gets out and hits our goals. Even our friend who’s not big on exercising himself it getting out every day and tossing a ball until his dog hits his points. Love that each dog gets point goals based on breeds (primary and secondary), age and weight. Love being able to comment, post pics, likes, etc. on our and our friends profiles. Now that we’re all sharing our pups profiles it’s led to a great group all encouraging (and competing ;)) each other to keep our dogs active. The upshot is that it’s keeping each of us active as well. We’re now doing hikes with our pups and other puppy playdates regularly.

The app is simple and fun to use. Device size makes it suitable for any size dog from toy to Great Dane. Set up was easy, even for my 80yr old MamaBear. Excited to see how our dog compares to other similar dogs when that feature is working.

We now have more than half a dozen family and friends on FitBark and would recommend it to anyone who wants insight into the health and activity of their dogs. As a side benefit it’ll get you more active as well.

Update: We recently had to travel for a couple of days and left our dog at a kennel. It was super insightful to see how much activity she got there. When we told the Kennel owner she was over her daily goal every day she said she’d start recommending them to her other clients. She’s always touted how much playtime and exercise the dogs get there and now she has hard data she can show owners.

Highly recommended.

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.

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 🙂

Small and easy to use I have a Shih Tzu and was worried the Fitbark would be bulky around his neck. I didn't need to worry as its really small and quite discreet. It doesn't bother him at all. The app was easy to install however takes some playing about with to get best out of product. However the basics of the product are really easy to navigate. The product does what it says on the tin and we find it interesting especially looking at our dog's sleeping habits. If you're curious as to whether your dog is getting enough... Fetch More

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.

Changed Pippie’s life I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day.

Changed Pippie’s life

I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day. If she hasn’t her activity levels are way down and her rest is way up. Last week I even got an alert that “Pippie is resting more than normal, is she ok?” She had already had her medication that day so, I made an appointment with our Vet and showed her the Fitbark app and Pippie’s play and rest times. First, my Vet asked where he could get one and I also showed him how I could share Pippie’s information with him to help keep an eye on her. He adjusted her medication and my girl is back up to her normal playful self. Pippie loves Fitbark, thank you!!!

My Furry Fitness Star - thanks to FitBark! I LOVE this device! I'm an active person and enjoy using my fitness tracker to watch for patterns and keep up healthy competition with myself.

My Furry Fitness Star – thanks to FitBark!

I LOVE this device! I’m an active person and enjoy using my fitness tracker to watch for patterns and keep up healthy competition with myself. This FitBark allows the furriest member of my family to participate in the fun as well and it has given me much more insight into my dog’s health and activity levels…which leads to her happiness! I think of Reina as a very active dog and she definitely is when I’m around, but this lets me know when she’s sleeping more often or perhaps is less active than normal. I’m then prompted and motivated to take her on a walk or get a new toy out to play with. I love her so much and I, of course want her to be happy & healthy. This little gadget is awesome for that and the journal portion of the app helps me capture the fun times and remember the important stuff. Couldn’t ask for more!
