Dog Walker, Daycare & Boarding

Fantastic product Device and app are working great for me and my dog. I can keep track of my dog's activity, and when and for how long my dog walker took care of my dog while I am away. I had some issues setting up the connection between the device and my phone in the beginning. But the support team was very helpful in walking me through all the steps and going above and beyond their duty figuring out that ... my phone OS needed to be updated. 🙂 While the device is very light and fits any dogs size,...

While the device is very light and fits any dogs size, the battery lasts for a very long time (about 2 weeks) and re-charging it takes only the time your dog takes a quick nap.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and would definitely recommend it to any dog owner.

Great tech item My dog is literally rocking the "rest" fitbarks!! Seriously the average target "fitbarks" for my Golden based on his age and size is a good guide and my kids are now not cutting his walks short! No wonder he sleeps a lot during the day he does have some restless nights. So far enjoying it, it is easy to set up the app and gadget.

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.

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.

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.

I find this super helpful to see if she's had enough exercise, or is due for more. I can see if she just slept all day or if she played or was taken for a walk while I was at work. It is helping me and my family change OUR habits to help her 🙂

Yep. This is what I needed So here's the deal. My sister runs a pet sitting/nannying company in LA. Which means a lot of dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, a lot of whom are used to pretty good lifestyles. I live up north and go to visit her every few months, and when I do I love to join her at "work" while she "has to" hang out with furry animals all day. I had some dogs and cats growing up. But working with my sister has opened my eyes to a lot of new things. Like how many animals sit... Fetch More

So here’s the deal. My sister runs a pet sitting/nannying company in LA. Which means a lot of dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, a lot of whom are used to pretty good lifestyles. I live up north and go to visit her every few months, and when I do I love to join her at “work” while she “has to” hang out with furry animals all day.

I had some dogs and cats growing up. But working with my sister has opened my eyes to a lot of new things. Like how many animals sit at home all day while their owners are away, in various conditions. Some have big cushy couches they aren’t allowed to sit on, others are in kennels (which I do not support).

They do all have one thing in common: they are alone a large chunk of their lives, or at least with other animals but not their owners. And because they can’t speak it’s hard to know if they got enough exercise that day, if they’re sitting down too much, not playing, feeling sick. I’d tried FitBit and Jawbone Up and all sorts of wearables for myself but I returned all of them.

Then we got our own dog. I cannot say how glad I am I didn’t return the FitBark like I did with those devices for myself. I realized the difference is I know how I’m feeling but I don’t know how Toby’s feeling. And working with my sister has taught me that animals do exhibit body language, but that can’t/doesn’t tell the whole story. And working with trainers I’ve learned you need a degree to parse your dog’s body language anyway 😉

I will never go back to not putting a doggie tracker on Toby. I don’t think I’m the only one who’d pay anything for my dog 😉 Any little bit more I can relate to him and know he’s living a great life I will do. It did take a bit of adjusting the levels on the FitBark and I keep forgetting about the battery reminders but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I love my Toby. Worth it. Very worth it.

Easy to setup I love all the color options!! Easy to set up! Nice knowing how active my dog is in doggy day care while I'm at work!!

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 🙂

Your Dog Will Thank You This is a fun product that keeps us honest about getting enough playtime in with our golden retriever. I had an incident with the product only a week after purchasing it - our dog went swimming with it on and it would not work after that. When I contacted the Fitbark folks, they immediately arranged to send me a new one - really great customer service. The new one has held up during swimming and has provided us with some good information that will help us keep our guy healthy. They just added a feature... Fetch More

Your Dog Will Thank You

This is a fun product that keeps us honest about getting enough playtime in with our golden retriever. I had an incident with the product only a week after purchasing it – our dog went swimming with it on and it would not work after that. When I contacted the Fitbark folks, they immediately arranged to send me a new one – really great customer service. The new one has held up during swimming and has provided us with some good information that will help us keep our guy healthy. They just added a feature that shows average statistics for dogs similar to mine, which is pretty interesting. You can also now choose one of three levels for your dog’s daily goal for fitness points – it’s a nice option to have. Henry the Golden has gotten much more exercise on a more consistent basis since we got the Fitbark. It makes us take him for an extra half mile, or throw the ball a half dozen more times. It also helps us see that doggie day care really is worth it! Henry doesn’t even notice that he’s wearing the Fitbark, but he is loving the effects of it!
