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 🙂

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.

Super product Fitbark isn't just for super athletic dogs, it's great for medium to low energy pups like ours! It's a great tool to make sure our fluff ball/couch potato gets enough time on his paws. It is especially helpful to know how much exercise he's gotten at doggy daycare so we can make sure to supplement his fun as needed when he gets home. One thing we've found is that if our dog pulls or puts too much tension on his collar, the Fitbark won't bounce around much and only registers a brisk walk as "activity" and not as... Fetch More

Fitbark isn’t just for super athletic dogs, it’s great for medium to low energy pups like ours! It’s a great tool to make sure our fluff ball/couch potato gets enough time on his paws. It is especially helpful to know how much exercise he’s gotten at doggy daycare so we can make sure to supplement his fun as needed when he gets home.

One thing we’ve found is that if our dog pulls or puts too much tension on his collar, the Fitbark won’t bounce around much and only registers a brisk walk as “activity” and not as “play”. For pullers, use a harness for walks so the Fitbark can do its job on a tension free collar.

We really like Fitbark and highly recommend it to other dog owners.

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... Fetch More

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!

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

Amazing product, support and service! We bought this on a whim in boxing sale mode. What a great purchase this was! Really fun to watch how our dog spends his day and to use it to compare one day's activity to the next. If you are worried about tech support don't. If only every company supported their product the way FitBark does. I had a couple of questions and they responded in record time. I have never done a product review before but these people deserve it. Above and beyond.
