Exercise & Preventative Care

Awesome little activity monitor! I've had my FitBark now for about a year. It works great. I can see my dogs activity (or lack there of) level. It automatically syncs when the app is open and in close proximity (10-15ft) to my dog. About a month ago it broke. My dog was marking a bone and I think rubbed on it a little too roughly. I contacted thier support staff and Sara was very nice and offered me a replacement device at no cost. She included a RMA slip so I could return the broken devise to them. I have... Fetch More

I’ve had my FitBark now for about a year. It works great. I can see my dogs activity (or lack there of) level. It automatically syncs when the app is open and in close proximity (10-15ft) to my dog. About a month ago it broke. My dog was marking a bone and I think rubbed on it a little too roughly. I contacted thier support staff and Sara was very nice and offered me a replacement device at no cost. She included a RMA slip so I could return the broken devise to them. I have seen this company grow in terms of what their product and the app offer. I am very impressed with both their product and their staff. As more dogs are using FitBark the averages (daily activity) for breed and size of dog keep getting better. They also recently added an option where you can sync your fitbit within FitBark. this way you can see your activity right next to your dog’s on a daily basis.

I had some problems with the initial install and their support chat was very quick, helpful and thorough. Now that the FitBark is working, I love the insight it gives me into my puppy's life.

I’ve also noticed that she doesn’t behave well if she doesn’t get enough exercise OR if she gets too much! I can check her FitBark and realize she’s just had enough of a day and it’s time for bed. The FitBark holds a charge for quite some time, is easy to use and sturdy. I love my FitBark.

This is super helpful since we have three dogs ranging from 3 months to 10 years and they obviously require different levels of playtime. If you're looking for an activity tracker for your dog this is the best one on the market.

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

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.

Terrific App, Device and Service Helps us see when our younger Vizsla is active, playing or sleeping. We can crank up more active state to tone him up. Nice to share with whole family and we have idea what he's doing when we are not at home. Now to their service. I admit, I'm a techie type. Had problems setting up the FitBark and instantly was talking to the service people LIVE. Turns out that I made a mistake in setting up family accounts. They patiently and quick resolved the issue. Never experienced this level of service "after the sale".... Fetch More

Turns out that I made a mistake in setting up family accounts. They patiently and quick resolved the issue. Never experienced this level of service “after the sale”. Sure, the photography online stores will talk to you about buying but after the fact tech support is “meh”. FitBark has raised the bar!!! My dog adds “4 Paws Up”!

Big Fan of Fitbark aka fitbit for dogs I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing.

Big Fan of Fitbark aka fitbit for dogs

I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing.

I was lucky enough to acquire a Fitbark by a chance encounter at SXSW this past Spring. I’ve been using it ever since then and have nothing but great things to say.

I’ve found several uses for Fitbark. For one, it helps my dog stay healthy in terms of exercise. In the past there were many times when I would only walk my dog for bathroom breaks, but thanks to Fitbark, I can see how long of a walk I need to take to ensure he gets the amount of energy required. Secondly, I’ve started to notice when Trevor has nighttime activity, which I can then map back to lack of exercise or him eating other types of foods. Finally it helps me monitor Trevor’s separation anxiety. Whenever I leave the house, he’s super active until he settles down. Thanks to Fitbark, I learned that the anxiety got better over time. That’s a great thing to know for any caring dog owner.

The app is pretty slick, it shows you your dog’s activity over days and weeks. All in all it’s a great way to improve your dog’s health.

I'd like to say thank you to the people behind it! As a dog obedience trainer I can't think of anything more fun and awesome for our dog. It's very assuring to know my dog is resting after her big plays and obedience training days as well as her long walks.

Fitbark is simple yet, powerful active tracker and measurement tool for better canine physical health. It will be a great resource for all, dogs and owners, to be more active - and healthier.

Fantastic App, great customer service! With the latest update, the folks at fitbark made an already great app fantastic. We have three fitBark dogs and at a glance we can see if they are getting enough sleep and exercise. It's very easy to dive in to get more data on a particular dog or look at larger trends, like sleep over the past month. We really love the new Top Dog Board which ranks our pups in the house by activity. It also provides stats on similar dogs so you know how you're dogs doing in comparison. This is super...

Great device and awesome app I've ordered four FitBarks now, two for my dogs and two to give as gifts. Needless to say, I couldn't be happier. This is one of those products that deserves two separate reviews, because there are really two different parts: an app and the device itself. I gave it 5 stars overall because the device has exceeded my expectations. The app is good and keeps getting regular updates with fun new features. Also noteworthy - the customer service is tremendous. Like, the best I've ever encountered for any company (and I don't say that lightly).... Fetch More

Great device and awesome app

I’ve ordered four FitBarks now, two for my dogs and two to give as gifts. Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier. This is one of those products that deserves two separate reviews, because there are really two different parts: an app and the device itself. I gave it 5 stars overall because the device has exceeded my expectations. The app is good and keeps getting regular updates with fun new features. Also noteworthy – the customer service is tremendous. Like, the best I’ve ever encountered for any company (and I don’t say that lightly).
Part 1, the device
Things I love: it’s smaller and lighter than it looks. It’s highly durable. Lola, my beagle/boxer mix isn’t kind to it. Between playing rough with others at the dog park and occasional swims in a nearby creek, our fitbark has seen its share of mistreatment. After nearly 8 months, the FitBark not only functions, but still looks very good with only a few light scratches. I’m averaging a little over a week between charges. It is very convenient to charge also, because you don’t have to take it off the collar.
The app:
Initial setup was easy. The design is unique, intuitive, and I figured out the basics after a few minutes of playing with it. It keeps updating every month or two with new features. Most recently (and my favorite part) they added a “top dog” leaderboard to follow other dogs and compete or compare activity.
Bottom Line: I’m a non-tech savvy dog lover and I use FitBark literally every day. I can honestly say it has made me a much better dog parent and I highly recommend it. It’s one of those things I didn’t know I needed and now can’t live without.
