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.

This is a great product to keep an eye on your dog's activity ... This is a great product to keep an eye on your dog's activity levels. We have a small PomChi and it's so very easy for them to gain weight and even 1 lb makes a big difference. We love taking her for walks and then seeing the results on the fitbark. What a great product to keep the whole family happy and healthy!!! A tired dog is a happy dog!!!!

Great little tracker Does what you expect, and I've certainly kept an eye to try and ensure my dog is getting his quota (and more than average if poss). The ability to compare activity over time is the key here, rather than thinking you are getting accurate step counting or absolute definitive times for different activity. The phone app could be improved (the bluetooth sync seems to take two rounds of "fetching" the data for me), and would be nice to have more stats/info, however, it all does what it needs to do, so given the alternative of no information,...

The phone app could be improved (the bluetooth sync seems to take two rounds of “fetching” the data for me), and would be nice to have more stats/info, however, it all does what it needs to do, so given the alternative of no information, this is a worthwhile purchase if you want to see if your hound is getting enough exersize day to day (or if its dropping off over time, in which case you might have a problem, or an ageing dog).

Battery tends to last the week, so i charge it up for 90mins sunday evening and good to go. The app has a battery monitor icon to indicate if in need of a charge, so check in every day on it.

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

I’ve ordered four FitBarks now, two for my dogs and two to give as gifts. Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier.

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.

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.

Great tool for the conscientious dog owner I love this tool! It's an awesome complement to my fitbit charge hr! I give it a 4 instead of a 5 because getting to know the app takes some time and work. Once you get it all figured out though the data tracking is awesome! I have a Weimaraner and I live in an apartment, but I am also a runner and very active. As a breed that requires a lot of exercise, I really feel like it helps me better gage if my fur baby is getting his needs met, especially... Fetch More

I love this tool! It’s an awesome complement to my fitbit charge hr! I give it a 4 instead of a 5 because getting to know the app takes some time and work. Once you get it all figured out though the data tracking is awesome! I have a Weimaraner and I live in an apartment, but I am also a runner and very active. As a breed that requires a lot of exercise, I really feel like it helps me better gage if my fur baby is getting his needs met, especially since he is crated for about 8 hours of his day. I recommend it to anyone who is conscientious about their best friends whole being! Plus, the fitbark team is very kind, quick, and eager to help you, as you help them create a better device and app!

We love it Started out a little buggy and required a restart by Fitbark but the customer service was fantastic and we've had no issues since. We've been using it for about a month and we love it. Our Jack Russell pup is extremely high energy and in the 95th+ percentile each week. I've been a fitbit user for over two years so I value the ability to track her alongside myself. It's just a little added motivation when I can see that I haven't kept my end of the bargain with fetch and walks. On a side note, seems... Fetch More

It’s just a little added motivation when I can see that I haven’t kept my end of the bargain with fetch and walks. On a side note, seems to be water resistant to some degree because she has fallen in the water a couple of times and there hasn’t been a problem.

Great way to keep my older dog active Great app. Best customer service. Highly recommend.

Penny loves to track scents at the dog park, and she is able to be off leash in the fenced area so it is incredible to me to be able to see this in graphs and numbers! We also walk in the park after... Most of the time we are weekend warriors, but I'm on vacation right now. The fitbark has made this a lot more fun! Penny and I have a great competition now with my Fitbit... However Penny keeps winning!
