Lucy's FitBark has been great! I think it is a great way to hold people accountable for getting out and staying active with there dogs!

The pup loves the FitBark FitBark lets me know when my dog doesn't get the playtime he should. Now I know that he is getting to go to the dog park enough.

Dog Trainer's New Favorite Toy I've just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I'm excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor. First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I've yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great.

Dog Trainer’s New Favorite Toy

I’ve just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I’m excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor.
First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I’ve yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great. The best application i have found for my own dogs though, are the times when I am away and have to leave them in the care of someone else. I can monitor their activity and pair their FitBark devices with the dog sitter’s mobile device so that the individual can reference how much activity I expect from them in a clear way, without confusion or uncertainty. Furthermore, I’ve convinced a few clients to order these so that I can monitor their dogs to determine if they are doing the necessary amount of work needed to properly condition in obedience commands the way they are instructed to do so between lessons with me. The FitBark quantifies everything for them to help give a tangible goal to improve/maintain not only the physical health of their dog, but the dog’s mental health through training exercises. My clients tell me that FitBark helps keep them on track and I can see it for myself. My girlfriend loves my FitBark monitors too, as they allow her to see how much activity our dogs get by virtue of my full-time employment as an independent trainer. Of course, she teases me when “her” dog, ‘Chivo’, gets more points than “my” dog, ‘Jarvis’. All in all, the applications for a FitBark are endless and I can’t wait to see what other things people think of that I haven’t yet!

I absolutely love Fitbark. I stumbled on this product in Amazon …

I absolutely love Fitbark. I stumbled on this product in Amazon Launchpad, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Device:
I really like that the device is small, but the color pops enough for me to notice if it’s potentially missing. The Fitbark hasn’t bothered my dog and is barely noticeable to anyone who is not looking for something on his neck. I’m actually surprised I like the blue. I was worried the color would pop too much and look cheesy, but that turned out to not be the case at all. It’s very cute.

App:
I like that the app breaks out the dog’s activity per hour. I can use it to determine whether my husband fed our dog based on the movements my dog made. It also forces both me and my husband to be honest about the exercise we give our dog.

The app is pretty but a bit clunky. It took me a day or so to navigate, and I used Facebook’s Fitbark Friends page for assistance. The way to add friends is not intuitive. I have to rely on the Facebook page to find people to connect with. From what I’ve heard, the developers have been improving the app significantly, so I’m excited to see the new updates in store.

Overall:
I’m very satisfied with Fitbark. The Bark point goals really does do a great job predicting the amount of points my dog needs. My dog is half border collie half corgi, so he tends to be naturally energetic. I used to think his hyperactive spurts in the house were part of his breed. Since I’ve gotten Fitbark, I’ve been able to monitor his energy levels so closely that I’ve almost completely eliminated the random bursts of energy. I can definitely say that this product significantly improved my dog’s quality of life and made my home life much more peaceful.

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.

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.

Great Product At first I was skeptical about the fitbark, I had a hard time believing the small tracker would be able to accurately track my dogs activity as well as survive my pups rough and tumble lifestyle. However this device has surpassed my expectations! I now have a good idea as to how active my dog is each day as well as if she is as active as she should be based on her age and breed. This tool has motivated me to give my girl all the extra play time and excersize she needs to reach her goals. I... Fetch More

At first I was skeptical about the fitbark, I had a hard time believing the small tracker would be able to accurately track my dogs activity as well as survive my pups rough and tumble lifestyle. However this device has surpassed my expectations! I now have a good idea as to how active my dog is each day as well as if she is as active as she should be based on her age and breed. This tool has motivated me to give my girl all the extra play time and excersize she needs to reach her goals. I love the fact that I can sync my fit bit tracker with the fitbark so I can compare both of our activity and I have to say that since purchasing the fitbark my fit bit scores have also increased. This is a great tool to monitor your dogs health and behavior. I look forward to any upgrades that fitbark my be working on!

Love it so far! I just got this today and already I am feeling like I have been letting my dog down with all the snuggle time and very little play time. This is going to be wonderful for my dog. I'm excited to get her back into the shape she should be in. Set up was easy. The app is easy to read and easy to navigate.

Love it so far!

FitBark - Fabulous! What a great concept: Fitbit for dogs. The FitBark doggie tracker came nicely packaged and was up and running after charging it. Putting the tracker on my dog's collar was super easy. Pairing it with my iPhone via Bluetooth was even easier. After a few minutes, I synced the tracker with my phone and was pleasantly surprised by the FitBark app. Ease of use, aesthetically pleasing design, and a simple setup makes for a great user experience. Well done!
