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 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!

Most helpful Very helpful in rehabilitation of a dog with two reconstructed knees. I can at the same time "copy" his stats to his vet, who can recommend more or less activity as needed. It also, along with the dogs "encouragement", helps me get more active and graphically compare his stats to mine (via Fitbit). Very cool.

Five Stars Good to relate our cocker spaniels ground coverage in relation to my Fitbit.

FitBark works!! Moose loves it!! I’ve been waiting for this for a long time and couldn’t be happier!! After unpacking the FitBark and attaching it to Moose a few days ago, I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this, but am I glad I did!! When it arrived, I thought it might be complicated to set up and then found out that I couldn't have been more wrong. To my surprise, the setup was effortless. I played tug of war with Moose with one hand and was able to set the FitBark up with my other. The rubber... Fetch More

I played tug of war with Moose with one hand and was able to set the FitBark up with my other. The rubber band they ship with the device snapped around Moose’s collar nice and snug. Moose even went for a swim yesterday and I can vouch, it is waterproof. He always gets great exercise but now I’m actually going to be able to chart it and compare against other dogs. Hopefully this inspires me to take a run with Moose so I can boost his step count. Thanks FitBark!

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.

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.

Love FitBark and it results in the 4 foot and 2 foot residents of our home getting more exercise.

Bought two of these via Kickstarter and a third via Fitbark.com — ahead of when amazon was selling them. I’ve also got the wifi base station and using all of this via iOS.

First off — for a gen1 solution, I’ve been very impressed with device and how responsive the customer support folks are when working through challenges.

I had some initial setup issues with my home wifi (not related to fitbark) that was causing issues with the wifi base station. Working with their customer support, we figured out the issue .. And it was due to my net gear router .. Not fit bark’s fault.

The customer support team is very helpful with my questions – and has taken a few suggestions for enhancements on the iOS app, the wifi base station, and device itself.

Have not had any issues with the devices failing and I’m getting about a week between battery charges.

This is a great way to monitor the health and activity levels of your dogs — and encourages you to spend more time with your pups!

Great app! We became FitBark users recently, shortly after we all got FitBits. We decided that 2016 would be a healthier for all of us and FitBark is helping us ensure that our pup is included. Though I am a new user, I have found the app to be user friendly, and the team at FitBark is very interactive, helpful and friendly. I'm glad to be a part of the FitBark family and would recommend it to any pet owner who is concerned with optimizing their dog's health, particularly those with multiple people involved with the care of their dog...

Definitely recommend Loving our Fitbark. Alfie was recovering from an injury and needed to build up the strength in his leg slowly. His Fitpoints allowed me to monitor his activities more accurately and know when he needed a bit more crate rest. Now hes back to full strength we've synced with my Fitbit and we're getting back to full fitness together - he's winning! His daycare chums are in his pack and I can keep an eye on what they're all up to when I'm not there. He's a LOT more active than I knew! Highly recommend.

I'm loving the Fitbark with my new rescue dog. First, it's really getting me to pay attention to the exercise he's getting and motivating me to get him out for hikes, jogging, playdates, etc. This in turn is actually getting me much more active then personal activity tracker ever did. I also love the ability to benchmark and see how other dogs are doing and now have friends and family's dogs on the app as well. An interesting benefit to showing the activity throughout the day is I could tell when the he escaped from his crate to go running... Fetch More

An interesting benefit to showing the activity throughout the day is I could tell when the he escaped from his crate to go running around the house! Since he did no damage after being out for a couple hours, I’m no longer crating him. Bonus for him 😉 . The FitBark is simple to set up and the app has a great user interface. Get one for your dog and get the both of you more active.
