A great and nifty product, well worth buying. The FitBark is an awesome product. The app is clever and provides some clear, and relevant information. I'm looking forward to seeing how this product develops, but will continue to use it! It's well packaged, and easy to set up with clear instructions. The support team respond very quickly to queries, and are very friendly and helpful. There's a growing community of users on Facebook with whom you can share information and find dogs similar to yours to "friend" on the app to compete/compare as you'd like. Would definitely recommend. It links... Fetch More

It links my FitBit account which is awesome, shows me my target and the dog’s on the same graphs. Some more integration would be amazing, although I’m unsure what I’d like to see really at this stage!

There are a few things which could be better though. The additional wifi charging station is very expensive, so I don’t have it, which means my dogs data only sync when I ask it to via my app. I’m hoping that something will change with this in future development of the product though, and I’d still happily give it 5 stars.

FitBark: Accurate, inexpensive and fun for you and your dog! We've had our True Red FitBark for nearly a month now, and it was more than worth the wait…we have a beautiful Australian Shepherd, a year and a half old, and she is nothing but motion! My wife and i have been curious since we got our dog just how much she really did during the day, and we've both worn the FitBit Human Activity Monitor for years, so we both had personal baselines.

FitBark: Accurate, inexpensive and fun for you and your dog!

We’ve had our True Red FitBark for nearly a month now, and it was more than worth the wait…we have a beautiful Australian Shepherd, a year and a half old, and she is nothing but motion! My wife and i have been curious since we got our dog just how much she really did during the day, and we’ve both worn the FitBit Human Activity Monitor for years, so we both had personal baselines. The FitBark has a feature that allows you to compare your human vs. your dogs activity level, and i have to tell you, we have a lot of work to do to keep our numbers up even near hers! The FitBark also shows you on a graph just how busy your dog has been, and when. Very helpful if you are trying to get an older or sedentary dog to move more, or pick up the activity level (and calorie burn) of a dieting dog. The software runs great on my iOS, is very details on both a daily and weekly level, and has gone a week+ before needing recharged. Our Mackenzie has a ton of dog friends, who play pretty rough, and has had no effect on the FitBark, the unit itself is very small and almost weightless, and so far, tough as nails. It has a very novel attachment scheme that allows for almost universal fit on nearly any collar, that stays tight, has not collected dirt and weeds in it, nor been snatched off by a rowdy buddy.
I have already had to contact Customer Service via email to help me get the most out of a feature and they responded quickly and were clear and very helpful, we accomplished my problem in 1 email exchange! Overall, we are very happy with our FitBark, and while it means nothing to our Mackenzie, we can monitor and modify what we need to, to keep her, and us, healthy and happier for a longer time.

Jumps and Leaps ahead of the others After having several of the other trackers (Whistle, Voyce and Tagg) this is the first tracker that actually records his activity accurately. The others would have large swings in the data. The battery life is top notch. Others state they last 5 - 7 days and they don't come close. I am into the eighth day of the charge and the little bone indicator has barely moved. I am an active jogger and my little buddy likes to come with me.

I would like to see more enhancements to their web portal.

Oscar is a Puggle who we adopted from an Amish farm when he was about 12 weeks old. We do not know the size of his parents, nor are we aware of the existence of any litter mates. He is overweight for sure, and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a little over a year ago. Even on the medication and prescription food, he has maintained the same weight (~ 55-58#) for a while.

FitBark (combined with my Fitbit) fits right into what we are trying to accomplish with Oscar’s health. He will be 4 years old in April, and we want to be sure he’s around for a long time.

Loving the FitBark! So much fun to watch the dogs progress from work throughout the day! I am obsessed with tracking my steps...I'm having so much fun tracking my dogs now, too.

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!

Love Fitbark! I love my Fitbark! Finally I have a way to track my activity and remind my owner to take me on walks. He is obsessed with his Fitbit so now we have something else in common - like eating and pooping and...

Amazing Small Activity Tracker I got a FitBark for my dog and I love it! I can see how active he is and I can sync it with my Fitbit to compare our daily activity. Both trackers will help us to keep active all the time! I recommend this product to any dog owner!

Definitely the best -- works and works well. LOVE It!!! Can't say enough great things about it. We are dog people.. everyone in our family has a dog and now everyone in our family has a Fitbark! I tested both Fitbark and Whistle and the Whistle just doesn't compare.. the Fitbark is the way to go (more about that later). Fitbark is small, lightweight, fits on the collar very well and the app is super easy to use. It doesn't require cellular so there are no monthly fees. It is reliable...and the device on the collar actually records activity levels... Fetch More

Can’t say enough great things about it. We are dog people.. everyone in our family has a dog and now everyone in our family has a Fitbark! I tested both Fitbark and Whistle and the Whistle just doesn’t compare.. the Fitbark is the way to go (more about that later). Fitbark is small, lightweight, fits on the collar very well and the app is super easy to use. It doesn’t require cellular so there are no monthly fees. It is reliable…and the device on the collar actually records activity levels so that when a phone that is authorized w/the Fitbark app is near, it syncs and updates the server with the info (or if you buy the optional doghouse shaped Wifi base station, it will do it for you when your dog is near it). The portal is fun…you can compare your dogs activity to other dogs that you own or have been invited to monitor.
It is keeping us more active, too.. we want our dog to meet her goal so we take her for more walks!! Incredible.
One of the best features is that you can post pictures and information to the dog’s network so that everyone following him can see…this is great for pet professionals to keep in touch with the parents as well as family members to communicate with each other. Everyone I’ve showed this to has asked for one.. We have five and just ordered another ten!!! It’s also great because you can see WHEN your dog was active.. it tracks activity and time. The app is great, too.. all the data is so easy to understand and get to. It was very well thought out.
Lastly, Whistle would be great if it worked..except for the size, weight, and bulkiness. The GPS is the only reason to get it.. if activity is all you need just get Fitbark… but if you want GPS, I just don’t think the Whistle is ready. There is a 3 minute lag time which is FOREVER if you are trying to track a roaming pup and so far I can’t get activity working on Whistle and GPS is 6.95/month if you pay 2 years in advance…that’s a lot but it would be well worth it if it worked. I give Fitbark five stars–it’s awesome.
