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.

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.

Useful tool This product is wonderful for making sure your pup or adult dog is getting enough exercise! It pairs up using Bluetooth making it quick and easy to get the data straight to your phone. However, because the fitbark emmits such a low Bluetooth signal the fitbark won't pair unless you are close to your pet. So you'll have to wait till you get home to see how active they were. Though it is a wonderful device because it compares your pets data with similar breeds and size of dog as well as what percentile he is in of... Fetch More

This product is wonderful for making sure your pup or adult dog is getting enough exercise! It pairs up using Bluetooth making it quick and easy to get the data straight to your phone. However, because the fitbark emmits such a low Bluetooth signal the fitbark won’t pair unless you are close to your pet. So you’ll have to wait till you get home to see how active they were. Though it is a wonderful device because it compares your pets data with similar breeds and size of dog as well as what percentile he is in of all the fit bark users. So in case you are unsure of where to set your goal they have some data to offer suggestions. We got ours because our blueheeler/beegle mix didn’t seem to be getting enough energy out. So we set the average goal and found out he had more to burn. It is a great way to keep your pet healthy and active. As well as keeping yourself in good shape too! The fitbark companion app also syncs up the data from your fitbit as well. If you have a cuddly critter that you think needs more or less exercise then this is a great way to manage that, plus you can earn bragging rights for the amount of barkpoints your pet earns! Plus you can add other pets of friends with fitbark to a friends list and compare and compete with them it is lots of fun for homosapien and kanine.

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.

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.

Longer walks My girlfriend gets a kick out of tracking our little dog's daily activity, or lack thereof. It has actually motivated me to take her on longer walks! A nice gift for the animal lover.

I have both FitBark & Fitbit. The gentle competition with other dogs is very motivating. And yes David and his 3 Chihuahua's from NYC are inspiring and certainly give my working cocker spaniel a run for her money!!! It definitely encourages me to get my girl out for a decent afternoon walkies.

The Awesome FitBit for Furbabies! I purchased this product looking for a pets equivalent to Fitbit. This is the ultimate. It even integrates with fitbit to see your progress together. Batty, my minpin, was 13 lbs at his last vet visit and so the vet placed him on orders of an additional long walk per day. Therefore I wanted a better way to see how he was doing like I see mine, as well as walking him the long walk every day. I'm more than pleased with this!

I purchased this product looking for a pets equivalent to Fitbit. This is the ultimate. It even integrates with fitbit to see your progress together.

Therefore I wanted a better way to see how he was doing like I see mine, as well as walking him the long walk every day. I’m more than pleased with this! While the android app is in Beta, it works great on BlackBerry 10 devices as well as android, and the Apple app is impressive too! Kudos and thank you! If you have fitbit and a furbaby, you need to get this for your pup!

Love it! I love that I can link the FitBark to my FitBit and track both of our progresses!

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!

Love Fitbark with my Fitbit. Jack (my dog) got his fitbark for Christmas. So far it's great. It's fun since I'm addicted to my Fitbit. It adds another dimension to exercising. And I like all the follow ups checking on how we're doing.
