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 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.

I think the activity devices like FitBark are going to be incredibly important for pet owners on a number of levels to ensure that their pets get adequate exercise and that they themselves are, too.

A fitbit for dogs! Love it! This is great -- it keeps me honest! I have a basset hound, and it is soooo easy to just let her sleep on the couch and miss a walk. I have a fitbit, and this works to make sure I keep her active the same way the fitbit makes sure I stay active EVERY DAY and I can't "rationalize" how much she actually moved around. The device doesn't count steps, but "activity." It is a fun app on my Iphone, connects via bluetooth. The monitor fit snugly and easily flat on her collar.... Fetch More

A fitbit for dogs! Love it!

This is great — it keeps me honest! I have a basset hound, and it is soooo easy to just let her sleep on the couch and miss a walk. I have a fitbit, and this works to make sure I keep her active the same way the fitbit makes sure I stay active EVERY DAY and I can’t “rationalize” how much she actually moved around. The device doesn’t count steps, but “activity.” It is a fun app on my Iphone, connects via bluetooth. The monitor fit snugly and easily flat on her collar. Pearl is a bigger dog, and has a bigger collar; on my mother’s Chihuahua, however, I think the fitbark would be too big. It isn’t heavy — very lightweight — so the only issue on tiny little dogs would be bulk. The best thing is the attitude of the company…. this is a relatively new product, and they are continually updating and making changes to the software, and seem to have a really great and positive and FUN attitude. There is the option to share and have friends, just like with the fitbit. Love this, and it HAS helped give me the reason to shoo my dog off the couch and force her outside for a walk!

I find this super helpful to see if she's had enough exercise, or is due for more. I can see if she just slept all day or if she played or was taken for a walk while I was at work. It is helping me and my family change OUR habits to help her ūüôā

Leveraging the dog-owner relationship with a focus on monitoring the pet's physical activity is highly innovative. Platforms like FitBark have the potential to get both pets and people moving together and improve health outcomes for all.

Love it. It is actually getting me out into "exercise land". I'm more competitive for my dog than for myself!!!

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

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.

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

I love my FitBark I love my Fitbark! It's a great motivational tool for me and my furbaby. The set-up was super easy! Plus the customer service to help answer detailed questions about the app was phenomenal.

FitBark is GREAT I love the FitBark for my girls. I have two Border Collies, a 12 year old and a 2 year old. It has been amazing to see how much activity they are getting in a day. I bought them originally because I was concern about my older girl and it is an amazing tool/reminder to me how much I need to be involved in ensure that she gets the exercise she needs to stay healthy. I have also found it beneficial in understand the younger one too. I can attest that it is waterproof and the battery... Fetch More

FitBark is GREAT

I love the FitBark for my girls. I have two Border Collies, a 12 year old and a 2 year old. It has been amazing to see how much activity they are getting in a day. I bought them originally because I was concern about my older girl and it is an amazing tool/reminder to me how much I need to be involved in ensure that she gets the exercise she needs to stay healthy. I have also found it beneficial in understand the younger one too. I can attest that it is waterproof and the battery life has been about 1 week with a fast charge time. I love the app and detailed information it proved. The bonus for me is that I am actually hitting my FitBit targets now that I am making sure my girls hit their goals. I would recommend it to anyone and have told all my friends with dogs about the FitBark.
