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

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.

Keep those paws moving Great set of tools in the app that really give insight into your pet's activities (or lack there of). Having a lot of fun tracking Murphy's adventures. This weekend I will match it up with my FitBit ... I have a feeling he will put me to shame!

10 stars "Santa" brought my dogs each one for Christmas. I absolutely love them. I was able to link both devices to 1 app. The staff at Fitbark is fantastic. I have contacted them with a few questions and received a response back within a half hour....plus you get daily tips. I actually like this app better than my Fitbit app. I highly recommend this product.

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.

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!

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.

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

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 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!

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 am an active jogger and my little buddy likes to come with me. His activity stats are in line with my activity tracker. Fitbark is a solid tracker. I would like to see more enhancements to their web portal.

We Love Our FitBarks

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!

Excellent Customer Service! I received the fitbark as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it! It has made me more aware of my pup's activity levels and I just bought a Fitbit to join the fun and get active with my dog! We had a small issue and the developers were quick to respond, extremely helpful, and resolved the issue right away!
