Illness & Early Signs

I'm actually using it to help find a comfort zone of exercise without making her suffer during the night. She has pleural effusion and arthritis. Too much exercise and she coughs too much for the rest of the day.

You can tell Nelson's getting closer to his surgery day as he's moving less because his shoulders hurt more ? But on a good note, FitBark has been awesome to see his change in activity because of it ??

Co-Jack was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, hence the 12k Bark Pts of activity. The veterinary behaviorist prescribed anxiety meds, and advised us to continue using our FitBark to monitor his improvement. 🙂 . Thank you for all your help and your part in supporting such a lovely product! As I've said before, it's been a real life saver in managing my dog's exercise data, and consequently his behavior!

Hi I am Luna the 4 year old Collie, My mummy owns a fitbit and found it so interesting that when she saw this advertised she thought it would be fun to see us keeping fit together she is currently annoyed as I keep beating her :).
she has had great fun keeping track of me and she also loves the fact it tell her what I have been up to when she has been out but sadly she now knows my secret that I am often have a good sleep.
it has helped my mummy lots as I had been unwell and she was able to show the vet my details and she was able to track my food intake and also if I had had lethargic days.
I would highly recommend this device to any dog lover as it is great fun to work out together and go for long hikes to collect our points.

mummy said that the support from the FitBark team is excellent she had trouble with her device and they are literally there 24/7 to help you with all your needs my device did go a bit faulty but within 48 hours it had been replaced and linked up to my old account so we could get back to tracking my details.

the device is small and discrete on my collar and comes in a wide range of colours I’m currently modelling the life and soul of the party blue but I think my mummy is looking into purchasing another one for my bro.
well we give this device 5 Paws and lots of high excited Woofs cause we love it.
many thanks for reading

I love knowing if my dog needs more playtime. With a dachshund you need to make sure that they stay fit to combat spine injuries. With the FitBark I have peace of mind knowing that I am doing all I can to fight that. The app tracks play and active time and it makes it easy to see if we need to go for a longer walk.

You have given us a tool to help improve Tequila's heart failure. By measuring her activity we have quantifiable proof that she has not worsened over the last 14 months!!! Her heart doctor had only given her that long to live with medication alone. Thank you so much!!!

We have been using FitBark to to manage dogs with generalized anxiety along with a nutraceutical diet (Forza10 Behavioral or Armonia) and a correct therapy. We are delighted with the quality of FitBark's data and how easy it is to access the information we need to run our studies.

Great device • Great app I should start by saying I read an article about 5 things you may be doing to crush your dogs spirit. The very first thing was not taking your dog on a walk as often as you should. Admittedly, I am guilty of this and I do NOT want to crush the spirit of any dog! So I looked at several styles of activity trackers and decided to try the FitBark. I think seeing their actual activity level will either guilt me into getting busy with them or make me proud of how we're doing.... Fetch More

I’ve only been using my FitBark for about a week. I have 3 dogs (a Mastiff and 2 Yorkies) and it’s been fun to see what time of day they’re most active and just how active they really are.
I bought one for each of my daughters dogs too (an Australian Shepard and a Boxer).
All of the dogs are ‘friends’, on the app, so we can see how active they’ve been, even when we’re all living in different cities. When they’re all together there’s a HUGE jump in play/active time.
It’s nice to be able to add notes to each day as well. You can go back and see if their activity, or lack thereof, is mirrored by health issues (diarrhea, decreased appetite, etc). I haven’t been using it long enough to take advantage of this feature but I like having that option available.
The staff is amazing! When I’ve asked questions through the app, I thought I’d have to wait several hours for a response; not so! The support has been much higher than I expected it to be. You’re made to feel like one of the FitBark family. I like having the ability to send photos too. I can include a screen shot with my question(s) which helps me explain my question and, I assume, it likely helps them to see what I’m talking about.
I don’t consider myself to be a very tech savvy individual but I have found the app and FitBark set up to be quite straightforward and simple. If I can do it, anybody can do it!
I’ve purchased 5 FitBarks, for my dogs and as gifts, and I feel it will prove to be a great investment in our dogs’ health. And we’ll benefit as well.

We don't talk about it much but FitBark monitors sleep too. And a big change in sleeping habits is nearly always an indicator of illness. Last year, it was noticing the uptick in sleeping hours, that got our pup to the vet sooner rather than later. For most of us there's a huge chunk of time when we're not with our furry friends. FitBark helps fill in that missing information.

FitBark has been a great company to collaborate with on our FDA-registered INAD research trial on dogs with chronic allergic dermatitis. They assisted us with data analysis and worked with the dog owners to ensure that our data collection went smoothly. What a great team! Thank you, FitBark!
