Motivation

I'm loving the Fitbark with my new rescue dog. First, it's really getting me to pay attention to the exercise he's getting and motivating me to get him out for hikes, jogging, playdates, etc. This in turn is actually getting me much more active then personal activity tracker ever did. I also love the ability to benchmark and see how other dogs are doing and now have friends and family's dogs on the app as well. An interesting benefit to showing the activity throughout the day is I could tell when the he escaped from his crate to go running... Fetch More

An interesting benefit to showing the activity throughout the day is I could tell when the he escaped from his crate to go running around the house! Since he did no damage after being out for a couple hours, I’m no longer crating him. Bonus for him 😉 . The FitBark is simple to set up and the app has a great user interface. Get one for your dog and get the both of you more active.

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.

For me Fitbark is like the friend who is always there to give encouragement and goodwill, to go out in the rain, wind and sometimes (even in Scotland) the sunshine just to see your dog's tail wagg.

Motivates me to take my dog out more!  I can't say enough good things about Fitbark. I love being able to track my dog's fitness, and being able to set goals motivates me to go for more walks and runs with him. My first Fitbark malfunctioned, and the amazing customer support team fixed my problem instantly. They provided constant support, even after hours and on weekends, which is true dedication and shows their passion for their product and their customers (thank you so much!). You won't regret getting this little gadget, and your pup will love you for it!

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.

It's been fantastic - really helped with seeing how much he does throughout the day while I'm at work, and encourages me to take him for an extra 15 minutes at the end of a walk to get his points up! I've already recommended this to several friends - three of them plan to buy one for their dogs! It'll be great to compete with them ? .

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!

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.

This is a great little product for your dog This is a great little product for your dog. It works as designed but you need to spend a little bit of time understanding the data provided. Once you start to use it you get to understand the information more. It really gives you a sense as to what your dog is doing and really how little exercise they do. It makes you want to take them for a walk so that you can get a little more exercise. The UI is nice.
