Motivation

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.

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.

Love it! Helped my older chubby Golden lose weight My older Golden was looking chubby so I was looking for apps & stumbled on this. People think it's so funny to have a Fitbit for a dog but I had cut back on her food & wanted to work on her exercise. This has been a great tool! I found out on the 3 days I work she doesn't move much even though there is another dog there ( who's thin). So I'm walking her before work. You can track the hours she's active, days & months, even compare with... Fetch More

Love it! Helped my older chubby Golden lose weight

My older Golden was looking chubby so I was looking for apps & stumbled on this. People think it’s so funny to have a Fitbit for a dog but I had cut back on her food & wanted to work on her exercise. This has been a great tool! I found out on the 3 days I work she doesn’t move much even though there is another dog there ( who’s thin). So I’m walking her before work. You can track the hours she’s active, days & months, even compare with other similar dogs & compete with friends dogs. They set a goal for you or you can customize it which I did cause we’d never make the one they had set- I will increase it as we go along. I especially like that when summer comes we can count her swimming too. She has lost 3 pounds! Only 2 more to go. I can tell she feels better. I didn’t want to have her die early just because she was fat- that’s the owners fault. This app helps me stay focused & not get too busy & forget to help her stay on track. Oh & you can even track your own Fitbit next to the dog if you want too. Everything was easy to use & understand. So glad I found this.

Loving our FitBarks! Everyone is getting fit with this device 🙂 We've had our 55lb SharPei/Pointer mix on for a few months now and have enjoyed it so much I've ordered them for my Mom's and Sister's dogs. We've also convinced friends to get their pooch's on and are now having friendly competitions with our mutts. We've gone through a number of human fitness trackers and generally lost interest but surprisingly having our dog kitted up has kept us active daily making sure she gets out and hits our goals.

Loving our FitBarks! Everyone is getting fit with this device 🙂

We’ve had our 55lb SharPei/Pointer mix on for a few months now and have enjoyed it so much I’ve ordered them for my Mom’s and Sister’s dogs. We’ve also convinced friends to get their pooch’s on and are now having friendly competitions with our mutts. We’ve gone through a number of human fitness trackers and generally lost interest but surprisingly having our dog kitted up has kept us active daily making sure she gets out and hits our goals. Even our friend who’s not big on exercising himself it getting out every day and tossing a ball until his dog hits his points. Love that each dog gets point goals based on breeds (primary and secondary), age and weight. Love being able to comment, post pics, likes, etc. on our and our friends profiles. Now that we’re all sharing our pups profiles it’s led to a great group all encouraging (and competing ;)) each other to keep our dogs active. The upshot is that it’s keeping each of us active as well. We’re now doing hikes with our pups and other puppy playdates regularly.

The app is simple and fun to use. Device size makes it suitable for any size dog from toy to Great Dane. Set up was easy, even for my 80yr old MamaBear. Excited to see how our dog compares to other similar dogs when that feature is working.

We now have more than half a dozen family and friends on FitBark and would recommend it to anyone who wants insight into the health and activity of their dogs. As a side benefit it’ll get you more active as well.

Update: We recently had to travel for a couple of days and left our dog at a kennel. It was super insightful to see how much activity she got there. When we told the Kennel owner she was over her daily goal every day she said she’d start recommending them to her other clients. She’s always touted how much playtime and exercise the dogs get there and now she has hard data she can show owners.

Highly recommended.

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.

Loving the FitBark! We got a FitBark for our little dog as we wanted to ensure he was active enough even though my wife and I both work during the day. The FitBark allows us, through their proprietary FitBark Points, to see how active he's been during the day whilst we're out (usually not very!) and gives us a target to aim for to push us to get him out and moving. As proponents of the human equivalent, FitBit, the Bluetooth connectivity and interactive app (which is, as yet, by no means perfect but is always being worked on and... Fetch More

The customer service at FitBark is excellent and their staff are always willing to help and answer queries. If you’re a fan activity trackers and want to get your canine buddies involved too, the FitBark fits the bill perfectly.

Fantastic If this app and tracker does not inspire you to get out and exercise with you dog - nothing will. Support is great too!

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.
