Motivation

So awesome! I love being able to see how my baby's doing and it's motivated me to be more active.

Great product, awesome customer service! We picked up this activity monitor a few weeks ago to see how much exercise our pooch was getting with their walker. This device is tiny and actually provides us with more info than we would have anticipated. Plus, it keeps us honest and motivated to get my pup out and about. The interface is good, not great, but fitbark are working on making it more user friendly -- I know this bc fitbark actively solicited my feedback and explained the app's feature. A good friend has the whistle but I was never convinced, esp... Fetch More

The interface is good, not great, but fitbark are working on making it more user friendly — I know this bc fitbark actively solicited my feedback and explained the app’s feature. A good friend has the whistle but I was never convinced, esp after reading reviews. So happy I went with my gut and tried out this new product.

He now has to wear his collar all the time which he doesn't mind as he is always now ready for walks Great gadget, easy to setup Buddy got fitbark for his Christmas and we are all loving tracking his exercise routine and pushing his score higher. He now has to wear his collar all the time which he doesn't mind as he is always now ready for walks. Great gadget, easy to setup and use. We love it 🙂 .

Loving FitBark It is very motivating. It's fun to keep track of our progress, now that spring has sprung. Like the memos Fitbark sends when goals have been me. Set Chet up as a 51 lb. 2 year old Active intact Aussie male. He was given a goal of 9,900 pts. and has surpassed that goal by the thousands everyday. Hope to have him at an Olympian status by summer.

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 ? .

Great Product! We got this for our dog for Christmas and it has been wonderful. It keeps us motivated to get our pup out for a walk when she needs it (it even sends reminders when she hasn't been active for a while!) By using the product, we were also able to see that our dog walker was not taking our dog out for the full hour walks and sometimes forgot to come at all! The customer support has been amazing for any questions to you have - We bought the wifi base station and had a bit of difficulty setting... Fetch More

The customer support has been amazing for any questions to you have – We bought the wifi base station and had a bit of difficulty setting it up but customer support helped us in no time. They are very responsive. I would highly recommend this product to any dog owner!

Great app!!!! Every feature on this app is spot on! It is so fun and easy to use. It had become my new addiction.

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.

I am really enjoying the FitBark. At first, I thought it was something fun to see how much Waffles and Victoria moved and their activity levels. Now I love seeing what I need to do to keep them active and healthy. It helps me see where I was slacking. This really is a great tool to help keep them healthy and happy. We strive to reach our goal. We need puppy points!

Great device and awesome app I've ordered four FitBarks now, two for my dogs and two to give as gifts. Needless to say, I couldn't be happier. This is one of those products that deserves two separate reviews, because there are really two different parts: an app and the device itself. I gave it 5 stars overall because the device has exceeded my expectations. The app is good and keeps getting regular updates with fun new features. Also noteworthy - the customer service is tremendous. Like, the best I've ever encountered for any company (and I don't say that lightly).... Fetch More

Part 1, the device
Things I love: it’s smaller and lighter than it looks. It’s highly durable. Lola, my beagle/boxer mix isn’t kind to it. Between playing rough with others at the dog park and occasional swims in a nearby creek, our fitbark has seen its share of mistreatment. After nearly 8 months, the FitBark not only functions, but still looks very good with only a few light scratches. I’m averaging a little over a week between charges. It is very convenient to charge also, because you don’t have to take it off the collar.
The app:
Initial setup was easy. The design is unique, intuitive, and I figured out the basics after a few minutes of playing with it. It keeps updating every month or two with new features. Most recently (and my favorite part) they added a “top dog” leaderboard to follow other dogs and compete or compare activity.
Bottom Line: I’m a non-tech savvy dog lover and I use FitBark literally every day. I can honestly say it has made me a much better dog parent and I highly recommend it. It’s one of those things I didn’t know I needed and now can’t live without.
