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 🙂 .

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.

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 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.

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... Fetch More

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.

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

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 improved) were familiar and easy enough to use.
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.

Very Impressed I've been using the FitBark for over a week now with our 3 year old Maltese. I was very happy to see that it was much smaller than I had expected it to be. It was easy to place on his collar, and he doesn't mind wearing it at all. The app is very user friendly and helpful for the set up process. It is amazing to be able to monitor your dogs level of activity, and it has influenced us to take longer walks and stay more active. The app makes it easy to set and change... Fetch More

The app makes it easy to set and change your dogs goal for the day, and monitor his progress via Bluetooth connection with your phone. I’ve tried a couple other pet “wearables” and the FitBark is the best I’ve come across so far.

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!

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.

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.
