Sleep

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.

I have a lovely 2 year old lab with big floppy ears, but I can't keep her out of the water. As a result, she has a chronic ear infection problem. I love Fitbark, I can check in the morning to see how she slept. If she has lots of points I know something is bothering her. I can then check her ears to head off the problem. Thank you Fitbark!

Great wearable for dogs! This device is so much fun. You can see how much time your dog spends resting, playing (typically walking or running), and being "active" (which is basically being awake but not doing a lot). If you have multiple dogs, you can compare them against each other. I even used it to determine who wandered off at night and peed in the basement - only one dog was active at that time so she was busted! LOL Support is fabulous. They respond via chat to any questions, and are super-responsive to any enhancement ideas. I use the app... Fetch More

They respond via chat to any questions, and are super-responsive to any enhancement ideas. I use the app on an iPhone 4s and it works really well, even though my phone is older. Another plus is that they share the (anonymized) data that they collect with the FitBarks. It’s a great way for dog owners to contribute to research on dog health, especially if you have a purebred that is not as well-represented in their data set.

When I got up this morning, I opened the FitBark app and noticed that Ruby was up in the night as her sleep score was low. I checked her ears and what do you know? Her chronic ear infection was back.

His FitBark is a great way of measuring how well he feels, because he's more active when he doesn't have pain! I've noticed a gradual increase in his activity in the last week! I can also see that he is sleeping better, again probably because of a lack of discomfort!

Big Fan of Fitbark aka fitbit for dogs I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing. I was lucky enough to acquire a Fitbark by a chance encounter at SXSW this past Spring. I’ve been using it ever since then and have nothing but great things to say. I’ve found several uses for Fitbark. For one, it helps my dog stay healthy in terms of exercise. In the past there were many times when I would only walk my dog for bathroom breaks, but thanks to Fitbark, I can see... Fetch More

I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing.

I was lucky enough to acquire a Fitbark by a chance encounter at SXSW this past Spring. I’ve been using it ever since then and have nothing but great things to say.

I’ve found several uses for Fitbark. For one, it helps my dog stay healthy in terms of exercise. In the past there were many times when I would only walk my dog for bathroom breaks, but thanks to Fitbark, I can see how long of a walk I need to take to ensure he gets the amount of energy required. Secondly, I’ve started to notice when Trevor has nighttime activity, which I can then map back to lack of exercise or him eating other types of foods. Finally it helps me monitor Trevor’s separation anxiety. Whenever I leave the house, he’s super active until he settles down. Thanks to Fitbark, I learned that the anxiety got better over time. That’s a great thing to know for any caring dog owner.

The app is pretty slick, it shows you your dog’s activity over days and weeks. All in all it’s a great way to improve your dog’s health.

FitBark is awesome! Purchased the Fitbark for our dog. She has a medical condition and will be on medication for life. The Fitbark helps us ensure she is getting proper exercise and rest. We can even share results with our Vet. My sister saw it, asked about it and is now going to get one for her dog. Great product with Excellent customer service!

Lazy dog owner with a happy, active dog! This product has changed the way I approach my dog's health. I am, admittedly, a lazy dog owner. My dog is older, so I used that as an excuse for brief walks and lots of downtime. Her first week with the FitBark, I realized how little activity she saw throughout her day and was appalled by my own behavior. Since using the FitBark, Maggie May is having more active days and is sleeping better because she's worn out and happy. The app is easy to use, the company is SUPER responsive and... Fetch More

This product has changed the way I approach my dog’s health. I am, admittedly, a lazy dog owner. My dog is older, so I used that as an excuse for brief walks and lots of downtime. Her first week with the FitBark, I realized how little activity she saw throughout her day and was appalled by my own behavior. Since using the FitBark, Maggie May is having more active days and is sleeping better because she’s worn out and happy. The app is easy to use, the company is SUPER responsive and fast, and my partner is able to keep track of Maggie’s activities, too! I highly recommend the FitBark to anyone with a busy, distracting life. It keeps your dog’s needs in mind, even when you can’t.

Changed Pippie’s life I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day.

Changed Pippie’s life

I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day. If she hasn’t her activity levels are way down and her rest is way up. Last week I even got an alert that “Pippie is resting more than normal, is she ok?” She had already had her medication that day so, I made an appointment with our Vet and showed her the Fitbark app and Pippie’s play and rest times. First, my Vet asked where he could get one and I also showed him how I could share Pippie’s information with him to help keep an eye on her. He adjusted her medication and my girl is back up to her normal playful self. Pippie loves Fitbark, thank you!!!
