Amazing tool The applications and uses for this tool are limitless! The set up and installation couldn't be simpler. I recommend all my dog training clients get one of these because of how easy it is to monitor the activity of your dog when he is with you or away. If your dog has separation anxiety you can tell when and for how long he is acting out from his anxiety. If your dog is overweight or under stimulated you can monitor and control just how much activity he is getting each day. It's amazing, buy one now!

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!

That seems to be his sweet spot for activity - if he gets that amount ... I debated for a while whether to get this but broke down and got it before Christmas. I have a young active Golden and wanted to make sure that I was providing him enough exercise. This product provides that information and so much more. We've had it almost a month now and it's really worth it. I go in and check the app everyday to see how much exercise he's had and if it's on the low end we play a few extra games... Fetch More

I debated for a while whether to get this but broke down and got it before Christmas. I have a young active Golden and wanted to make sure that I was providing him enough exercise. This product provides that information and so much more. We’ve had it almost a month now and it’s really worth it. I go in and check the app everyday to see how much exercise he’s had and if it’s on the low end we play a few extra games indoors to bring his activity level to around 10,000 steps. That seems to be his sweet spot for activity – if he gets that amount of steps he’s content, if not he’s asking for more attention – jet his way I can easily monitor it. Even better we’ve added ‘friends’ which are his dog buddies that also have one which also pushes us to compare and contract with our friends. It’s easy and fun and a must have for dog owners. Off to get one for my little 10 pound Morkie too (7 years old) as the product is quite small and will not be a burden for his collar.

A fitbit for your dog. Easy integration, great tool and small! I live an active lifestyle and have a dog that is helping to make me active with our frequent activity together. I wanted to get a monitor for several reasons, one of which is because the gadgets are just cool, but also to monitor my dog's activity level.

A fitbit for your dog. Easy integration, great tool and small!

I live an active lifestyle and have a dog that is helping to make me active with our frequent activity together. I wanted to get a monitor for several reasons, one of which is because the gadgets are just cool, but also to monitor my dog’s activity level.

I decided on this item based on all the positive reviews. This is a great item.

First off this is a lightweight and small item. It barely weighs anything. Set-up was easy. essentially power up the item with the included miniUSB cable after downloading the app and the item should sync. Charge for 1.5 hours and it is ready to go.

There are two included rubber bands that go onto the unit and then this goes around the collar. Although I was initially concerned about this coming off easily, it won’t unless something crazy happens. Plus, the profile is so small it is really like a leash attachment rather than the LED lights you can attach for a night walk.

Once you open the app and you get the item connected, you add the dogs profile, you can add a picture and away you go. The app for IOS is pretty easy to navigate for features. One quibble is I added my dogs picture, but had to look around to edit his info and that should be easier. I found how to change it, but it wasn’t immediately obvious. My hint: Press all the buttons and you discover many new features. (recommendation for software: make a default setting for sharing information something you choose rather than having to set it each time you go to this feature, or have a default setting for sharing information).

Once you get all squared away, you choose an activity level, from low energy to Olympian level and activity gives you points. I like this and the app. which can be set for use with a Fitbit, is pretty similar. I am noticing already that assuming activity levels can be easy when not based on facts. Love striving for a goal for my dog. I like the fact that you can also have others watch and participate in the app. Great feature!

I was also concerned about waterproofing on this item, but the USB plug is encased with a rubber seal that would be difficult to penetrate. As with most items, I would just ensure rinsing off the item with fresh water after an encounter with fresh or salt water.

Overall: I have been looking at various monitors for a while and waited because the technology didn’t quite seem there yet. This item seems to signal that the technology is here and easy to use. I really love the potential of this item and I love being able to understand my animal better in terms of activity. Plus, this is just a neat, cool item. It is small, lightweight, barely noticeable and easy to interact with and use.

Best part? The hardware works well, and software can always be updated now. Awesome.

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!

Great way to bond with my dog! My dog has severe anxiety and I noticed that the days he exercised, he felt better than the days he did not. I bought the FitBark to help me find the right amount of daily exercise he needed to stay calm and relaxed. As they say "A tired dog is a good dog!" When I first got the FitBark, I had issues syncing the device. I reached out to customer support and within minutes they responded. This was at 8 pm!

Great way to bond with my dog!

My dog has severe anxiety and I noticed that the days he exercised, he felt better than the days he did not. I bought the FitBark to help me find the right amount of daily exercise he needed to stay calm and relaxed. As they say “A tired dog is a good dog!” When I first got the FitBark, I had issues syncing the device. I reached out to customer support and within minutes they responded. This was at 8 pm! They walked me through step by step and before I knew it, we were able to see my dogs activity. I love that you can record daily notes and see how your pets activity compares to other dogs. I’m excited to tell everyone about FitBark and keep building my dogs health, happiness, and our bond.

Incredibly tiny and elegant!!! My pup has no idea she's wearing a fitbark and the mobile app is just perfect to understand what she's up to. Happy mom here.

I absolutely love Fitbark. I stumbled on this product in Amazon Launchpad, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Device:
I really like that the device is small, but the color pops enough for me to notice if it’s potentially missing. The Fitbark hasn’t bothered my dog and is barely noticeable to anyone who is not looking for something on his neck. I’m actually surprised I like the blue. I was worried the color would pop too much and look cheesy, but that turned out to not be the case at all. It’s very cute.

App:
I like that the app breaks out the dog’s activity per hour. I can use it to determine whether my husband fed our dog based on the movements my dog made. It also forces both me and my husband to be honest about the exercise we give our dog.

The app is pretty but a bit clunky. It took me a day or so to navigate, and I used Facebook’s Fitbark Friends page for assistance. The way to add friends is not intuitive. I have to rely on the Facebook page to find people to connect with. From what I’ve heard, the developers have been improving the app significantly, so I’m excited to see the new updates in store.

Overall:
I’m very satisfied with Fitbark. The Bark point goals really does do a great job predicting the amount of points my dog needs. My dog is half border collie half corgi, so he tends to be naturally energetic. I used to think his hyperactive spurts in the house were part of his breed. Since I’ve gotten Fitbark, I’ve been able to monitor his energy levels so closely that I’ve almost completely eliminated the random bursts of energy. I can definitely say that this product significantly improved my dog’s quality of life and made my home life much more peaceful.

The FitBark holds a charge for quite some time, is easy to use and sturdy. I love my FitBark.

It works just as it says it does, and it's super easy to use! Smaller than I expected too! I have two things to say- first, the device and the app does everything it claims to do. I bought it to better understand my Miniature Labradoodle's activity behavior, especially at daycare when we don't know what she really does there. It was a snap to set up, and it really works. I find myself taking her for walks more just because I'm now accountable for her activity levels. The app works great, but like all apps, I'm sure it will... Fetch More

I have two things to say- first, the device and the app does everything it claims to do. I bought it to better understand my Miniature Labradoodle’s activity behavior, especially at daycare when we don’t know what she really does there. It was a snap to set up, and it really works. I find myself taking her for walks more just because I’m now accountable for her activity levels. The app works great, but like all apps, I’m sure it will continue to get better. It even interfaces with FitBit somehow. Second, the device is smaller and lighter than I expected, which is largely my fault because there are plenty of pictures showing it on other dogs, etc.
Bottom line- it works, it’s fun, and it provides me with useful data for my dog and me. I haven’t tried any of the competing products out there, but after having such a great experience with this one, why would I?
