Co-Jack was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, hence the 12k BarkPoints of activity. The veterinary behaviorist was familiar with your product, so you guys are definitely getting noticed in the veterinary behavior medicine community! She prescribed anxiety meds, and advised us to continue using our FitBark to monitor his improvement. Your work is changing dogs lives for the better!

We are really enjoying FitBark and it is helping us to understand why some days we have an excitable dog in the evenings and other days a sleepy one. Unintentionally we found out our trusted dog walker was not so trusted after all.

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.

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.

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 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.

Dog Trainer's New Favorite Toy I've just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I'm excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor. First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I've yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great.

Dog Trainer’s New Favorite Toy

I’ve just completed set-up for my second FitBark, and just as I was with my first FitBark, I’m excited at all the fun to be had with this activity monitor.
First the basics: The app is easily my favorite part! The set-up is quick and easy. The interface is stellar, and I’ve yet to encounter any glitches. As a dog trainer, I make sure that my dogs get plenty of exercise, but this device and the accompanying phone app make it more fun and quantifies everything into numerical data, which is great. The best application i have found for my own dogs though, are the times when I am away and have to leave them in the care of someone else. I can monitor their activity and pair their FitBark devices with the dog sitter’s mobile device so that the individual can reference how much activity I expect from them in a clear way, without confusion or uncertainty. Furthermore, I’ve convinced a few clients to order these so that I can monitor their dogs to determine if they are doing the necessary amount of work needed to properly condition in obedience commands the way they are instructed to do so between lessons with me. The FitBark quantifies everything for them to help give a tangible goal to improve/maintain not only the physical health of their dog, but the dog’s mental health through training exercises. My clients tell me that FitBark helps keep them on track and I can see it for myself. My girlfriend loves my FitBark monitors too, as they allow her to see how much activity our dogs get by virtue of my full-time employment as an independent trainer. Of course, she teases me when “her” dog, ‘Chivo’, gets more points than “my” dog, ‘Jarvis’. All in all, the applications for a FitBark are endless and I can’t wait to see what other things people think of that I haven’t yet!

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.

Great for deeper understanding Lilly and I love the FitBark. It's helped us understand her need to be very active so much better, which in turn has resulted to her being more relaxed and better behaved at home. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand their dogs activity level at an individual pet level.

Thank you for all your help and your part in supporting such a lovely product! As I've said before, it's been a real life saver in managing my dog's exercise data, and consequently his behavior!

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.

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!
