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

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).

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 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.

I absolutely love Fitbark. I stumbled on this product in Amazon …

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.

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.

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!

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!

Love this app!!! Great design and gives so much insight into my puppy's activity.

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!

Pawfect I can't fault FitBark, their customer service is second to none - I bought mine before Christmas and had live chat within the Android app to one of the founders on Christmas day, that's serious commitment to their product. The FitBark itself attaches well and doesn't bother my dog at all. It resists water and mud and is apparently waterproof but not tried yet. The Android app is well designed, easy to sync, easy to compare your dog with another albeit both owners need to have shared email addresses. The best thing so far is being able to compare...

The best thing so far is being able to compare days. We could see how new years eve fireworks at midnight kept our dog restless for 40 minutes, if we didn’t manage to get a walk because of heavy rain we can see how much activity she has missed.

Absolutely wonderful My dog is slowly reaching his senior years, though still considered an adult, and I don’t want to lose him. I’ve been noticing that he’s been very lazy, lethargic, and gaining weight — as many middle-aged beings tend to be 🙂 So I thought — okay, I’ll give this a whirl. I seriously felt silly buying this. “What am I doing, buying this gimmick?” I thought; but the reviews “talked me into” giving this a try, anyway. So now we’ve been using it. It’s been a number of weeks now, and we are THRILLED. The app could definitely... Fetch More

So now we’ve been using it. It’s been a number of weeks now, and we are THRILLED. The app could definitely use some work, it definitely takes a bit too long to fetch and load and all of that, but that’s peanuts, and the device itself is awesome. We’re thrilled. And tired. 😀

In the picture: Boo, my dog, with his fashionable FitBark, after a grueling workout 🙂

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.
