Exercise & Preventative Care

The Awesome FitBit for Furbabies! I purchased this product looking for a pets equivalent to Fitbit. This is the ultimate. It even integrates with fitbit to see your progress together. Batty, my minpin, was 13 lbs at his last vet visit and so the vet placed him on orders of an additional long walk per day. Therefore I wanted a better way to see how he was doing like I see mine, as well as walking him the long walk every day. I'm more than pleased with this!

I purchased this product looking for a pets equivalent to Fitbit. This is the ultimate. It even integrates with fitbit to see your progress together.

Therefore I wanted a better way to see how he was doing like I see mine, as well as walking him the long walk every day. I’m more than pleased with this! While the android app is in Beta, it works great on BlackBerry 10 devices as well as android, and the Apple app is impressive too! Kudos and thank you! If you have fitbit and a furbaby, you need to get this for your pup!

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 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.

Awesome little activity monitor! I've had my FitBark now for about a year. It works great. I can see my dogs activity (or lack there of) level. It automatically syncs when the app is open and in close proximity (10-15ft) to my dog. About a month ago it broke. My dog was marking a bone and I think rubbed on it a little too roughly. I contacted thier support staff and Sara was very nice and offered me a replacement device at no cost. She included a RMA slip so I could return the broken devise to them. I have... Fetch More

I contacted thier support staff and Sara was very nice and offered me a replacement device at no cost. She included a RMA slip so I could return the broken devise to them. I have seen this company grow in terms of what their product and the app offer. I am very impressed with both their product and their staff. As more dogs are using FitBark the averages (daily activity) for breed and size of dog keep getting better. They also recently added an option where you can sync your fitbit within FitBark. this way you can see your activity right next to your dog’s on a daily basis.

Best Pet Accessory EVER! This thing is absolutely incredible, and the company behind it is amazing as well! The interface on the app is very slick, informative, and accurate! It is a great way to know what your pup is up to when you are not with them, or just to track each day's activity! So much fun. Also compatible with the fitbit and other fitness apps to compare the pups to their humans! The fitbark itself is pretty wicked, but what makes the experience SO awesome is the ability to get in touch with support chat instantly via the app,... Fetch More

I have recommended this to all dog owners I know and meet and I recommend it to you!!!

Great tool for the conscientious dog owner I love this tool! It's an awesome complement to my fitbit charge hr! I give it a 4 instead of a 5 because getting to know the app takes some time and work. Once you get it all figured out though the data tracking is awesome! I have a Weimaraner and I live in an apartment, but I am also a runner and very active. As a breed that requires a lot of exercise, I really feel like it helps me better gage if my fur baby is getting his needs met, especially... Fetch More

As a breed that requires a lot of exercise, I really feel like it helps me better gage if my fur baby is getting his needs met, especially since he is crated for about 8 hours of his day. I recommend it to anyone who is conscientious about their best friends whole being! Plus, the fitbark team is very kind, quick, and eager to help you, as you help them create a better device and app!

Review. This monitor attaches to the collar with elastic bands. I was a bit wary how it would hold up but so far my hyperactive Cocker and her best friend - a boisterous doberman pup have failed to dislodge it. One charge lasts about a week and it comes with the necessary USB cable. It is an interesting device and tracks what your dog gets up to during the day Rest - Self explanatory, Active - pottering about, Play - running about or playing tug.

This monitor attaches to the collar with elastic bands. I was a bit wary how it would hold up but so far my hyperactive Cocker and her best friend – a boisterous doberman pup have failed to dislodge it.
One charge lasts about a week and it comes with the necessary USB cable.
It is an interesting device and tracks what your dog gets up to during the day Rest – Self explanatory, Active – pottering about, Play – running about or playing tug. I find myself looking two or three times a day and sending the results to my partner who works away a lot so he can also see.
Its answered the question about what she gets up to during the day while I am at work (sleeps by looks of things!) and I can link it to my fitbit to compare what we did and compare it to other dogs of the same type/age. I can monitor how much exercise we get on a day to day basis and how many “play points” she earns during her weekly flyball class.

I would like some way of GPS tracking for her to see how far she travels on her walks compared to me and map them, but as mentioned there is a way to link it to the fitbit so I can make a rough estimate of what she does compared to me and I can map our walks on the fitbit anyway.

Oscar is a Puggle who we adopted from an Amish farm when he was about 12 weeks old. We do not know the size of his parents, nor are we aware of the existence of any litter mates. He is overweight for sure, and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a little over a year ago. Even on the medication and prescription food, he has maintained the same weight (~ 55-58#) for a while.

FitBark (combined with my Fitbit) fits right into what we are trying to accomplish with Oscar’s health. He will be 4 years old in April, and we want to be sure he’s around for a long time.

Every dog owner should get one! I bought my fitbark from the supplier directly before they started to sell on amazon; but I have enjoyed using it so much I felt that I had to review it. I bought this shortly after we got our puppy (she was around 10/11 weeks when we started to use it); it is a nice small device that clips over your dogs collar. Even on a tiny west highland terrier it isn't too big. We were finding it hard to judge how much exercise daisy was getting (especially day to day). The fitbarks point... Fetch More

I bought my fitbark from the supplier directly before they started to sell on amazon; but I have enjoyed using it so much I felt that I had to review it.

I bought this shortly after we got our puppy (she was around 10/11 weeks when we started to use it); it is a nice small device that clips over your dogs collar. Even on a tiny west highland terrier it isn’t too big. We were finding it hard to judge how much exercise daisy was getting (especially day to day). The fitbarks point system makes it easy to tell how active she has been throughout the day (when we are there or when she is left at home); it also tells you how many hours the pup has been active, resting, etc in a day.

They have recently added features allowing you to compare your dog by age and breed to others in their dataset. I am glad to say that Daisy is getting about the right amount of exercise for a westie her age! In summary I think that all dog owners should get one of these, simple low in price and a great tool!

Great little tracker Does what you expect, and I've certainly kept an eye to try and ensure my dog is getting his quota (and more than average if poss). The ability to compare activity over time is the key here, rather than thinking you are getting accurate step counting or absolute definitive times for different activity. The phone app could be improved (the bluetooth sync seems to take two rounds of "fetching" the data for me), and would be nice to have more stats/info, however, it all does what it needs to do, so given the alternative of no information,...

Battery tends to last the week, so i charge it up for 90mins sunday evening and good to go. The app has a battery monitor icon to indicate if in need of a charge, so check in every day on it.

It's easy to set up and simple to use This is a well-designed product. It's easy to set up and simple to use. We bought a Whistle and returned it because the set up was complicated and ultimately unsuccessful. We returned the Whistle, got a fitbark and had it up and running in no time. Our Enzo is one lucky doggie 🙂
