Fantastic activity tracker for dogs! I bought 2 of these for our dogs. My husband and I both own a Fitbit and thought it would be fun to track our dogs activities too! We looked into it and discovered FitBark! Well we haven't been disappointed. The dogs receive bark points each day based on their activity not steps, however they explain why this is. Essentially it's impossible to track steps in dogs as their movements vary so much. However it's pretty accurate with picking up play time/ rest time and when they are active.

Well we haven’t been disappointed. The dogs receive bark points each day based on their activity not steps, however they explain why this is. Essentially it’s impossible to track steps in dogs as their movements vary so much. However it’s pretty accurate with picking up play time/ rest time and when they are active.
I’ve also been really impressed with the customer support. For a small company they go out of their way to make sure you are happy and are always on the end of a live chat to help if you have any problems.

The app that supports it is good as well and we can even track our activity against the dogs in the weekly view!

Tracking how active the dogs have been also allows us to make adjustments to feeding.

The battery lasts a long time and we have had no issues with the product. I imagine if you did have any issues their customer service would be excellent. They really care about the brand and the experience you have with their product.

Overall I’m really happy with my purchase.

Leveraging the dog-owner relationship with a focus on monitoring the pet's physical activity is highly innovative. Platforms like FitBark have the potential to get both pets and people moving together and improve health outcomes for all.

Fun for pups and people, great product support team FitBark is a fun way to help you and your dog stay fit! The level of service from the company has been consistently amazing and they have always been incredibly responsive to questions. The product is fun and easy to use. You securely attach it to your dog's collar, install the mobile FitBark app and you're ready to roll! There's also a new FitBark community on Facebook where you can virtually follow other dogs and compare their daily activity with yours.

Five Stars Good to relate our cocker spaniels ground coverage in relation to my Fitbit.

A great and nifty product, well worth buying. The FitBark is an awesome product. The app is clever and provides some clear, and relevant information. I'm looking forward to seeing how this product develops, but will continue to use it! It's well packaged, and easy to set up with clear instructions. The support team respond very quickly to queries, and are very friendly and helpful. There's a growing community of users on Facebook with whom you can share information and find dogs similar to yours to "friend" on the app to compete/compare as you'd like. Would definitely recommend. It links... Fetch More

It links my FitBit account which is awesome, shows me my target and the dog’s on the same graphs. Some more integration would be amazing, although I’m unsure what I’d like to see really at this stage!

There are a few things which could be better though. The additional wifi charging station is very expensive, so I don’t have it, which means my dogs data only sync when I ask it to via my app. I’m hoping that something will change with this in future development of the product though, and I’d still happily give it 5 stars.

Keep those paws moving Great set of tools in the app that really give insight into your pet's activities (or lack there of). Having a lot of fun tracking Murphy's adventures. This weekend I will match it up with my FitBit ... I have a feeling he will put me to shame!

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 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.

I find this super helpful to see if she's had enough exercise, or is due for more. I can see if she just slept all day or if she played or was taken for a walk while I was at work. It is helping me and my family change OUR habits to help her ūüôā

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!

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!
