FitBark is GREAT I love the FitBark for my girls. I have two Border Collies, a 12 year old and a 2 year old. It has been amazing to see how much activity they are getting in a day.

FitBark is GREAT

I love the FitBark for my girls. I have two Border Collies, a 12 year old and a 2 year old. It has been amazing to see how much activity they are getting in a day. I bought them originally because I was concern about my older girl and it is an amazing tool/reminder to me how much I need to be involved in ensure that she gets the exercise she needs to stay healthy. I have also found it beneficial in understand the younger one too. I can attest that it is waterproof and the battery life has been about 1 week with a fast charge time. I love the app and detailed information it proved. The bonus for me is that I am actually hitting my FitBit targets now that I am making sure my girls hit their goals. I would recommend it to anyone and have told all my friends with dogs about the FitBark.

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

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 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!

Excellent Customer Service! I received the fitbark as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it! It has made me more aware of my pup's activity levels and I just bought a Fitbit to join the fun and get active with my dog! We had a small issue and the developers were quick to respond, extremely helpful, and resolved the issue right away!

Excellent Activity Tracker for Dogs This is an excellent product for tracking your dog's activity levels and monitoring health. It works very well and the product is definitely waterproof within the spectrum of use provided. On the human side, for comparison, this product has never failed or broken whereas I have been an avid user of many versions of Fitbit and Jawbone activity trackers, all of which have failed multiple times. The associated app for the product continues to get better and better.

Useful tool This product is wonderful for making sure your pup or adult dog is getting enough exercise! It pairs up using Bluetooth making it quick and easy to get the data straight to your phone. However, because the fitbark emmits such a low Bluetooth signal the fitbark won't pair unless you are close to your pet. So you'll have to wait till you get home to see how active they were. Though it is a wonderful device because it compares your pets data with similar breeds and size of dog as well as what percentile he is in of... Fetch More

This product is wonderful for making sure your pup or adult dog is getting enough exercise! It pairs up using Bluetooth making it quick and easy to get the data straight to your phone. However, because the fitbark emmits such a low Bluetooth signal the fitbark won’t pair unless you are close to your pet. So you’ll have to wait till you get home to see how active they were. Though it is a wonderful device because it compares your pets data with similar breeds and size of dog as well as what percentile he is in of all the fit bark users. So in case you are unsure of where to set your goal they have some data to offer suggestions. We got ours because our blueheeler/beegle mix didn’t seem to be getting enough energy out. So we set the average goal and found out he had more to burn. It is a great way to keep your pet healthy and active. As well as keeping yourself in good shape too! The fitbark companion app also syncs up the data from your fitbit as well. If you have a cuddly critter that you think needs more or less exercise then this is a great way to manage that, plus you can earn bragging rights for the amount of barkpoints your pet earns! Plus you can add other pets of friends with fitbark to a friends list and compare and compete with them it is lots of fun for homosapien and kanine.

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.

I have both FitBark & Fitbit. The gentle competition with other dogs is very motivating. And yes David and his 3 Chihuahua's from NYC are inspiring and certainly give my working cocker spaniel a run for her money!!! It definitely encourages me to get my girl out for a decent afternoon walkies.

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’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 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.

Penny loves to track scents at the dog park, and she is able to be off leash in the fenced area so it is incredible to me to be able to see this in graphs and numbers! We also walk in the park after... Most of the time we are weekend warriors, but I'm on vacation right now. The fitbark has made this a lot more fun! Penny and I have a great competition now with my Fitbit... However Penny keeps winning!

Longer walks My girlfriend gets a kick out of tracking our little dog's daily activity, or lack thereof. It has actually motivated me to take her on longer walks! A nice gift for the animal lover.
