Love it! Helped my older chubby Golden lose weight My older Golden was looking chubby so I was looking for apps & stumbled on this. People think it's so funny to have a Fitbit for a dog but I had cut back on her food & wanted to work on her exercise. This has been a great tool! I found out on the 3 days I work she doesn't move much even though there is another dog there ( who's thin). So I'm walking her before work.

Love it! Helped my older chubby Golden lose weight

My older Golden was looking chubby so I was looking for apps & stumbled on this. People think it’s so funny to have a Fitbit for a dog but I had cut back on her food & wanted to work on her exercise. This has been a great tool! I found out on the 3 days I work she doesn’t move much even though there is another dog there ( who’s thin). So I’m walking her before work. You can track the hours she’s active, days & months, even compare with other similar dogs & compete with friends dogs. They set a goal for you or you can customize it which I did cause we’d never make the one they had set- I will increase it as we go along. I especially like that when summer comes we can count her swimming too. She has lost 3 pounds! Only 2 more to go. I can tell she feels better. I didn’t want to have her die early just because she was fat- that’s the owners fault. This app helps me stay focused & not get too busy & forget to help her stay on track. Oh & you can even track your own Fitbit next to the dog if you want too. Everything was easy to use & understand. So glad I found this.

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!

Greatest product ever! I am totally getting Nougat to move around more.

Great device • Great app I should start by saying I read an article about 5 things you may be doing to crush your dogs spirit. The very first thing was not taking your dog on a walk as often as you should. Admittedly, I am guilty of this and I do NOT want to crush the spirit of any dog! So I looked at several styles of activity trackers and decided to try the FitBark. I think seeing their actual activity level will either guilt me into getting busy with them or make me proud of how we're doing.... Fetch More

I think seeing their actual activity level will either guilt me into getting busy with them or make me proud of how we’re doing.
I’ve only been using my FitBark for about a week. I have 3 dogs (a Mastiff and 2 Yorkies) and it’s been fun to see what time of day they’re most active and just how active they really are.
I bought one for each of my daughters dogs too (an Australian Shepard and a Boxer).
All of the dogs are ‘friends’, on the app, so we can see how active they’ve been, even when we’re all living in different cities. When they’re all together there’s a HUGE jump in play/active time.
It’s nice to be able to add notes to each day as well. You can go back and see if their activity, or lack thereof, is mirrored by health issues (diarrhea, decreased appetite, etc). I haven’t been using it long enough to take advantage of this feature but I like having that option available.
The staff is amazing! When I’ve asked questions through the app, I thought I’d have to wait several hours for a response; not so! The support has been much higher than I expected it to be. You’re made to feel like one of the FitBark family. I like having the ability to send photos too. I can include a screen shot with my question(s) which helps me explain my question and, I assume, it likely helps them to see what I’m talking about.
I don’t consider myself to be a very tech savvy individual but I have found the app and FitBark set up to be quite straightforward and simple. If I can do it, anybody can do it!
I’ve purchased 5 FitBarks, for my dogs and as gifts, and I feel it will prove to be a great investment in our dogs’ health. And we’ll benefit as well.

Fantastic App, great customer service! With the latest update, the folks at fitbark made an already great app fantastic. We have three fitBark dogs and at a glance we can see if they are getting enough sleep and exercise. It's very easy to dive in to get more data on a particular dog or look at larger trends, like sleep over the past month. We really love the new Top Dog Board which ranks our pups in the house by activity. It also provides stats on similar dogs so you know how you're dogs doing in comparison. This is super...

We really love the new Top Dog Board which ranks our pups in the house by activity. It also provides stats on similar dogs so you know how you’re dogs doing in comparison. This is super helpful since we have three dogs ranging from 3 months to 10 years and they obviously require different levels of playtime.

We really love this update. The customer service at Fitbark is amazing. They go out of their way to help and make sure your issue is resolved.

If you’re looking for an activity tracker for your dog this is the best one on the market.

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.

Very Impressed I've been using the FitBark for over a week now with our 3 year old Maltese. I was very happy to see that it was much smaller than I had expected it to be. It was easy to place on his collar, and he doesn't mind wearing it at all. The app is very user friendly and helpful for the set up process. It is amazing to be able to monitor your dogs level of activity, and it has influenced us to take longer walks and stay more active. The app makes it easy to set and change... Fetch More

It is amazing to be able to monitor your dogs level of activity, and it has influenced us to take longer walks and stay more active. The app makes it easy to set and change your dogs goal for the day, and monitor his progress via Bluetooth connection with your phone. I’ve tried a couple other pet “wearables” and the FitBark is the best I’ve come across so far.

We Love Our FitBarks

Bought two of these via Kickstarter and a third via Fitbark.com — ahead of when amazon was selling them. I’ve also got the wifi base station and using all of this via iOS.

First off — for a gen1 solution, I’ve been very impressed with device and how responsive the customer support folks are when working through challenges.

I had some initial setup issues with my home wifi (not related to fitbark) that was causing issues with the wifi base station. Working with their customer support, we figured out the issue .. And it was due to my net gear router .. Not fit bark’s fault.

The customer support team is very helpful with my questions – and has taken a few suggestions for enhancements on the iOS app, the wifi base station, and device itself.

Have not had any issues with the devices failing and I’m getting about a week between battery charges.

This is a great way to monitor the health and activity levels of your dogs — and encourages you to spend more time with your pups!

I am really enjoying the FitBark. At first, I thought it was something fun to see how much Waffles and Victoria moved and their activity levels. Now I love seeing what I need to do to keep them active and healthy. It helps me see where I was slacking. This really is a great tool to help keep them healthy and happy. We strive to reach our goal. We need puppy points!

Loving the FitBark! We got a FitBark for our little dog as we wanted to ensure he was active enough even though my wife and I both work during the day. The FitBark allows us, through their proprietary FitBark Points, to see how active he's been during the day whilst we're out (usually not very!) and gives us a target to aim for to push us to get him out and moving.

As proponents of the human equivalent, FitBit, the Bluetooth connectivity and interactive app (which is, as yet, by no means perfect but is always being worked on and improved) were familiar and easy enough to use.
The customer service at FitBark is excellent and their staff are always willing to help and answer queries. If you’re a fan activity trackers and want to get your canine buddies involved too, the FitBark fits the bill perfectly.
