Sleep

No more excuses... So far so good! I ordered this for my pup because I know I am being a lazy pet parent and wanted to see how much exercise he is missing out on and to see how much he sleeps while I'm at work. Came super quick and it's really easy to set up. I can't wait to get home to see how my baby was while I was out (we do not have the wifi receiver so I can only see his progress once I get home and sync with him). He is only 9lbs and I...

He is only 9lbs and I love how the tracker is super light and cute. I also love how Amazon customer service replied to my concerns and fixed them immediately. I am so glad I purchased thru Amazon.

Love FitBark! I'm loving this little gadget, helpa me know what my dog is up to when left alone. And I know know how much he sleeps.... and now I know how much more active he needs to be. Love FitBark!!

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!

I had some problems with the initial install and their support chat was very quick, helpful and thorough. Now that the FitBark is working, I love the insight it gives me into my puppy's life.

FitBark customer service is wonderful. I had some problems with the initial install and their support chat was very quick, helpful and thorough. Now that the FitBark is working, I love the insight it gives me into my puppy’s life. I notice that if she is up and restless at night she can be a little “off” during the day. I’ve also noticed that she doesn’t behave well if she doesn’t get enough exercise OR if she gets too much! I can check her FitBark and realize she’s just had enough of a day and it’s time for bed. The FitBark holds a charge for quite some time, is easy to use and sturdy. I love my FitBark.

Changed Pippie’s life I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day.

Changed Pippie’s life

I’ve been waiting a long time for a product like this and I have looked at and tried others but none did exactly what I wanted them to do. I have a 14 yr old jack russle with terrible problems in her back joints and arthritis and I travel a lot for work. With fitbark, I can not only keep any eye on how active she is, and if my dog walker is walking her as much as he’s supposed to be, but I can also tell if she has had her medication that day. If she hasn’t her activity levels are way down and her rest is way up. Last week I even got an alert that “Pippie is resting more than normal, is she ok?” She had already had her medication that day so, I made an appointment with our Vet and showed her the Fitbark app and Pippie’s play and rest times. First, my Vet asked where he could get one and I also showed him how I could share Pippie’s information with him to help keep an eye on her. He adjusted her medication and my girl is back up to her normal playful self. Pippie loves Fitbark, thank you!!!

Great tech item My dog is literally rocking the "rest" fitbarks!! Seriously the average target "fitbarks" for my Golden based on his age and size is a good guide and my kids are now not cutting his walks short! No wonder he sleeps a lot during the day he does have some restless nights. So far enjoying it, it is easy to set up the app and gadget.

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!

So far it's a lot of fun. We use FitBark most in ways you might not expect. For example, as a puppy being crate trained and house trained we use it in the middle of the night to see if she's moving around in her crate. If she is, we get up and walk her. If not we go back to sleep without waking her. We use it to measure our crate training progress. We also use it to see if our schedule is consistent. Consistency seems to be key, so we can see if we're walking her at the... Fetch More

We also use it to see if our schedule is consistent. Consistency seems to be key, so we can see if we’re walking her at the same times every day and if we’re walking her when we should.

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

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 have been looking for something like this for ages I have been looking for something like this for ages, fits neatly on to the collar and measures her movements day and night which is quite interesting.
