Sleep

We don't talk about it much but FitBark monitors sleep too. And a big change in sleeping habits is nearly always an indicator of illness. Last year, it was noticing the uptick in sleeping hours, that got our pup to the vet sooner rather than later. For most of us there's a huge chunk of time when we're not with our furry friends. FitBark helps fill in that missing information.

Big Fan of Fitbark aka fitbit for dogs I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing. I was lucky enough to acquire a Fitbark by a chance encounter at SXSW this past Spring. I’ve been using it ever since then and have nothing but great things to say.

Big Fan of Fitbark aka fitbit for dogs

I’m a big fan of Fitbark. It helps keep my dog healthy and is generally a cool thing.

I was lucky enough to acquire a Fitbark by a chance encounter at SXSW this past Spring. I’ve been using it ever since then and have nothing but great things to say.

I’ve found several uses for Fitbark. For one, it helps my dog stay healthy in terms of exercise. In the past there were many times when I would only walk my dog for bathroom breaks, but thanks to Fitbark, I can see how long of a walk I need to take to ensure he gets the amount of energy required. Secondly, I’ve started to notice when Trevor has nighttime activity, which I can then map back to lack of exercise or him eating other types of foods. Finally it helps me monitor Trevor’s separation anxiety. Whenever I leave the house, he’s super active until he settles down. Thanks to Fitbark, I learned that the anxiety got better over time. That’s a great thing to know for any caring dog owner.

The app is pretty slick, it shows you your dog’s activity over days and weeks. All in all it’s a great way to improve your dog’s health.

Love the app, love the Fitbark! Absolutely in love with this app and device! The app is so user friendly and so easy to link to the Fitbark. I love monitoring my dog's activity and rest levels.

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.

I have a lovely 2 year old lab with big floppy ears, but I can't keep her out of the water. As a result, she has a chronic ear infection problem. I love Fitbark, I can check in the morning to see how she slept. If she has lots of points I know something is bothering her. I can then check her ears to head off the problem. Thank you Fitbark!

Small and easy to use I have a Shih Tzu and was worried the Fitbark would be bulky around his neck. I didn't need to worry as its really small and quite discreet. It doesn't bother him at all. The app was easy to install however takes some playing about with to get best out of product. However the basics of the product are really easy to navigate. The product does what it says on the tin and we find it interesting especially looking at our dog's sleeping habits. If you're curious as to whether your dog is getting enough... Fetch More

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.

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 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!

When I got up this morning, I opened the FitBark app and noticed that Ruby was up in the night as her sleep score was low. I checked her ears and what do you know? Her chronic ear infection was back.

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!!!
