Content through the Service is for informational purposes only and is not intended to replace the relationship between you and your veterinarian or other medical providers. We are not a licensed veterinary provider and have no expertise in diagnosing, examining, or treating medical conditions of any kind, or in determining the effect of any specific exercise on a medical condition that your dog may have. You should always consult a veterinarian before starting a fitness program, changing your diet or if you have any questions regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on or through the Services.

You should understand that when your dog participates in any exercise or exercise program, there is the possibility of animal or human physical injury and/or death. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your veterinarian immediately. Dogs who are prone to ingesting or chewing physical objects should not use the Service unless such use is directed and closely monitored by a veterinarian. By using the Service, you represent that you have received consent from your veterinarian to participate in the Service.

We are not responsible for any health problems that you or your dog may develop resulting from training programs, products, or events you learn about through the Service. If you or your dog engage in an exercise program you receive or learn about through the Service, you agree that you do so at your own risk and are voluntarily participating in these activities.

We are not responsible for animal or human death. Consult your veterinarian before your dog engages in an exercise plan. Do not get your dog a FitBark if he is prone to ingesting socks or any other physical products.


You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless FitBark Inc. and its licensee and licensors, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees), resulting from or arising out of a) your use and access of the Service, by you or any person using your Account and password; b) a breach of these Terms, or c) Content and User Content posted on the Service.
