Great for deeper understanding Lilly and I love the FitBark. It's helped us understand her need to be very active so much better, which in turn has resulted to her being more relaxed and better behaved at home. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand their dogs activity level at an individual pet level.

A month ago I needed to move from a house to an apartment and I was very concerned that Pinko might not find the transition easy and maybe starts barking or howling, especially when the neighbors' dogs do it. I have been relieved to see that he logs very few points when I'm gone, ie. he rests instead of being nervous. This is indeed very useful information!

Love this app!!! Great design and gives so much insight into my puppy's activity.

Incredibly tiny and elegant!!! My pup has no idea she's wearing a fitbark and the mobile app is just perfect to understand what she's up to. Happy mom here.

Co-Jack was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, hence the 12k BarkPoints of activity. The veterinary behaviorist was familiar with your product, so you guys are definitely getting noticed in the veterinary behavior medicine community! She prescribed anxiety meds, and advised us to continue using our FitBark to monitor his improvement. Your work is changing dogs lives for the better!

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.

Amazing tool. The applications and uses for this tool are limitless! The set up and installation couldn't be simpler. I recommend all my dog training clients get one of these because of how easy it is to monitor the activity of your dog when he is with you or away. If your dog has separation anxiety you can tell when and for how long he is acting out from his anxiety. If your dog is overweight or under stimulated you can monitor and control just how much activity he is getting each day. It's amazing, buy one now!

We are really enjoying FitBark and it is helping us to understand why some days we have an excitable dog in the evenings and other days a sleepy one. Unintentionally we found out our trusted dog walker was not so trusted after all.

Pawfect I can't fault FitBark, their customer service is second to none - I bought mine before Christmas and had live chat within the Android app to one of the founders on Christmas day, that's serious commitment to their product. The FitBark itself attaches well and doesn't bother my dog at all. It resists water and mud and is apparently waterproof but not tried yet. The Android app is well designed, easy to sync, easy to compare your dog with another albeit both owners need to have shared email addresses. The best thing so far is being able to compare...

The best thing so far is being able to compare days. We could see how new years eve fireworks at midnight kept our dog restless for 40 minutes, if we didn’t manage to get a walk because of heavy rain we can see how much activity she has missed.

A fitbit for your dog. Easy integration, great tool and small! I live an active lifestyle and have a dog that is helping to make me active with our frequent activity together. I wanted to get a monitor for several reasons, one of which is because the gadgets are just cool, but also to monitor my dog's activity level. I decided on this item based on all the positive reviews. This is a great item. First off this is a lightweight and small item. It barely weighs anything.

A fitbit for your dog. Easy integration, great tool and small!

I live an active lifestyle and have a dog that is helping to make me active with our frequent activity together. I wanted to get a monitor for several reasons, one of which is because the gadgets are just cool, but also to monitor my dog’s activity level.

I decided on this item based on all the positive reviews. This is a great item.

First off this is a lightweight and small item. It barely weighs anything. Set-up was easy. essentially power up the item with the included miniUSB cable after downloading the app and the item should sync. Charge for 1.5 hours and it is ready to go.

There are two included rubber bands that go onto the unit and then this goes around the collar. Although I was initially concerned about this coming off easily, it won’t unless something crazy happens. Plus, the profile is so small it is really like a leash attachment rather than the LED lights you can attach for a night walk.

Once you open the app and you get the item connected, you add the dogs profile, you can add a picture and away you go. The app for IOS is pretty easy to navigate for features. One quibble is I added my dogs picture, but had to look around to edit his info and that should be easier. I found how to change it, but it wasn’t immediately obvious. My hint: Press all the buttons and you discover many new features. (recommendation for software: make a default setting for sharing information something you choose rather than having to set it each time you go to this feature, or have a default setting for sharing information).

Once you get all squared away, you choose an activity level, from low energy to Olympian level and activity gives you points. I like this and the app. which can be set for use with a Fitbit, is pretty similar. I am noticing already that assuming activity levels can be easy when not based on facts. Love striving for a goal for my dog. I like the fact that you can also have others watch and participate in the app. Great feature!

I was also concerned about waterproofing on this item, but the USB plug is encased with a rubber seal that would be difficult to penetrate. As with most items, I would just ensure rinsing off the item with fresh water after an encounter with fresh or salt water.

Overall: I have been looking at various monitors for a while and waited because the technology didn’t quite seem there yet. This item seems to signal that the technology is here and easy to use. I really love the potential of this item and I love being able to understand my animal better in terms of activity. Plus, this is just a neat, cool item. It is small, lightweight, barely noticeable and easy to interact with and use.

Best part? The hardware works well, and software can always be updated now. Awesome.
