About this app

Every day, get alerted when your pup leaves a safe place. In an emergency, track your dog from your mobile phone*. With 24/7 activity & sleep monitoring, FitBark is a new way to motivate you and your dog to be active, explain changes in behavior, and make better decisions about mobility, anxiety and skin conditions.

Note: This app requires a FitBark GPS, FitBark 2 or FitBark Dog Activity Monitor.

Create multiple safe zones around familiar Wi-Fi networks (e.g. home, daycare, friend’s house) and get alerted when your pup leaves or enters one of these safe areas.

In case of emergency, quickly locate your dog anywhere in the U.S. via the embedded cellular service. Receive 1-minute location updates until you reunite with your dog.

🐾💤 MONITOR ACTIVITY & SLEEP 24/7. Track minute-by-minute activity, sleep quality, distance traveled, calories burned, and overall health and behavior. Set an ideal health goal, and rank your dog vs. breed, age and weight peers.

🏃‍♀️ LINK YOUR HUMAN HEALTH TRACKER. Get active with your dog! Link your Fitbit or Google Fit device and stay healthy together. Talk about motivation!

🐩 MONITOR MOBILITY & PAIN. Invite your trainer or veterinarian to monitor changes in mobility, osteoarthritis, or orthopedic rehabilitation. Follow the FitBark Health Index to catch early signs of discomfort or disease.

🐕 MONITOR STRESS & ANXIETY. Glance at the Hourly View after you leave home to get valuable clues about your dog's anxiety levels and how he or she is doing when alone, or while in the care of other humans.

🐶 MONITOR ITCHINESS & SKIN DISEASES. Keep tabs on the FitBark nightly Sleep Score to track the development of skin conditions over time, such as atopic dermatitis, infectious dermatitis, hot spots, or flea allergies.

🎓 ADOPTED BY 100+ RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS. FitBark is loved by dog parents and veterinarians in 140+ countries, including researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Mayo Clinic.

*Location-based features are only available for the FitBark GPS (U.S. only).

FitBark is entirely dedicated to getting you and your pup healthy together. And making it fun! Say hello at 🐾

The app is great but the app loading and syncing are slow. Data won't sync in the background and there is no way to check the battery level so you don't know when you need to charge. Also we got the non-gps version tracker and whenever we took our dog for a run, it underestimates the mileage. My GPS tracker on my wrist showed we ran for 4 miles but the dog tracker would estimate for 2.5, so I think the points system might not be 100% accurate.

So, after major initial problems with battery life, i was ready to throw in the towel. However, the FitBark team was outstanding, and worked with me over the course of almost a week assisting me with trouble shooting. Together, we figured out a dns issue on my router, blocking the FitBarks from connecting to the server, so they were draining the battery using the cell network. Once i fixed my router issues, they work perfectly. Great battery life, customer support, and product!

Did a bunch of research before deciding to go with FitBark. There was a connection glitch when I first went to set it up but the customer service was AMAZING! The chat feature connected me to someone right away and we spent all the time necessary to fix the issue. It was easy to attach to my dogs collar and it's held up perfectly even after multiple visits to dog park. The app itself takes time to get used to as far as where to find certain things. But after you get used to it, no problems.
