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 itself is not intuitive but it functions with few issues once you calibrate the hardware device. It is quite good as long as you don't get it wet. They claim that it is water resistant but don't test it or you will be sorry. I tried to get it fixed or replaced, they were not helpful. This new one was a gift which made me chuckle. The battery lasts for months (non-GPS) which scores a star. No advertising inside the app is nice. Otherwise, "All Day Sync" is meaningless. Fix your own app.

Hello! Thank you for rating us. Please share your ideas on how we can make the app better at We would also like to look into the issue you experienced, as the FitBark’s waterproof specification is IPX7 (can be submerged up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes). Thank you.

The customer service is excellent. They keep trying, trying, and trying until they figure out a solution. However, this will be the last fitbark for us. We have the one without GPS, and it won't sync anymore. You have to keep a phone or old tablet nearby, and even then, it takes several minutes to get it to sync. If you are not personally next to the fit bark for a day, you will lose the data, and it records as zero points. I wish they kept the base, but they have done away with it.

I received the Fitbark unit fast. It was extremely easy to setup and install. Thank God my dog hasn't got lost, so I have not used the tracking under stress, but I've checked it a few times on short trips away from home, and Fitbark recognized the trips and reported them. So I have no doubt it will work if it's ever needed. I have had a couple of app/technical questions, and the staff has always responded quickly, nicely, and most times followed up after the fact. Great product. Highly recommend
