Keep an eye on your dog's activity
FitBark controls and tracks the daily activity of your dog. It has turned it into BarkPoints so you can track its progress on your smartphone. Fitbark is a new way to understand your dog's health, interpret changes in its behavior, make better decisions with your veterinarian and share memorable moments with your friends and family!
SMALL, SOLID, LIGHT, COMFORTABLE, WATERPROOF AND BUILT-IN BATTERY
FitBark is the world's smallest wireless dog activity tracker. We have designed it for them and for you. It is so comfortable that your dog will not even realize its presence. It is also very easy to use ... for a human;)
Fitbark is waterproof, incorporates a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 14 days and uses bluetooth technology!
HOW IS YOUR DOG TODAY ?
Redefine the way you understand your pet, its health and behavior:
-For dogs that love to be taken care of: watch his activity when someone else takes care of your dog.
-For dogs with health problems: monitor their response to different treatments.
-For active dogs: watch the progress of their activity while sharing the same sports experiences.
FROM HEAD TO TAIL
Understanding your dog's health: Follow your dog's activity and act on it: How does it feel? How many BarkPoints has it accumulated today? How does its physical state evolve in the last hours / days / months? How does he react to an event that changes his daily life?
Explain a change in behavior: To understand what type of day it is living by following the passing time at different stages of energy level. Maybe if your dog sleeps 4 more hours it's because it is starting to get sick?
Make better decisions with your veterinarian: Trace your dog's health and activity in the past and can see if it recovers well from a disease or other care.
Compare with other dogs: Fitbark gives you tips and information by breeds, so you can compare your dog with other dogs of the same breed. Is it as active as you think? Does it sleep more or less than other dogs?

Fitbark is an American company based in New York. The FitBark team is fortunate to have the support of several other incredibly talented people from Italy and other countries (notably to develop the design of our products).
As a dog lovers, we always wonder if we are doing everything it takes to keep our dogs happy and healthy. We know that an active lifestyle promotes health in general and avoids physical and mental illnesses. Yet there are no secret recipes to measure and improve activity and health over time.
That's why we developed FitBark, an activity monitor for dogs synchronizing with your smartphone to keep an eye on it! Fitbark combines our love for dogs, technology and design into a small product that helps humans understand dogs better. With FitBark, you can stay connected with your dog and get a glimpse of its life, so you'll know when to act. We are a group of passionate people who can not stay away from their dogs ... nor stay away from the technology!
Our widely successful crowdfunding campaign reinforced us in the idea that we were not the only ones!
1. I am a new user. How do I setup a new Fitbark?
- Charge your new FitBark for 90 minutes using the cable provided
- Make sure Bluetooth is on in your iOS or Android device
- Download the FitBark Mobile App for iOS or Android
- Create a new user profile and a new dog profile following the on-screen instructions
2. Does my account support multiples Fitbarks ?
Yes. You can be an owner, follower or veterinarian of as many dogs as you like. You will find all the dogs you’re associated with in your Home Pack and the TopDog Board in the FitBark mobile app.
3. How do I fix a Fitbark on my dog's collar ?
- Grab one of the black elastic bands in the original box
- Wrap it around the FitBark while capturing the collar
- Pull the FitBark away from the collar about an inch (2.5 cm) until you hear two “clicks”, which will secure the unit to the collar
4. Does Fitbark control barking?
Not really. FitBark is an activity and sleep monitor.
On a side note, plenty of exercise helps eliminate hyperactive, destructive, unruly and attention seeking behaviors that may or may not include excessive barking.
In addition, if your dog tends to be anxious when left alone, FitBark helps you monitor how his activity and anxiety levels change during the hours after the separation.
5. Can I use Fitbark on a harness ?
FitBark is designed to be fixed on a dog collar. Wearing the FitBark on a harness may reduce its activity and sleep tracking accuracy. If you use a harness to take your dog out for walks, we recommend that you keep the FitBark on a light, soft collar that your dog can wear 24/7 and wear the harness on top of that.
6. Does Fitbark have a GPS ?
No, or at least not yet. At FitBark, rather than answer the question “where is my dog?” we focus on health, activity, sleep and behavior. Our goal is to better understand our dogs. Our mission is to inspire a healthy lifestyle for dogs and humans. That’s why we designed an experience that is dynamic and has use throughout the day.
Note: while we continue to look at ways to introduce new sensors in the future, for now we’re extremely proud of FitBark’s tiny product size (8 grams), form factor and battery life (up to 14 days). Introducing a GPS sensor at this time would likely make our product 5-7 times as bulky.
7. Is Fitbark waterproof?
Yes, but only if you keep the rubber cap at the back of the unit firmly closed.
FitBark’s waterproof specification is IPX7 (can be submerged up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes).
8. How long does Fitbark last for?
FitBark’s battery generally lasts anywhere between 10-14 days, depending on how frequently you sync.
If your dog is constantly within the range of a FitBark Wi-Fi Base Station, battery life might be slightly reduced.
9. Can a cat wear Fitbark? What about other animals?
Sure, but you won’t find much in terms of comparative norms and baselines. Please choose an animal within the “not a dog” list when you setup your FitBark on a cat, bunny, pig, sheep, chicken, penguin, falcon, zebra or any other animal or human.
10. What is Fitbark's temperature operating range?
Based on our previous experience with similar components and materials, our current assessment is the following:
- Operating temperature: -4°F to 122°F (-20°C to 50°C)
- Storage temperature: -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C)
11. Is Fitbark suitable for small size dogs?
Yes. FitBark is so tiny that it won’t bother dogs of any size, including 3 lbs Chihuahuas and 200 lb Leonbergers. Please make sure to use a collar not wider than 1.18 inches (30 mm).
12. What collars are compatible with Fitbark?
FitBark is compatible with collars not wider than 1.18 inches (30 mm).
You’ll get the most out of the experience if you leave a soft collar on your dog 24/7.
13. Is it dangerous for my dog to have an electronice device so close to him?
FitBark emits less than 1/10,000th the amount of radiation from a cell phone, and a small fraction of what we humans get from using a Bluetooth headset. Our devices are FCC certified and well within the specifications followed by any other product considered to be safe.
14. Is the Fitbark app free?
16. How often do I need to sync my Fitbark to avoid losing data?
A daily sync is recommended but not required. FitBark records minute-by-minute data for a minimum of 14 days (guaranteed) and a maximum of 28 days.
