@TobyQPringle on instagram. We were blessed to be chosen by a stray old man dog at the beginning of the pandemic, he immediately fit in to our home and we named him Toby. BUT if a gate is left ajar, or when we're out in the country- he follows his nose wherever it takes him- which is usually an adventure for him and mild to moderate panic for us. We decided that we need to be able to find him if he happens to wander again. We researched a few pet GPS options and the FitBark seemed to be the best fit for our needs. It attaches securely to the collar with small zip ties (we have a PVC collar so it can be cleaned easily- thus we don't have to remove the FitBark) but it comes with a few sets of zip ties for removal of the device if necessary.Pros: (There are many) **When in range of "home" connected to wifi the battery has a very long life- I haven't tracked it exactly but I would say at least 2 weeks.**When not "home" FitBark tracks your pup via gps pinpoints on a map so you can see the exact route taken by them, it is pretty accurate within about 5 feet.**Customer service is AMAZING!!! We were setting up for the first time while not at home and away from wifi and had a few (operator error) issues. Customer service assisted us immediately (on a weekend) and answered all of our questions. Customer service CAN NOT be understated as an important aspect of any electronic product.**Water resistant.**Stays securely attached to collar.**Tracks Toby's health index & quality of sleep.**Tracks calories burned and miles "moved" daily.**You can follow other FitBark dogs (sharing code needed)Cons: (There are only two)**When "finding" your pup there is no audible sound to help locate them. Understandably- most dogs would be vocal when seeing their owner whether lost or just on a fun adventure... but let's be honest- sometimes pets like to climb under things (houses, barns etc) especially small terrier/burrowing dogs on the scent of something and it could be helpful to have a small audible "ping" noise to zero in on a location.**When away from wifi the battery life is markedly shorter. We went to our camp on a full charge and the battery was almost dead after 72 hours. Completely understandable since it's constantly tracking positions- just more of a heads up to have the charger with you when you'll be away from wifi for extended periods of time. I had to charge overnight- as we were away for 5 days.Overall WOULD enthusiastically recommend FitBark to anyone who wants the comfort and security of knowing you can find your pup if ever they stray too far from home.
While it’s kind of a big device to put on a cat ours doesn’t mind a bit. We moved and he left for 3 days so we found the FitBark. While intended for dogs it works well for our cat who likes to go outside and now wanders our new neighborhood. In cooler weather he was out daily for a while and the battery didn’t last a full week. But otherwise I’m charging weekly. It’s easy to charge and the app shows me where he is. Really love it thank you! Oh and customer support is top notch!
using it for a week, and so far its been working well. It was very easy to set up, tracks as accurately as whistle Go, small enough for my cat.
Peace of mind! As long as I keep the collar charged ( every 3-5 days) depending on connection ( which is a “where I Live” issue- not a collar issue) I am sure it would last longer if we had more reliable Wi-Fi. It did help locate our dog about a mile away sitting on the local golf course on the first green. I just make sure it’s connecting on a regular basis.
The collar is pretty low maintenance. If you connect it to multiple phones, and multiple wifi networks the battery lasts quite a while. We've had this collar for just over a month, and I've only charged it once. Well, twice if you count the time I charged it after taking it out of the box. The app is pretty good. The only thing that bothers me about it is sometimes it's hard to bring up the map. It's not as simple as just swiping up and bringing up the map. All of the other functions work well. The activity tracker and sleep tracker provide interesting and useful information. Location accuracy is good. If your dog got lost and he/she was wearing this, you would be able to get to their general location find them relatively quickly.
