As an officer, trainer or volunteer, you know how important it is to keep your dogs in top physical shape so they can help detect drugs, apprehend criminals, search & rescue, or assist certain categories of people that include disabled, hospitalized, veterans and many more.
FitBark helps you
- Quantify work output and efficiency
- Assess amount and quality of sleep
- Identify dogs with increasing or declining performance
As a boarding provider, you strive to build a stellar reputation with your clients. Some of your core activities include taking doggies for long walks, and sending periodic updates to their parents. Chances are that you are already using some kind of messaging app to send texts and pictures to your clients, and that’s great. Sending objective reports of a dog’s play time, however, is hard or cumbersome. Some of the most adventurous hosts re-purpose human GPS trackers, or otherwise use their smartphone’s GPS location to send out reports.

As the owner of a doggie fitness & rehabilitation center or a weight management clinic, you know how hard it is to quantify physical activity in your gym or clinic, as well as remotely monitor compliance with your prescription or recommendation.
A large number of studies around new and existing nutritional blends do not include accelerometer-based measurements. Rather, they are historically based on either subjective (rather than objective) activity metrics, or otherwise on lab-based activity measurements (rather than in free-living conditions). For example, food design & testing might include a survey where an observer is asked “from a scale of 1 to 5, how did this pet’s activity change 7, or 28 days after switching to a new food”? The reason why we do things this way is that managing accelerometer-based studies is extremely complex and expensive.
It’s hard to believe that in 2016 there is still little to no actuarial information on dog activity, sleep and wellness available to pet insurance companies. At FitBark, we are crowdsourcing the creation of norms and baselines so that every dog owner is able to put things in perspective.
As a retailer, you know that great customer service starts from knowing your customer. If you already have an online presence, FitBark’s health, lifestyle and wellness data sets helps you make smart, relevant product & service recommendations. To this extent, you will need your customer’s authorization to access their FitBark data.
As the manager, operator or volunteer at a shelter, you know how hard it is to ensure that all dogs are getting enough playtime throughout the week. You also strive to find new owners that are a good fit, and chances are that you stalk some of the new parents on the social media to see how they’re doing.
If you manage a sports team that participates in agility, rally obedience, disc dog, flyball, freestyle or any other competitions, you know how important it is to keep your dogs fit and healthy, and how difficult it is to quantify physical activity during training or a competition.
As a trainer, you know how hard it is to monitor compliance with an exercise plan. You also know that many behavioral issues require a solid exercise plan as part of the treatment. After all, a tired dog is often a happy dog.
As a veterinarian, you know how hard it is to receive objective health & behavioral information from the parents of a sick pet. After you make your diagnosis, you also know how challenging it is to remotely monitor the development of a disease as well as post-surgical recovery.
