Dog Exercise / Heath Tracking & GPS Location Monitoring
Anxiety can be debilitating. As humans, we understand the steps we must take to improve our physical and mental health, and it is up to us to take care of our pets in the same way.
By using our phones, tablets, and smartwatches, humans have insight into exactly what we’ve done each day. We can then make active changes to our routines to improve our mental and physical health. Pets, however, can’t just tell us how they are feeling. So, we do our best to monitor for changes in behavior, health, or weight, and use that information to determine how we think our pets are feeling.
For example, when your pets are home alone, you would know if they are anxiously pacing or sleeping soundly. Seeing exactly how often your pet moves around can help confirm your pet’s level of separation anxiety. By using this information, you can improve your pet’s quality of life by adjusting or increasing their pet sitting schedule in order to manage their anxiety.
Monitoring your pet’s everyday activity can also determine if your pet is getting the level of activity needed for their weight and mobility needs. By knowing the distance traveled, calories burned, and sleep quality, you will have a much better idea of your dog’s physical health. You can track an elderly dog’s walk to determine if it was a bit too far that day, or take longer walks if your dog isn’t getting the exercise they need.
Fitbark 2 is a dog health monitor that attaches to their collar and provides the insight necessary to get a broader understanding of your pet’s health. Monitoring your pet 24/7 is a great way to explain changes in behavior, mobility, anxiety, and nutrition. It is waterproof and fits dogs of any size, breed, or weight, and fits most collars, excepting those more than 1.5 inches in width.
We recognize the importance of monitoring your pet’s health and well-being, and Fitbark provides a more scientific approach than visual monitoring alone. By utilizing the same behavior tracking tools that humans have, you can make informed decisions to keep your pets as healthy as possible. Using Fitbark 2, all data collected can be shared with your veterinarian (or friends) via Bluetooth 4.0 and a free app. It can be also be linked to your Fitbit, Apple Health kit, or Google fit devices to review progress together. Fitbark also carries additional products including the Fitbark GPS, which is the smallest and lightest GPS tracker so you always know your dog’s exact location while monitoring their health.
Fitbark 2 is a great way to keep a close eye on your pet’s health and provide the best possible care. With access to more data on your pet’s routine when you aren’t there, we can get a well-rounded assessment of how your pet is doing. While we can’t be with our pets 24/7, we can be there for them 24/7.
