  • BarkPoints (also called activity counts) is our primary metric. The more your dog moves, the more points.
  • Time Breakdown is our secondary metric. It tells you how long your dogs spends playing, being active or resting.
  • Sleep Score describes quality of nocturnal rest. Dogs who are sick, anxious or under-exerted tend to get a lower score.
  • Activity Index represents a day’s BarkPoints vs. recent avg.
  • Calorie Expenditure can be estimated on FitBark Explore based on weight and BarkPoints. Why feed your dog the same amount of food every day?

Shadows hobby is digging, and my little mud magnet keeps me entertained [washing and brushing] for hours. Somehow Louise manages to transform this hairy worm into a sweet smelling devilishly handsome critter. At Louise’s suggestion I have invested in a grooming table [Amazon £62] and some proper grooming tools so I now have two free hands and I stand a fighting chance with my lovable rogue.
