PitPat is a dog activity monitor. It enables you to track your dogs’ exercise, weight and fitness via their super user-friendly app with just a click of a button. We’ve been using it daily for several months now and I absolutely love it!
A PitPat device is very lightweight but durable and comfortable for dogs to wear. Each device comes with a velcro strap which means that it can be easily moved from collar to collar. This is super handy for me because Woody has tonnes of collars so it’s great to know we can easily change his collar and move the PitPat with no issues. The PitPat devices are also fully waterproof which I can vouch for. Woody has been in many seas and smelly lakes in it and even wears it to track his hydrotherapy sessions and we’ve had no problem with activity not being tracked.
What I really love about PitPat is their amazing customer service. If I have ever had any issues with the device or app, with just one email I’ve had a really informative reply from their Customer Suppawt and everything has been fixed in just a few hours/days.
Since we found out about Woody’s elbow dysplasia, we’ve always been mindful of how much exercise he is doing and how much is too much for him. With a dog activity monitor, this is great peace of mind for us.
With PitPat, your data only syncs when you press a button. But with other fitness trackers we have had, this isn’t the case, it’s a constant sync which does drain the battery. What’s brilliant is that the device itself stores up to 10 days of data, so it doesn’t matter if you forget to sync for a few days because as soon as you press the paw it fetches the data via Bluetooth straight to the app. The app is super simple to set up and navigate around and also gives you the option to add multiple dogs (one day) and owners.
Here’s an example of a typical day for Woody:

I’ve actually recently joined PitPat Life which is a wellness club for dogs. You pay a monthly fee and you get the PitPat device (if you don’t already have one), as well as this you are able to earn badges and points. These points can then be spent in the PitPat prize store. You also have access to cheeky discounts off some brilliant brands which you wouldn’t get ordinarily. It’s a really great incentive for those that need a little motivation hitting their daily exercise goals by being rewarded with points and then prizes.
We’d give PitPat an 8/10. Bravo PitPat for a brilliant product!
