AniFit: the world’s first personalized canine weight and fitness monitor

Like humans, diet and exercise play a crucial role in managing stress and maintaining good health in dogs. Through AniFit's unique pre-test, instead of relying on generalized information, all recommendations are based on YOUR dog's data, gathered by monitoring daily life patterns.

Ensure your dog is leading a healthy and happy lifestyle with AniFit!

Given the unique nature of each dog and the wide variety of breeds, developing a reliable and comprehensive database on dog's health poses substantial challenges. Such a database would be an incredible resource for veterinarians and dog owners all around the world However, currently no such database exists. Through AniFit's unique health monitoring system we hope to eventually compile the data we acquire to be an objective and thorough guide on dog health.


With AniFit, not only will you help YOUR dog stay healthy, you will also help ALL dogs live a fulfilled life


AniFit first performs a pre-test which monitors your dog’s normal daily patterns for a 7 days.The purpose of this pre-test is to gather data about your dog's living routines. Unlike other wearables, AniFit does not rely on inexact generalized information. 

AniFit analyzes YOUR dog's health needs.

AniFit was developed with the idea that truly informed information can only be obtained after monitoring each individual dog. This is what makes AniFit unique as it uses these pre-test measurements as a starting point to make customized suggestions.

This pre-test is simple and doesn't require any visit to the veterinarian. After a week, the pre-test data will be analyzed through an algorithm and set in motion a plan to work towards a healthy life for your dog. 

Instructions for the pre-test are below:

The Fitness Tracker offers three different ways to view your dog’s progress towards a healthy lifestyle. Track progress daily, weekly and monthly to make sure you dog maintains a regular exercise routine.

The Weight Tracker also has three different modes that help your dog avoid the dangers of obesity. Keep a visible record of your dog’s progress in reaching an ideal weight, which is suggested by AniFit.

Unhealthy habits can have an extremely negative impact on your dog’s quality of life and life span. Obesity, the natural cause of overfeeding, can lead to medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and even life threatening conditions such as Gastic dilatation volvulus (GDV). Underfeeding also comes with risks such as malnutrition, digestive problems and personality disorders such as food aggression. 

Dogs are innately active creatures and lack of exercise is well documented to provide a host of both physical and mental problems. Heart conditions, skin rash, risk of cancer and behavioral issues caused by pent-up energy are only the beginning of the list. However, overly strenuous exercise routines can also cause harm especially for older dogs. Over stressed joints can lead to injuries and chronic damage that will hamper your dogs quality of life.

Risks and challenges

We at AniFit have developed AniFit over the course of years, doing our best to ensure that there are no glitches. We understand the responsibility that accompanies providing health advice, and take it very seriously. While AniFit does risk giving inaccurate data when the device is used on multiple dogs or is paired with multiple smartphones. However, when one AniFit is paired with one Dog and one smartphone, we have done extensive testing to ensure it functions precisely. We hope that you will believe in AniFit and help us gather enough funds to enter mass-production. We thank you for any feedback or support!
