About this project
Actijoy™ fosters a healthy lifestyle not only for dogs but also the whole family. Are you ready for change? Then experience all the benefits of the Actijoy™ Health & Activity Tracker, Actijoy™ Food & Water WiFi Bowl and Actijoy™ iOS & Android Mobile App.
It is an essential tool for every dog lover! Unlike similar devices, Actijoy™ monitors all important aspects and offers a comprehensive overlook of your pet's health. The Actijoy™ Health & Activity Tracker focuses on physical activity, while the Food & Water WiFi Bowl tracks food and water intake. The Actijoy™ Mobile App combines and evaluates all the information, giving you the perfect window into your buddy's life.
Selfies are changing the world. Therefore we've implemented the Barkfie, a unique selfie tool in Actijoy™ iOS & Android Mobile App. Barkfie allows owners to make an awesome selfie with their dog. Getting an amazing picture with your dog was never so easy! Just play one of the unusual sounds and get your buddy's attention. So say "cheese" and the results will amaze you!
We have been working on this project more than two years. We developed several prototypes, learning more and more each time how to better create the project we dreamed of. We have our final prototype ready and have tested it with a wide community of dogs. With your help, we can start production right away.

We need your help to move our dream to the next level - mass production and certification process.
We have been working very hard during the last months to get everything ready before launching the campaign on Kickstarter.
What have we achieved so far?
- We developed functional prototypes of the Actijoy™ Health & Activity Tracker, and Actijoy™ Food & Water WiFi Bowl
- Prototypes were carefully tested by volunteers among dog owners, Vets and dog trainers
- We are developing the Actijoy™ iOS & Android Mobile App. First part (Health book and Barkfie) will be available on the App Store and Google Play on January 5, 2017
- Packaging design was developed with respect to nature and sustainable living
- We have shipping plan and pre-negotiated shipping rates to all the main countries
- And finally we prepared and launched our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to share our great idea with you
Our mission is to make the healthy lifestyle more fun. We do not focus only on one part, but we developed a sophisticated tool to get a full overview of all your pet's wishes and needs. From the very first moment when we thought about health & activity tracker Actijoy™, we knew, that we do not only want to produce excellent facilities. We knew that what we want is to improve the lives of our four-legged friends. So from the beginning, we did not think of Actijoy™ as an activity tracker, but as an integrated solution that provides your whole family enough information about your pet. And the result of two years work? We are confident that we have created Actijoy™ better and more useful than we had even imagined at the beginning.
Risks and challenges
We have taken enough time to get nearly everything in place before launching this campaign. We wanted to reduce the risk to our backers by delaying the start of this campaign until the core technologies were proven by real testers. Our team has worked together for many months and is highly experienced.
Thanks to previous business projects, we have gained necessary experience in manufacturing and developed strong partnerships with manufacturers around the world. We are working closely with them to make sure production goes without any delay. We have projected the timeline for production and chosen the right logistic partners to send Actijoy™ worldwide in time. We are aware of any delays we can face during the production process. In the same time, we want to establish a trusted brand among customers and do not want to keep them waiting. Therefore we already have a 4-6 weeks reserve for possible troubles in our production timeline.
Despite the fact that we have carefully thought any risks, there are always some that are out of our control, including:
Certification delay: the products must be tested and approved by numerous independent agencies, and it takes time.
Unexpected production delays: in manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. We have chosen those who are real professionals. In any case, we will do our best to deliver rewards on expected delivery dates!
We pledge to keep all of our backers updated along the way, and we are available for questions of any kind at firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
