StarWalk Dog Monitor

It’s hard to know exactly if our pooches are getting the exercise they need, and it can also be a bit of a worry that we might be overworking them once they start getting a little along in age. This is why a device such as the SkyWalk Monitor is an absolute must for any dog owner wanting to ensure that their dog is getting the correct amount of activity in their day. It’s affordable, easy to fit around any collar, and your beloved will not feel as though you are punishing them with a cumbersome neck brace.

The device lights up in increments of 20% to show how much activity your dog has (or has not) made in his or her day, and can be programmed for each dog’s specific needs. Once all of the six lights are lit up, you know that your dog has reached ( or in some cases exceeded) the limit for that day.

The Skywalk monitors all of the following:

  • Pedometer – measuring total amount of steps
  • Calorie counter – measuring the amount of calories burned
  • Amount of time active!
  • The activity type (whether low or high impact)
  • The distance traveled
  • Your dog’s temperature
