This Review will answer all these questions, but first what is a Pitpat?
The Pitpat is available for £39 on Amazon and monitors your dogs movements. It can tell you how much walking, running, playing, pottering, and resting that your dog does daily, even during the night.

It is especially good for dogs who need to lose or gain weight by tracking your dog’s progress and giving you a massive push in the right direction.
The device fits onto your dog’s collar, it is fully waterproof, small, and lightweight. It fits onto all collars and harness types, so no need to worry about whether it will fit. It is also comfortable for your dog, they likely won’t even notice that it is there. The best part is that it is extremely tough and can withstand all dog behaviours. The battery is non-rechargeable, only because the battery life is one year, then all you need to do is purchase a new battery.
