    Ruffwear Hi and light harness

    This is an excellent harness and perfect for the light trail walking I do with my pup. The colours are also super pretty, the pocket is handy and it's easy to wash and dry. Love it

    Ruffwear harness

    Love this harness, super easy to put on. And love the council tag has a pocket that stops it rattling around.👍👍👍👍🐕

    Ruff it with This Perfect Harness

    Absolutely perfect - easy to put on and doesn’t pull across the throat. Very pleased with it - possibly more pleased than my small dog though!

    Susanne G.

    I'm very happy with the Ruffwear Hi and Light harness in terms of material, lightness, adjustability and design. My Vizsla girl loves it and is always ready to go in it. 😊 I'm a bit in doubt about the front hook. I was expecting one equal to the top hook. It's all good still but I wonder how long it will last.

    I returned it as size was wrong, still waiting to receive the replacement, courier very slow I paid for it several days ago.
