This is our 2nd hi & Light.Harness.

My snoodle, cuddles loves his harness, it is light and fits him well. The fabric is easy care. I’ve brought other brands and they lay left in the cupboard. I can thoroughly recommend this product.

Hi and light dog harness

This harness is perfect for our springer puppy, fits perfectly, doesn’t rub or impede her movement and she enjoys putting it on. Many adventures await this little pocket rocket! 🚀

Perfect harness for a very sensitive boy

My 10 year old whippet has always struggled in harnesses. They rub on his paper thin skin and just tear it open. I've tried different styles, had them professionally fitted, custom made, different materials. He's a large whippet so he fits medium harnesses from Ruffwear.
The Hi & Light Harness is so gentle on my boy. It doesn't cut in or rub on his skin at all. It doesn't choke him if he pulls to sniff something, he doesn't shy away when I put it on him.
Walks are back to being enjoyable for him!

Great colour!

We are very happy with our purchase. It is just as described and our girl Dixie looks fabulous in her harness. She took it for a spin doing parkrun with us this past weekend. Thank you! Please make this colour available in other harnesses.


Many thanks for the guidance in purchasing this harness, it has been amazing for our whippet pup. Will purchase another when she is fully grown.

I own an Australian Kelpie. I purchased the Harness for Scentwork. I am very pleased with the product and would highly recommend to others.

Hi and Light Harness

Really good harness - and thank you to the Canine Spirit staff for help getting the size just right

Worth the little bit extra

I was hesitant about paying this amount of money for a harness, but it is far superior than anything I have tried before. It is very light and my pup is barely aware he is wearing it. My pup had sores and scabs in his armpits with other harnesses which is why I tried this one. The Hi & Light Dog Harness does not but up against his armpits, as others did, so it is light and comfortable for him. He no longer fights us when it's time to put on a harness. Previously, it was a daily struggle. I am very happy I paid the extra money and would highly recommend this harness.

Fits well

The S size fits Josey my Hunterway/Border Collie very well and he likes it! Delivery was swift and the harness was easy to fit. Very happy with my purchase.
