I have a human knee one, and a border collie sized mesh jacket.

As I have arthritis in my knee (old ACL injury), I got it to wear in the winter at night. I don't wear it in the summer yet, but find that in the winter it really helps. I also wear air activated heated knee wraps when it is very cold. The heat seems to help

I use the jacket on the dogs if they are sore. I thought it made a difference with Emma. Speck wears it sometimes,I should be better about it.

They don't wear it unless there is an injury or need.

jackets worn overnight? at a trial between runs?
theory is they increase circulation? keep muscles warm?

i'm wondering about illopsoas, not that Stel has injured hers this year-knock wood, but the coat or blanket doesn't seem to hug the body at that location... more of a shoulder back targeting?
I'm asking really now because, I just notice sometimes she not lame and she's moving fine when she moves, but when she gets up from a floor nap she seems stiff, like this week maybe she did something to make herself sore kinda all over playing at off leash---I know the park, its one of the risks, but its so good for her spirits

Yes to wear the coat over night. And between runs, depending on if they're are warm or not.

I like mine, and would buy it again. I think it helps

On barjor's recommendation I got one a year ago when Matilda was injured . I should get it out again now.

Highly recommended! Faith has one, the whippets each have one, and my BC puppy will get one when he starts actually doing stuff.
