Which fill? Hollow Fibre versus Blended Memory Foam versus Encapsulated Pocket Springs

Which fill? Hollow Fibre versus Blended Memory Foam versus Encapsulated Pocket Springs

Not sure which fill is best suited to your pooch, lets explain the pros and cons for each type of fill.

Hollow Fibre - This fill has superb cushioning and insulation properties, it generates its bounce by trapping air within the man made fibres. This trapped air also gives the hollow fibre its insulation characteristics.

Pros: Lightweight, easy to care for, provides soft to medium support, ideally suited for toy breeds through to small – mid sized breeds, up to 25kg.

Cons: Can flatten overtime and therefore has a limited lifespan. Not suited to larger breeds or dogs that require a firmer bed.

Blended Memory Foam – Our blended memory foam is formulated using memory foam and regular foam. The memory foam provides a sublime level of comfort, while the regular foam allows the memory foam to breath. This keeps the bed cooler than a solid memory foam equivalent, meaning the same mattress can be used all year round.

Pros: Does not flatten over time, provides medium to firm support, ideally suited for medium to the largest of breeds.

Cons: Heavier than hollow fibre, will require shaking from time to time, to re-disperse the foam particles.

Encapsulated Pocket Sprung Mattress – The mattress is constructed using several individual springs encased in cloth sleeves, called pockets. These pocket springs allow independent movement, contouring the mattress to the shape of your dog's body. The cluster of springs is encapsulated in a foam shell, to achieve the utmost level of comfort and support.

Pros: Excellent cushioning properties, independent movement, a great benefit for heavier dogs, does not flatten over time.

Cons: Expensive, smaller breeds will not feel as much benefit from this mattress.
