Dogs are superbly skilled in the art of snoozing and their beds are in almost continuous use both day and night. In fact, adult dogs need 12–14 hours of sleep per day.
So when buying a new dog bed, you want to be certain your pampered pooch will have a comfy place to sleep, or they’ll be back on the sofa in no time!
We’ve been searching for the perfect dog bed for a while. A bed that would not only be comfortable, but durable, whilst looking stylish in our home. Maybe we were searching for a dog bed that didn't exist?
When Omlet approached us to review their brand new dog bed we leapt at the chance.
As a long-time admirer of their gorgeous range of premium dog crate furniture, we were extremely excited about testing and reviewing the latest addition to their award-winning range.
Once Freddie has his own comfy place, maybe he will stay off our furniture!

Omlet Dog Bed Review
1. Omlet Dog Bed Review : Basics
Their intuitive website reminded me of a swanky car-configuration site. This is not simply ordering an off-the-shelf product, but customising every detail of your dog bed to suit your dog and your home decor.
From mattress size to topper style and legs, every bed part can be tailored to your requirements.
Decisions, decisions! For our review we chose a medium size mattress with two different toppers to provide a direct comparison and legs.
Basically if you have a screwdriver, you’re all set. It’s far removed from my usual Ikea experience when I often resort to a glass of wine, some choice words and need to be rescued.
The Omlet dog bed is delivered to your door ready to unwrap and set up. The base and the toppers are delivered ‘roll compressed’ and quickly re-inflate once unwrapped.
In fact, Freddie didn’t wait until I’d finished assembling the bed before he started lounging.
The bed arrives in four parts – a mattress base, topper, baseboard and legs.
The attention to detail when designing and manufacturing each individual component part, means that everything fits perfectly and slots into place first time.
The mattress base has been designed to be incredibly lightweight using a superior memory foam for comfort.
Better still, to help deal with any potential canine accidents, the mattress itself is encased in a waterproof layer.
The fabric cover can be removed and machine washed to keep it looking and smelling fresh. So all round, big ticks for comfort and cleanliness.
We were pleasantly surprised at just how lightweight the memory foam base was, so it’s easy to move around your home until you find that perfect position.
Omlet offer three sizes of dog bed accompanied by a handy sizing guide online.
If you opt to raise your bed with legs, Omlet include a sturdy base board which slides into the base unit providing additional support.
2. Omlet Dog Bed Review : Design
The bed topper selection is where the super-smart design really shines through. Dogs can sleep in all sorts of positions from curling up into a ball to stretching out on their back.
Omlet offer a selection of 5 gorgeous toppers in a range of colours so that one bed can be adapted to satisfy all dog sleep styles -
⭐️ Bolster topper
⭐️ Quilted topper
⭐️ Sheepskin topper
⭐️ Microfibre topper
⭐️ Bean bag topper

Our first selection, bean bag topper, was a new concept to us. We chose the bright yellow but it's also available in grey if you are looking for a more subtle topper.
We soon realised that it's perfect for those pooches who are only comfortable after an elaborate routine of digging, scuffling and turning around to get their bed just right.
With no side walls this topper style is suited to dogs who prefer to chill stretched out and love plenty of room to sleep.
The second topper, the bolster, offers a more traditional bed style. It surrounds the sleep space on three sides turning the bed into a couch for your spoilt pup.
Dogs can lean and rest their head on the raised edges whilst the opening allows for their feet and legs to hang out. For older dogs this 'three-sided' design makes it easier to get in and out than the ‘bowl-shaped’ beds available on the market.
This is definitely Freddie’s preferred topper as he enjoys the sense of security from the higher bolster walls making him feel safe.
The bolsters were soft and comfortable but held their loft under the weight of his head and didn’t flatten.
Whichever topper you choose, you can rest easy knowing that they can be easily unzipped and thrown in the washing machine.
They’re great for dealing with the inevitable dog hair or mucky paws.
Each topper simply attaches to the base unit using a series of four expertly concealed zips.
The legs not only add an air of luxury but from a functional viewpoint they raise the bed off the ground ensuring your dog can relax free from any draughts.
The legs are optional so if you’re buying for a small puppy or miniature dachshund you could select the bed without legs.
It's worth noting that if your dog suffers from any joint ailments or they’re getting older it can be difficult for them to change positions from standing to sitting to lying down.
A raised bed can make it so much easier for them.
For a classic look, we chose the metal hairpin style legs.
You can customise your bed with a range of leg styles to suit any home decor -
⭐️ Round Wood Feet
⭐️ Square Wood Feet
⭐️ Brass Cap Wood Feet
⭐️ Metal Hairpin Feet
⭐️ Metal Rail Feet

We loved the dog bed, particularly the style as it's designed to look modern, sleek and understated.
From the premium memory foam mattress to the concealed zip mechanism, the whole bed is beautifully constructed using high-quality materials and attention to detail.
The only flaw in an otherwise perfect bed, and it is a very small issue was the the plastic pads supplied with the metal hairpin legs. They did tend to fall off when we moved the bed.
Concerned that due to their size Freddie may chew or worse swallow them, we solved the problem by glueing the pads firmly in place.
As all dogs enjoy a bit of dirt and muck, we loved that the Topology bed was easy to keep clean and smelling fresh.
The waterproof layer surrounding the mattress and the machine washable removable covers help to ensure that this bed continues to look new.
The interchangeable toppers is a simply brilliant idea, so regardless of how your dog likes to sleep, you can customise the bed to suit them.
Designed with the discerning dog in mind, if you’re looking for a stylish and comfortable bed which will suit your four-legged friend and look amazing in your home, you will be hard pushed to beat the Topology bed.
The only real downside is that your dog will be so relaxed you’ll have trouble getting them up for a walk. Let's be honest, I was half-tempted to rest my own head on it!
Long Term Test Update
After using the Topology dog bed for a couple of years, we're suitably impressed by how it's held up to daily wear and tear.
As you can see, aside from a few marks made by dirty paws and a couple of tiny material plucks caused by nails in need of trimming, it still looks pretty good.
In fact, I think looking back at the original photos, the material on the bed base was still quite creased and arguably it looks better now.
So in terms of durability, we can definitely give the Topology dog bed the thumbs up.
