    Leather, and it holds up very well. As long as we have dogs, we will always have a leather couch.<br />
    <br />
    Leather is bully approved.<br />

    Oh my goodness! !!! How adorable! !! I will take the couch and all the babies! !
    Thank you everyone, Leather it is! @cali baker - I have made sure husband understands we will never have"nice" things with all or critters and kiddos. Invest in duct tape haha.

    We have leather and it wipes clean and we nourish it every so often but not nearly enough Ftse has scratched it a bit where he jumps up but I keep a throw on it so he sits on the other one with no throw on it of course.

    We have micro fiber and it is awful! The smells stay in the couch and the droll is impossible to clean! We have a new living room set on the way and I cannot wait to junk this thing!!

    I'm also in the market for couches and the sets I'm looking at are either 100% polyester or a polyester/cotton blend- how will these hold up to the bullies? Will the hair stay embedded? Will drool clean easily? Any advice is appreciated. As far as leather goes the sofas I'm looking at would cost about $6- $7k to be to me made in leather and I can't justify that with the Bulldogs running the probability of scratching it up.

    Personally, I am not a huge fan of leather furniture. I don't like the way it feels...that being said, micro-fiber stains like there is NO tomorrow. We got our new sofa before we got Tia, but my other dogs would lick and lick the micro-fiber, and leave spit stains. I have talked to others who had this same problem. When we got our new sofa set, we settled on regular, classic fabric, and it has made a workd of difference!

    @TheLost - Hahahahaha! ! Great answer! @Scueva - it is very hard to accept paying that much money when you know they are going to get messed up within moments! I think that is the biggest thing holding us back. Good luck!

    We have micro-fiber. Horrible! Every lick shows this nasty wet spot stain. Hair sticks in it. It's just awful. Just my very strong opinion! Lol

    Our "couch" is actualy a wooden bench that my husband built. I have been sewing cushions from my fabric stash and i just drag them in as needed.

    I'm glad I read this. I was a click away from buying a new microfiber couch.

    Lol; i have a micro-fiber sofa loveseat that Amber is quit fond of.......now that doesn't mean anyone else is fond of it. She loves her loveseat and we are keeping it just for her. We are leaning more towards the outside furniture with the metal frame and nice cushions. That way we can replace the cushions or have extras for company (that comment cracked me up, we don't have company unless you count my son and grandchildren). The metal frame furniture can not be chewed on nearly as fast as wood, microfiber, or leather; all three are favorite flavors of our bullies. We also have your dependable folding chairs. Now, seriously.....we don't buy any up scale furniture anymore since we have the bullies. We go to the bargain section of the store and find a good sofa that will last for a little while for a few hundred dollars and go from there. The bullies get just as tired at looking at the same old stuff as we do so when they decide they have had it long enough and decide it needs a few more holes (cushions get de-stuffed regularly) its about time to head back to the store for another cheap but serviceable sofa. If the bullies have taught me anything it is that furniture is overrated. Good luck!!
