    Got-Junk? service took my first couch away last year. All I have is one lazy boy rocking chair and the armchair for the dogs. Good to know that leather is the way to go when you have dogs. I always thought leather was something you had to baby and condition but I guess all those toenail scratches give it character.

    Leather for the win however if you have cats too be prepared to have it scratched and pitted!

    Interesting subject!!! We too are guilty of letting the dogs on the couches and really wish we hadn't started it now!! We have cloth covered couches that luckily have zip-off covers that I can wash. However, we brought them over from England with us and they are now looking a bit shabby and old. So far I have yet to find a fabric covered couch with removeable covers over here in Ohio, but also haven't looked TOO closely.

    I'm suprised that everybody has voted a huge YES for leather .... I suppose I always thought that it would get ripped and scratched from all those doggy claws!!

    Unfortunately, my husband hates leather. He says he "sticks" to it ..... :hahaha:

    We have microfiber. After all the slobber and mess, I use folex carpet cleaner on it, and it looks like new again. I purchase it at Sam's, but I'm sure it can be found in other stores!

    I have pillows now and will not make that mistake again. What a pain. Bulldogs or teenagers really can't learn the concept of leaving the pillows on the couch.
    Mixed on the microfiber - I was hoping for an easy answer there. I do have a big black leather chair and it is very easy to clean and I keep a blanket on it but the blanket is a pain and hides the great chair.
    Off-white leather? Sounds interesting. Besides scratches, do you think nails could puncture it?

    I have had leather for the past 15 years or so. I will not have anything else and found it stands up to everything well (except when cats use it as a scratching post!) No punctures from dogs nails and I love that I don't have a problem with hairs.

    Leather here too. Luckily my cousin owned an Ethan Allen store and we got a rocking deal on 2 chairs and a couch...but he's since retired and sold the store so when replacement time comes...UGH!
    Don't go cheap cheap. You'll end up with thin fragile leather that will easily tear/crack and be prone to lose it's finish.

    Leather, 100% leather. My husband actually bought Josephine a couch. A LEATHER 8 foot long couch.... for Josie, we call it Josie's couch. She's too short to get on any of the furniture without help so unless we want her up she stays on the floor with her half a dozen plush doggy beds. Leather is easy to clean and you can condition it to keep it supple, it tends to just get character as it ages. I've only had leather furniture for 15 years, learned with Pugs that she'd like crazy that fabric of any kind just doesn't work.

    I will admit it is nice to lay down on the sofa with a Pug at my feet and one behind my knees. Josie prefers to snooze along Daddy's thigh in Daddy's chair. The trainer has worked wonders on making this happen. Josie is learning to hop up on her back legs and place her front paws on his inner thighs so he can grip her harness and ribs to pull her up. Then with the bullibone she settles down next to him. To get down he faces her head down front paws dangling between his thighs (looks weird but works) and holds her harness as he lowers her to the ground. We don't let her jump up or down from the chair to protect her joints.

    I still can't believe he bought her her own sofa... maybe when she's older she will appreciate it and sleep on it.
