I am buying new furniture looking at leather i have never had it before and i am wondering how it will hold up to the dogs. Mine dont dig or chew but they lay on it a lot. Fabric has not held up very well. thanks cindy
I've got leather also, and love it. One thing to look for is anodized leather, which means the dye goes all the way through instead of just the surface. The scratches won't show as much (if you even get many scratches).
Leather couches are the best! It is worth it to spend a little more for a quality leather. The cheap stuff will show more scratches and is more likely to tear. Also, there are a bunch of texture types. The sueded stuff and the really smooth shiny stuff will show scratches more. The couch I has that held up the best had a slightly pre-worn look to it. I don't know the name in leather terms sorry. But, this stuff was great as scuffs and small scratches blended in and were not noticable at all. I would also ante up for the treatment that makes cleaning the leather easier too.
