Leather Is Tough And Durable
First, leather is tougher and more durable than cloth.
If you choose a couch made with high-quality leather, it will be harder for your dog’s claws to tear through the leather than it is for them to tear through the cloth.
However, this only applies to high-quality leather.
If you choose a couch made from low-quality leather or worse, faux leather, it won’t be long before you find scratches on your new couch.
Leather Is Easy To Clean
The second reason why a leather couch is better than a cloth couch is due to maintenance reasons.
Leather is very easy to clean.
You can clean pet hairs, spills, and even dog pee from a leather couch by simply wiping the couch with a cloth.
With a cloth couch, spills and pee will quickly seep into the couch, making it a lot harder to clean. In addition, pet hairs tend to cling on cloth, which means you’ll need to vacuum the couch to get rid of the pet hairs.
If you want a pet-friendly couch but cannot afford leather, you should go for a microfiber couch.
After leather, microfiber is the most durable fabric.
In addition, microfiber is not susceptible to scratches. It is also very easy to clean and comes in multiple colors, which means you’ll easily find a color that matches your taste.
