To make good use of space,this piece of furniture is designed to be set up in the corner. Deep buttoned back and arms,perfectly filled with nice scroll walls. Leather dog bed is discreet but noticeable due to its unique shape. It is lined with a waterproof pad.
We’ve had our leather couch and love seat for about eight years, through four children and a total of three large dogs -not all at the same time- and both pieces still look good. For the last five years we’ve also had an upholstered couch and only one dog has ever used it and boy is the wear showing. If I can avoid it, I don’t think I’ll ever buy upholstered furniture again. Leather furniture is amazingly resilient when cared for properly. Is the leather on our eight year old couches pristine? Absolutely not, but the only people who can see the damage that has occurred over time are the people who live here.

Leather Furniture and Dogs: How to Make It Work | Dog Training Nation
If you share your home with dogs, you’ve likely searched for and purchased dog-friendly furniture. Like most dog owners, we purchased leather chairs and sofas because they’re easy to clean and puncture-resistant. After a few months though, our leather furniture looked beat up, and I soon learned leather isn’t indestructible. Vinyl and leather furniture options are certainly dog-friendly, but you have to take good care of them for maximum benefits.Cats, dogs, and other pets can cause major damage to furniture, especially leather sofas. While your best bet is to train your animals to not jump on furniture or claw it, sometimes you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Finding a pet-friendly leather sofa doesn't have to be difficult.Gentle leather cleaners will remove stains, slobber and grime, and the before-and-after difference is amazing. Before using leather cleaners, it’s best to vacuum your furniture to remove any dog hair first. Then, spray leather cleaner on a soft white towel and massage the cleaner onto your leather furniture. Over the years, I’ve found small circular motions work best.And yes, leather does collect hair, tons and tons of hair. The solution? He is banished from most of the house and only allowed in one area. No bedroom access, no living room access where the leather furniture is, he basically has the other living room/dining room combo (which he destroyed our dining room table/chair by chewing on them) where he hangs out all day. Really, if your dog is a chewer the only thing you can do is banish them from those areas or thousands of dollars worth of damage will be done in seconds.
