Leather is a great choice if you have pets. It is a very durable, especially if you get a protected, top-grain leather. The protection helps against pet’s claw and the top grain leather is usually thicker so also harder to penetrate. Hair and fur can be vacuumed off easily and most dirt will wipe off with a cloth. Once wiped off, odours don’t usually get trapped in the leather. If you do get a scratch on leather it adds to the character of the piece so you can feel comfortable with your pet by your side.
