Protecting upholstery from doggies

Does anyone know of a slipcover that would fit the sofa seating in a 25FB Flying Cloud? We just purchased the new trailer, complete with the leather upholstery. We have three rescue mutts who love to look out the window. We're worried about punctures and scratches. Currently we have them covered with blankets, but woul like something a bit more "tailored".

We made terry cloth slip covers for ours. We just sewed in elastic and they stretch over the cushions.

If you have the ultra leather, relax. My two basset hounds have been on and off of it for 2 1/2 years with nary an issue. Oh, that includes mud, drool, you name it. If you keep their nails clipped I can't imagine that you could have an issue. Other dog owners?

Went to JoAnn's fabric and got some polyester stretchy fabric. No sewing..it just tucks in around all the cushions.

grandma's plastic seat covers

You can purchase some high quality (will withstand the dogs nails) shower curtains from Kohls and tape them to fit. Its kind of like wrapping a bday present. Clear tape for the edges and Blue tape on the underside of the pillow works great.

I've had mine on for two years without any tears or punctures. Plus it allows you to see the natural beauty of the original fabric/pattern and protects them from dirt and liquid spills. Just wipe away the mess.

Hope this helps.

Our issue is a cat that slips through the curtains to see outside! Curtains are shot! I know, train the owners, right?

If you have ultra-leather, it holds up to dogs very well, shouldn't have any problems.

We travel with three dogs. We have the ultra leather. Our largest dog is a border collie who loves to look out the front window. We purchased a couple of bathroom rugs with the no skid backing. We place those on the seats mainly to protect from their dirty feet. The ultra leather is fairly durable. The rugs remove easily and easily pop in the wash.
Keep their nails clipped and you should be fine.

On my sofa at home I use plastic carpet runners turned upside-down. My Lab doesn't care for the little plastic knobs sticking up, neither does the cat.

We use mover's pads or big cheap washable acrylic blankets. Our smallish dogs love them. If they have a couch to lay about on they are very happy.

We have two labs and the same type of trailer....we do not want them on our leather sofas, so we just fill the sofas with all the pillows at night before we go to bed, and they have learned not to get up there.

Get bigger dogs who don't need to be on the furniture to see out.

I hate to be in the minority, but, um, er, we don't let our dog up on the bed or upholstery. Having two kids with asthma, and friends with serious pet allergies, we try to restrict the doggie dander & dog hair to the floor--where she has a comfortable mat. Our dog is an old girl now, but when she was young and tempted to make herself more comfy when we were out, we simply put stuff on top of the bed and dinette seats to discourage her. This worked pretty well.

We cover furniture with acrylic washable"dig blankets" that have sturdy fabric on one side and fuzz on the other. They're washable, and our little dogs love to make nests in them in cold weather. Furniture, in their opinion needs to be shared by the pack. They do tend to stay off the bed at home and in the AS because that's where the pack alphas sleep. I.e mom and dad. Daughters bed seems to be fair game. The pack established pecking order is interesting...

Yeah, we probably love our doggies a little too much, but all they want is a soft place to sleep in exchange for a lot of love and regular feeding 😊
