Perfect Sofas for Your Pet


It’s official - pets are part of the family!  We all start off by saying that the new puppy won’t be allowed on the sofa, or that the kitten definitely won’t be using dad’s favourite chair as a scratching post, but try as we might, as soon as we collect the new bundle of joy all sense goes out of the window!

Don’t worry though, you aren’t the first and you won’t be the last, and here at SofaSofa we understand exactly what you’re going through. With this in mind we’ve narrowed down our collection to show you sofas that are as pet-friendly as possible, just to give you a helping hand.


Get a Sofa Just For Your Pet!

We know it’s hard to keep your pet from snuggling up on the sofa with you, but to avoid damaging your sofa, your pet cannot keep finding comfort on all the furniture.  Instead, why not choose a specific piece that will always be known as ‘the dog’s chair’? This way it’s easier to train your pet, as they’ll know the boundaries from early on. Plus, your guests won’t get covered in hairs, as they’ll know which chair to avoid!


Loose Cover Sofas

Otherwise, if stroking your smooth pet is how you love to relax on your sofa, perhaps the most obvious option is to go for one of our loose cover models.  Each one of these comes with a full set of removable, washable covers which can be cleaned as and when needed. Not only can you wash them at your leisure (without having to lug them back and forth a launderette), but you can always buy a spare set in case of unplanned visitors, so they can be whipped off and replaced for an instant freshen up.



One of our long-standing models, the Charlotte is a timeless classic which appeals to both young and old alike.  It’s duck feather and hollow-fibre seat cushions offer a soft and luxurious sit, and the scatter cushions allow you to get yourself comfortable (and we’re sure your four-legged friend will take advantage of this too).



Natural 4-Seater Loose Cover Sofa

Charlotte Four-Seater Sofa in Kingston Natural

It is available in two fabrics, and although both are machine washable at 30 degrees, the patterned Kingston fabric may be best at disguising muddy paw prints.

To ensure you have enough room for you and your furry family member you may want to opt for a four-seater sofa.  It’s delivered in two separate sections, so it shouldn’t be an issue for our hands-on delivery drivers.


Excellent - "Bought a pair of three seaters 12/13 years ago (with the extra scatter cushions). I have two sets of covers I alternate. Cream and also the Miami Sand. I have two large dogs, and when we first bought them a small child with a penchant for sticky hands! The sofas still look great, are oh so comfortable, and I'm still getting asked where I bought them!" - Customer review by Dakota on 08/08/2015


Love Leather

If leather is more your style then we have something for you too. Softgrain is the most family-friendly leather we have, and let’s face it, pets are our babies!  It’s a pigment-dyed leather which is sanded to remove most natural markings, and embossed to create a uniform grain. The leather is then coated with a clear sealant to enhance stain resistance. It’s important to remember though that no leather is completely pet-resistant, so it’s still important to be careful – maybe a throw would be appreciated.

If you do have an accident and your sofa gets damaged by your pet, usually scratched by overexcited claws, SofaSofa’s Leather Protection that we offer as an additional purchase covers you against one claim of pet damage – so you can forgive them (well once anyway!).



Brown Leather Sofa

Hardy Three-Seater in Softgrain Tabac


Our Hardy range is fully upholstered in softgrain leather with a fully screwed and glued non-tropical hardwood frame.  Made with heavy duty serpentine springs and moulded foam cushions (perfect for the more portly pooch), the hardwood feet with brass castors at the front complete the look.


Fixed Cover Sofas

If a fixed cover is more your style then our Flanders fabric would probably be best.  Available on our Agatha, Austen and Florence models, all of which are designs that are popular,  Flanders fabric is a brushed cotton linen blend with a tight, closed weave, so there is less chance of claws getting in between the fibres!

Fixed cover sofas need professional cleaning, so it’s important to bear this in mind, as it could be an extra cost in the future.



Cream Sofa

Florence Three-Seater Sofa in Flanders Stone


This range comes with a choice of 10 Flanders colours, two-seat fillings and two-feet options, so you really can make the sofa your own.


Get the Right Sofa

‘A pet isn’t just for Christmas’ is a mantra we all remember - because any day is the perfect time to get an adorable pet. But it is important that the sofa you choose is suitable for your household, as we want our customers to get their money’s worth and enjoy their pets without feeling anxious.
