Default Leather Seats

I need advice on caring for my leather seats. First car i've owned with leather. Also how durable are they? I have a Lab and she weighs over 100 lbs. She doesn't go in car often but in case i need to take her to vet.

The leather seats in the 2003+ Bonneville are not that durable. It'* a soft leather that'* pretty thing. I moved recently and put several smaller rips in my leather from moving things. It doesn't really take much to rip it unfortunately. The leather on the 2000-2002 Bonnevilles was much stiffer and thick so it would not tear as easily.

Go to Petco and get the fake sheepskin seat cover pad with the rubber backing. Bo rides on it daily. The 92-99 leather is tougher, but I still put the dog on his own stuff. The rubber backing keeps it from sliding around, and the piece is big enough to cover the entire back seat.

My last boxer Mick rode in the Zilla for two years before Bo did. My back seat is pristine.

Mick rode on a saddle blanket.
