I think Bill has the right idea, but there are a whole host of products out there for that very thing. My wife gets catalogs from at least three different places that carry this type of product. Wouldn't you know that I can't remember the name of a single one right now?

Anyway, do a search or two on google and you'll find 'em.

edit: I just remembered...Dr. Fosters is the name of one company...I think.

Sweet! Thanks for all the advice guys.

Now that I see Travis' comments, it makes me think that I shouldn't be too concerned.

Just clean and then condition them more often than you normally would with any animal in the car and you shouldn't have any problem. If you keep the leather soft, it stretches and will accommodate a heavy paw, and then flex back, otherwise it could crack, scratch easier, etc.

or just get some good quality seat covers if you don't mind the look, its always nice to take them off after a few years of use and see how new your seats still look, dog and all. Plus then you can throw them in the washer if something spills, maybe mud on the dogs paws, ketchup goes a flyin, etc. Love seat covers.

Seat covers attract dog hair and are more difficult to remove for cleaning. This pad just tucks in. 5 seconds in and out, and doesn't move.

I don't want a permanent cover. That defeats the purpose of leather.

Keep his nails trimmed.

Spray the back seat with a Rhino Lining.

Get a truck. Dogs love trucks.

Yep, I keep her nails trimmed AND we have a truck.

Driving the truck or the Honda isn't always feasible.

How do you plan to protect the leather door panels once you get the seats taken care of? Might want to consider that when making a purchase for protecting the seats.
