Should I get my couch reupholstered in synthetic leather?

I have inherited a beautiful mid-century sectional couch, and it needs to be reupholstered. Since we have two dogs, I would prefer leather, but unfortunately it is going to take a whopping $6000 worth of real leather to complete the job (that's just the skins, not the foam or the labour). I am considering a synthetic option: bonded leather or vinyl or PVC of some type. Are there decent synthetic materials available now that will look like leather and stand up to ordinary wear and tear? [more inside]
