Default Pet resistant couch?

Tired of dealing with hair sticking to the cushions and carpet, I decided to purchase laminate flooring and a couch that hair just brushes off of. This means some type of leather, vinyl, or blend. The couch I was planning to buy is a discounted black blend pillow couch that provides great lumbar support. Unfortunately, a couple of people have advised me against it saying the dog's claws will destroy it. Looks like I'm going to have to teach my dogs to stay off the couch, but it won't be easy since they're used to getting up there and the soon to be hard floor will make them want to lay on furniture even more. Can scratches be covered with shoe polish or does that come off on clothing even when dry? Is there a type of slick surface couch dog claws can't destroy? If so, what is it made out of?
