captain's chair seat covers

Has anyone tried or found any suitable protective covers for flexsteel captain's chairs? I have searched quite a bit and everything I find is geared toward vans, and SUV's with bucket seats but are not large enough or have the wrong contour for our seats. Just looking for something to protect the seats from little doggie feet. Although our dog seldom jumps up on our seats since she is told not to, there are times....

I see there are services that will custom make covers, still looking for something "in stock" that I can just order and put on myself for simplicity.

Trying to avoid using beach towels since they are a pain.

We couldn't find any covers so we reupholstered ours with Ultra Leather Plus. We used the fabric we removed as a pattern.
I had to buy a very old sewing machine (1938) in a junk shop because the inexpensive Brother we had with us couldn't handle the job.

The old machine didn't do anything fancy but sewed a beautiful straight seam and had no problem with the Ultra Leather.
While we were at it we reupholstered all of the other furniture. Bought some high quality high density foam and replaced what was in the dinette seats.

I am impressed! Our rig is brand new so if I don't find some seat covers we may be doing the same thing.

An upholstery shop could probably make you some slip-on covers. Certainly more cost and hassle than if you can find some ready-made, but it's an option.
