pedigree-pupThe price of a pure bred puppy will depend on whether you’re buying a show puppy or a companion puppy. Puppies that are sold on a spay/neuter contract usually sell for about $800.  If your buying a puppy to work or compete, then be prepared to spend at least $1,500.

Make sure that you get these things for that price.

  • At least three generations of pedigree.
  • Titled Champions (sporting, working, or Conformation titles) in the pedigree, within the first two generations listed (directly descended from).
  • Hips, Elbows and  eyes are all good and free from genetic abnormalities.
  • You need a guarantee that your puppy is free from inheritable diseases or other conditions. A refund or exchange policy must be noted.
  • The puppy should be well socialized
  • Care, grooming and feeding information must be provided.

Check these things out before you buy that dog carrier, dog leash or any other accessories.
