Dog Breed Prices (with Pictures)

The price you pay for a dog depends on 1) the dog breed, 2) who you get the dog from (reputable breeder vs. rescue/adoption), and 3) where you get the dog from (like real estate location matters). There are many other factors that affect the price you pay for a dog. But start with these three.

How much does a dog cost?

Remember this: never confuse “Dog Price” with “Dog Cost”. The cost, as in the lifetime cost is what matters most. This includes the initial price you pay to bring your puppy home plus the ongoing monthly expenses for things like food, vet, grooming, insurance, etc.

The cost amounts to much more than the dog price over the future months and years your dog spends with you.

Nevertheless, the price of the dog is a good place to start your research.
