Thread: Price of Puppies for Aussie Bulldogs

    As they are unregistered and unhealth tested ethically you should only charge what they cost you to raise. You have no proof they are pureBRED, and if they are different sizes even though they are the same 'breed' mixing sizes still makes them mutts.

    So cost of vaccinations, food, worming etc. You are probably looking at around $200 per puppy. Anything else is just being greedy if you haven't done the leg work before breeding.

    Registered, health tested dogs sell for thousands simply because they have cost the breeder thousands to have all their testing done, then you have certification in working trials, agility, obedience and conformation... it all costs.

    If you desex before sale you could charge up to $500.

    Crested, some are health tested.
    They are also registered under a club even though they are not yet a recognised breed.
    Pups normally sell for around $1200.

    If they are health tested and registered with the breed club $1200 would be acceptable, but I don't think these particular dogs are either... so they have no reason to charge such a high fee.

    Just because $1200 is the 'going rate' doesn't mean everyone is entitled to charge it.
    My doctor charges $38 for a consult, I'm not going to start charging my friends $38 for a band-aid.

    Default thank you

    [QUOTE=Keira & Phoenix;140515]Good to hear you will be picky with homes.

    To be honest as they are not papered dogs and have essentially been backyard bred without any health testing on the parents (ie: PENN Hip scores and checks for other breed issues) and you will not be providing anyone with health guarantees on the pups (ie: if you sell a pup who ends up sick will you take them back and replace with another pup or refund the price of the pup) you should only be selling these pups at a price that will cover your costs ie: cost of vaccinations, worming, vet checks, microchipping. If you want, you can add an extra 120 or so to the price and offer it back to anyone who desexes their pup and shows you proof.

    Will you be desexing your bitch after this litter to avoid any further litters?

    There are a lot of dogs in the shelter and with every litter you breed you risk one of YOUR pups ending up in the shelter (this happens no matter how closely you check possible puppy homes) and you also take away another chance for a pound dog to find a home.[/QUOTe


    Hi yes I agree. I just want Eevie to have a safe and healthy birth that and the puppies health is my concern. I brought both of my dogs neglected and Eevie was brought to keep Rocky company as he was lonely while I was at work and they are best friends. Yes Eevie will be desexed afterwards. I did want them to have 1 litter of puppies and they both are very healthy and calm and lovely but yes she will be desexed. I know about the large amount of neglected animals, I volunteer at a refuge sometimes and its heart breaking. Thanks for your help.

    Personally I would be charging more than $200 for a puppy.

    Yep I know they come with no guarantees etc but any moron can come up with $200 for a very cute puppy and spin you a tail about how good a home it will go to.

    Unless I've misunderstood my concern is that the bitch is much smaller than the dog??? If I'm wrong then I apologise. But because of this I urge you to get both of them desexed as soon as possible as your dog will now know all about the birds and the bees and be more tempted, with the experience behind him, by any bitch in the local area that comes in.

    Also now is the time to start researching the whelping process and building a good relationship with your vet or find a mentor, as "aussie" bulldog or not, difficult births happen and things can go wrong even with much easier whelping breeds, so planning is crucial & well worth it.

    Good luck with your litter and I look forward to seeing pics of the puppies.

    so does that mean only wealthy people can provide good homes for pups?

    No but the purchase price of a dog is the cheapest part. If you can't afford the purchase price how will you afford the upkeep.

    These are a breed that will attract people because they are different. So instead of attracting a person who has researched the breed (as much as you can with this type of dog) you will possibly attract those that are interested in it being different for all the wrong reasons.

    I've been breeding dogs for years and from experience heavily discounting a dog, any dog, isn't in it's best interest.

    totally agree, but if you are making some serious profit from the litter then what makes you any different to a puppy farmer.....which is essentially what you do when you inflate the price of a litter with no health checks etc, breeding for profit.

    as an experienced breeder you'd know that you charge what you do for your pups cos they have had the health checks,
    paid the stud fee,

    done the genetic testing to ensure you arent breeding pups which arent beneficial to the breed,

    taken the time to carefully select which bitch and which dog to mate

    included the time you have spent answering questions on the litter from would be owners

    included the 24/7 support for new puppy owners.

    charging an extrodinary amount for what is really an accidental mating is wrong in my eyes, charge what they owe you and that is.
