How much did your Vizsla cost?

I tried searching for this but didnt find much. Let me know if its a taboo topic that I shouldnt have asked about. I became curious after reading a post about a guy who bought his V at a pet store. Im guessing there was probably no/little markup from the mill to the pet store (maybe one and the same) so i wouldnt be surprised if its close in price to breeders.

Initial investment wise, little Berkeley was $1700 from a breeder in upstate NY. I'm sure everyone that has had a V for a while looks back at their purchase price and laughs, I think Berk's expense has already doubled after all the goodies we bought him. When I was a little kid my parents had a V, they said they paid $500 but that was back in 1984.

I cant remember if I read it here on the forum or elsewhere but I saw someone say that the V breeder community tries to keep prices reasonable to deter puppy mills from breeding/ making a huge profit.

$1500 - this was the cost 2 yrs ago here in Florida. Not sure if it has gone up. I think there was a thread on the forum a while ago with this same question.

Re: How much did your Vizsla cost?

Hi Ruby Roo!

I think this is an interesting topic too. Our girl Nelly was 800 - not sure what that is in dollars, maybe about $1500? We got her from a very reputable breeder just outside the town we live in. To ensure pups went to the best home possible, our breeder took no reserves or deposits to avoid people having changed their mind but taking the pup anyway as they had already put money down.

I know our breeder was asked by some potential owners if she would drop the price but i don't see why anyone should pay less than the going price for such a healthy, intelligent, loyal and beautiful breed.

I think in the UK prices vary between 750 and 850.

Hope that helps!

Hello ! There is a pretty long thread on this very subject that was started last summer (June, 2012). You might like to have a read through:

Thanks for the link! Apparently I dont know how to use the search bar very well . . . .

Looks like Berk was around the going rate.

I rescued my guy from the shelter for $12. It was the end of the month and they were overcrowded, so I got the deal of a lifetime. @6 monthes he came to me microchipped, nuetered and current on shots. Best $12 I've ever spent

Re: How much did your Vizsla cost?

Our Riley cost $1100 from a "reputable" breeder. He is 2 now and have spent well over $12,000 for his care in the last year, but wouldn't trade him for the world. Chuck, we rescued and he was free. We've had problems off and on with ear infections and a round of demodex, but part of that stems from having absolutely no medical care his first year of life. He is healthy as a horse and didn't cost anything except a lot of love.

Re: How much did your Vizsla cost?

giandaliajr ------- I'm new to this forum. My boyfriend and I are looking at breeders in upstate NY as we live in Binghamton NY. What is the breeder you got your little Berkeley from? we are set to look at pups outside of Rochester this saturday. That breeder is AKC and charges $1550 for theirs.
They have a 2 yr health guarantee on hips eyes etc for their pups as well.
