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.
