There was a dog offered on here years ago,i cant remember the price,maybe £350?It looked like it had done a load of work,but i knew one of the previous owners who had got it from a dogs home,found it didnt measure up to any standard and had sold it for a song to someone who had passed it on to someone who had asked some one to sell it online because on looks alone it seemed very usefull,all that glistens isnt gold.

We aint got it that bad really. People paying £1500-£2000 for lilac Bulldogs that can't walk the local shop without having to put a oxygen mask on, they also come with a guarentee.....of at least £5000 worth of vet bills.

Price of a pup:        £150

Feed for two years. Let's say £5.00 per week minimum:   £520

Vets bills minimum : £100

Wear and tear on kennel or house minimum: £50.

Time socialising, training, walking and general care: A lot!

To buy, train, feed and vet a dog for two years would cost at least a grand. And you could be left with a dog that's not up to scratch at the end of it all.

IMO £500 for a dog that does everything you want it to is cheap. I would be asking why the reason for sale and wanting to see the dog performing more than once.

Got a litter here now and not a penny is crossing hands most definitely be out of pocket but I and few lads will have well bred pups with years of work ahead that priceless to me ! My uncle asked why you not charging any money because I'd rather my litter go to lads I know and trust for free than to a dickhead i don't know for a 100 pound !

I'd rather sit in or be out with nets than buy in an adult dog to get out, if I ain't reared it, I ain't running it

Some of the coursing lads pay top money for saplings out of known dogs/ bitches, I reckon it costs you a grand to rear a pup up to 18 month old if you put a price on your time as well as upkeep. A lad I know ask me the other day to find a top daytime rabbit dog for him says put price on it meaning he pay top money still everyone different. Atb Flacko

Never bought a working dog for more years than I can remember..... But why are lurchers and terriers under valued so much £600 for a made dog would be nothing. You would struggle to get a lab or a pointer straight out the nest for that kind of money...

I dont think they are under valued ... 

 

These KC & pedigree types are probly over valued.. 

 

Think if your happy paying the price thats all that matters.. 

 

I would pay up to £250/£300 for a pup, Id not pay anymore cause their is more supply than demand.. 

 

To many folk breeding lurchers which keeps the prices down Jmo..

It seems to me people are willing to shell out more on a lamp and battery than they are on a decent hound/best pal.....
