Is There A Price You Would Put On your Working Terriers (please read)

Recommended Posts

A few of us who choose to hunt jagds co-operate on the import and export of dogs. I am currently holding in quarentine two pups for a man in Australia that has a difficult time getting dogs. I am not charging him a dime for the pups or my time. He is covering the vet costs and the transport as would be expected. I have also sent this man frozen semen and not asked a dime for it, and he has helped me as well. We all work together to get what we need and will continue to. When I am done with a dog, I will gladly hold it for him if he is in need. That said I have never looked down on a man who chooses to sell dogs. The dog will give you reason enough to like or dislike what the man is about. I have friends who disagree with me completely. But these are my views and I own them.

It doesn't matter if its a terrier, lurcher, retreiver etc with out our dogs there is little we could achieve. How do you put a price on them, people on here try to make out there just tools not worth £500 for a dog. But what about when your in the pub recounting tales of a epic dig that took hours to find the dog nose to nose doing you proud, or a difficult runner that retrieved text book infront of a line of guns, the lurcher that fills pot day or night. When you can spends hours telling stories of past and present dogs for hours there are priceless in my opinion.

well said one of my mates who trials labs had a phone call from america,asking him how much did he want for every lab in his kennels,being the man he is,all i could see was pound signs in his eyes,he asked me to put a price on them,i said dont be so daft as to sell them all you will have to start all over again,he didnt sellmpion them and the next year he won the championship,and drew about £50,000 in stud fees from the one dog

Great Topic! if for any given reason my partner sold any of our terriers he would be made homeless! I have in the past spent a small fortune on dogs that have ment to be doing the bizz but have not lived up to what was expected! so lesson learned there but at the same time i bought our best bitch in i guess its a case of one mans junk is another mans tresure!

I know of a guy that basicaly enjoys taking a quality prospect and finishing it out only to sell it and start all over. I have seen a couple of them and they are nice dogs. No question about it. But the pay off can't be the money, because it just doesn't seem like enough. I doubt I could do it. But I can't find fault with him doing so. People are different and that's no big deal. JM2C
