Consider what will cost you a dog that has health issues or a dog with unstable temperament. It is really best to purchase a dog that was health tested AND has good scores (not just health tested). One of the articles below deals with Labs. Take into account that CAS are larger (price tag on everything listed in the article goes up due to size alone) and CAS do their job that is guard/protect. For example, to health-test your dog, you need more money because anesthesia is more expensive. Also, a bill for food for a CAS is much higher than for a lab. CAS guard. This about it: how much is your life (and your family's) worth to you? If you own goats or other livestock, how much is their life worth to you?
We do not have a set price per dog. Instead, we price based on dog quality, the number of pups in a litter and dog's purpose. In some instances, when we have a very unusual litter where we travel to foreign countries for a breeding, the price of puppies may be higher due to demand. However, we always price reasonably within current market range. Our prices are never outrageous. Furthermore, our prices are always lower than a price of a dog you would have to import yourself by going to a foreign country. The good news is that we did the research for you. All you need to do is to pick a pup of your choosing, here in the U.S.A.
We do offer a variety of discounts, so please make sure to check with us to see if you qualify for any.
On a final note, consider that some dogs have litters of 2 pups, not always 6 or 8. Now, do the math. Do not get me wrong, we are not trying to advocate for crazy prices but rather, we are asking you to look at things from a different perspective. We are not saving money on the quality of food, vet care or the quality of dogs we are importing. instead we give the best food and care to our dogs.
