PUPPY SELECTION – THE PRICE IS IMPORTANT.
There is simply no one indifferent to this breed: a touching folded muzzle, delicate hair the color of coffee with milk and amazing eyes that cannot be denied.
Seeing such a miracle, for many people immediately the question of choosing a dog breed ceases to exist, because pugs are not only charming in appearance, but also have a wonderful character, are compact and ideal for companions to a child. As usual, having decided the questions “to take or not to take a dog”, “which breed is suitable for us”, “can I walk on time” and others, people remember one important detail – how much does a pug cost?
Yes, we live in a very difficult time, many of us are deprived of financial stability, and therefore people, for the most part, are trying to save on a dog, because for many it seems at least strange to give a round sum for a puppy that fits in the palm of your hand and, as a result, the future the owners make a fatal mistake – they go to slurred markets or to propagandists. Dogs, and especially pugs, are creatures that will stay with you for at least fifteen years and will take a direct part in all the events of your life. Therefore, the dog must be healthy, both physically and mentally, but you do not have to wait for this from the puppy out of the box with obscure genes.
SELECTION OF THE KENNEL.
A good, competent breeder, in love with his business, considers dogs to be his own children and cares for them accordingly. He cares not only about the beautiful exterior, but also about the health of the puppies, good psyche and the correct continuation of the pedigree line. Those who sell the “most thoroughbred” pugs “per ruble bundle” are usually engaged in what is called “breeding” among dog breeders (not to be confused with pedigree work!). Often, female breeders knit each estrus, feed the cheapest food or leftovers, and, as a result, the unfortunate animal has poor health and dies very quickly, and there can be no talk of normal healthy offspring in such conditions.
The owner of a good kennel, may not sleep at night, looking for information about the breed, knows all the city’s veterinarians, can spend hours broadcasting about his dogs (that’s why they are considered to be “left-handed” people), and sells puppies only to those he considers worthy and often provides any help in raising their “grandchildren”.
Breeding work to improve the breed and exhibit is a separate saga. How much it costs time, nerves and money, only a breeder knows, who with a crazy look awaits the decision of the judges in the ring and drops the tears of happiness when awards are awarded to his dog. Each exhibition is quite expensive: to get to the place (and the exhibitions are often held not only in Russia), work with the handler (the dog still needs to be properly prepared and beautifully shown in the ring) and other and other …
Vetkontrol. Any self-respecting kennel has a permanent doctor who leads dogs throughout life. Indeed, without careful monitoring of the state of the animal, you will never get puppies – future champions, or just healthy and adequate family pets. The price of a visit to the veterinarian will cost, for example, in Moscow, from 1000 to 2500 rubles, depending on the clinic and the qualifications of the doctor.
Nutrition. Thousands of copies were broken in this matter, “drying” or “natural”, the opinions of experts and lovers, their own sad or positive experience … Each breeder goes through this hell and still finds a middle ground, but invariably one thing – high-quality food cannot be cheap, therefore, any breed, including pug cost, which often scares off, has a very, very tangible price.
PRICE OF A Pug Puppy.
What can you save on when choosing a puppy? For a pug breed, the price can be slightly reduced, due to which puppy class you choose.
If you dreamed of attending exhibitions, doing pedigree work and more, then you need a show class – these are the best puppies of the litter with the perfect anatomy, exactly matching the standards and having the right temperament. Show class puppies have the highest price; their average cost is from 30,000 to 50,000 rubles.
Often enough dogs of breeding class are acquired, they are also well suited for breeding and breeding. Most often these are bitches with good exterior data and reproductive functions, which, with the right choice of a partner, can give puppies of a show class. The cost of such a dog depends on the gender, appearance and value of the pedigree and is approximately 20,000 or more.
The most bought option is a pet class or, more simply, a favorite on the sofa. Such puppies often have flaws that make them uncompetitive in the show ring and undesirable for breeding. Usually, these nuances are visible only to professionals: a slightly wrong bite, or a speck of wool, the tail is not well enough twisted into a donut, and so on. But usually they sell only those puppies whose flaws do not affect the health and psyche of the animal. These dogs have a low price and are often already neutered / sterilized. You can buy such a puppy for the price of 15,000 and more.
