Factors Affecting the Akita dog Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Akita price in India. These factors are as follows:

Type

There are three different price categories for an Akita dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Akita puppy can cost anywhere around ₹40,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Now as Akitas can be found in two different types, American Akita and Japanese Akita, this can easily influence the overall Akita price in the country. Breeders tend to charge differently for different types of Akitas. Also, these dogs are found in various colors such as White, Fawn, Black, Red Fawn et cetera and these colors are also known to affect the overall Akita dog price in India.

Age & Gender

Generally, breeders are known to sell male dogs at a bit of a higher cost as compared to female canines. Also, puppies and young dogs are again sold at a higher price as compared to old or grown-up pooches.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Akita is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

As Akitas have a low to mediocre availability in most parts of India, its average price is a lot higher as compared to those breeds who are fairly easily available in the country. Also, if you are getting a dog from a nearby breeder, then it cost should be a bit lower as compared to the same breed of dog that one might be getting from a breeder that is located at a far-away place (say, different state or region). This is because of the extra charges such as traveling and shipping expenses which gets added to the overall price of a dog.

Reputed Breeder

You will find a dog at a bit of lower price at those breeders who are not highly popular or well-known. Reputed breeders are known to sell dogs at a fairly high price but generally, the quality and health of the canines are also fairly better at a reputed breeder's place.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
