The Australian Cattle dogs are compactly built canines who are immensely lively and energetic in nature. They possess a well-proportioned body which is decently strong and sturdy and is covered quite well with a hard and dense coat. Back in the day, these dogs had the habit of nipping at the heels of cattle while herding them and that’s why these pooches were given the title of ‘Heeler’.

The Australian Cattle Dog is a pretty adaptable and adjustable breed. These dogs have decent tolerance to both high and low temperatures and thus they can comfortably thrive in almost any part of the world. These canines are very loyal and protective of their human parents and loved ones. They are highly intelligent and are fairly easy to train and handle. They have low grooming needs and their overall maintenance cost is not very high. All these things certainly make these Australian Cattle Dogs a great fit for a lot of people out there. Still, the availability and demand for this breed in India is pretty mediocre.

If you are thinking of raising an Australian Cattle Dog as a pet and you want to get this canine from a breeder, then it is important that you get it only from a trusted breeder. Many breeders today are just looking to increase their profits and they are least bothered about the overall quality of a canine that they are providing to the potential dog parents. But, on the other hand, there are some breeders who not only care about the prospective dog parents’ satisfaction but they also prioritize the health and fitness of all the canines that are available at their place over every other thing. And, these are the kind of breeders that you should be getting your future furry friends from.

Factors Affecting the Australian Cattle Dog Price in India

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

Type

There are three different price categories for an Australian Cattle 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 Australian Cattle Dog puppy can cost anywhere around ₹30,000.
  • 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 the characteristics of a dog are not similar to its breed standards description, then that canine is not considered to be “Show Quality”. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Physical characteristics such as different colors of the coat and different patterns or textures of the coat of a canine can also influence its overall price. In case of Australian Cattle Dogs, these pooches are available in 2 different colors which are Red and Blue and their coats can also have two different patterns on them and they are called as Speckled Coat and Mottled Coat, and these physical attributes can easily affect the overall price of these canines.

Age & Gender

There is a greater demand for puppies as compared to older or mature canines, hence the puppies usually cost more compared to grown-up pooches. Also, sometimes, male dogs are priced higher as compared to the female canines.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred dog 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

Dogs that are easily available in a location or region tend to cost less compared to the canines that are harder to find in that region. In case of Australian Cattle Dogs, these pooches have a subpar availability in this country and thus their overall price is a bit on the higher side especially compared to some other breeds that are readily available.

Reputed Breeder

If you are getting your dog from a popular and a reputed breeder, then again, its price can go fairly high. As getting a dog from a good breeder generally means you are getting a good quality pooch that has been maintained in hygienic and wholesome conditions.

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.
