Factors Affecting the Australian Shepherd Price in India

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

Type

There are three different price categories for an Australian Shepherd 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 Shepherd puppy can cost anywhere around ₹35,000.
  • 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

The Australian Shepherds are found in a lot of different coat colors and based on the rarity of the coat color, the overall price of these canines might vary. The rarer the color of the coat, the higher might be the price of this breed. Different colors in which these canines are found in are - Black, Blue Merle, Red Merle, Merle, Tan, Red, Black Tricolor.

Age & Gender

Young dogs and pups are generally sold at a higher price as compared to old or fully-grown canines. Also, it is seen a lot of times that male dogs are sold at a bit of a higher cost as compared to their female counterparts.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Australian Shepherd 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

The availability of the Australian Shepherds is quite mediocre in this country. And as we know the canines who are not that easily available in a region tend to cost more compared to the pooches are readily available. Thus, the overall price of this breed is a little on the higher side. But if we compare these canines to some other exotic breeds, the price of Australian Shepherds still seems quite reasonable.

Reputed Breeder

Also, it is commonly seen that reputed and popular breeders tend to charge a bit more for a dog compared to other breeders who are not very well-known or reputed like them. This again affects the overall price of a canine.

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.
