The Basset Hounds are short-legged dogs that originated in France quite a long time ago. These dogs were used by the hunters in the European countries to track various games. And, they were quite awesome at their job as their strong nose helped them to point out the position of various animals like rabbits and other small games. Since then, they have come a long way and today they are mostly seen as great house pets and family companions.

In India, the availability and demand for the Basset Hounds is not that high. These dogs are considered to be a bit rare in several parts of this country, but gradually it is believed that the demand for this breed is rising, although at a very slow rate. But regardless of their popularity in India, they can make a pretty decent house pet and can be a fine choice for most Indian dog parents. These dogs are very apartment friendly in nature, they are highly affectionate and devoted to their human parents, and they are immensely kind and friendly with children and strangers which makes them a wonderful breed for everybody. But as their tolerance to heat and high temperatures is not that good, they do require a lot of care and protection from their parents if they are raised in a hot and humid area.

Given below is the average price list of the Basset Hound puppies which are available in India in various variations.

Factors Affecting the Basset Hound Price in India

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


There are three different price categories for a Basset Hound 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 Basset Hound 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 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

Physical characteristics such as coat colors are known to heavily influence the overall price of a dog. In the case of Basset Hounds, they are found in a lot of different color combinations because of which the original Basset Hound price gets affected. Some of the most Basset Hounds colors are White & Chocolate, Black & White, Black & Brown, Red & White, Lemon & White, and Tricolor (example - Black, Tan & White) and based on the rarity of the color, the overall Basset Hound price is affected.

Age & Gender

It is quite often seen that male dogs are sold at a little higher price as compared to female pooches. Also, older or fully matured dogs cost a bit less when compared to young canines or puppies. And in this manner, the age and gender of a dog can influence its overall price.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Basset Hound 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

Availability of a canine is also known to affect its overall cost in a region. For example, as Basset Hounds has a below average availability in India, its price is a bit higher in the country as compared to those breeds that are very easily available such as Beagles, Labradors et cetera.

Also, if you are getting a dog from a nearby location, then its price should be a bit lower as compared to getting the same dog from a far-away location (different region or state). This is because extra charges such as traveling or shipping cost also get added to the overall price of the canine.

Reputed Breeder

Well-known and reputed breeders are also known to sell canines at a bit of higher price as compared to those breeders who are not as popular as them. This again influences the overall price of a dog in a region.

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.
