Now every potential owner should be aware about various factors that can affect the original German Shepherd price in India. These factors are as follows:

  • Type

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

  1. Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic German Shepherd puppy for sale can cost anywhere around ₹14,000.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

On the basis of appearance and physical characteristics of a Dog, it can again be divided into various types and each type can influence the price of the breed. In case of German Shepherd dog, mostly its coat is known to affect its overall price.

A German Shepherd can be found in different types of coats. This canine can have a long coat, medium coat, and a short coat. It can also have a double coat (outer + under coat) or only a single coat (outer coat). And based on these various kinds of coats, the cost of a German Shepherd dog differs. Also, German Shepherds are found in various colors like Black and Red, Black and Tan, Black and Silver et cetera. This also influence its price as the colors which are not very common are known to increase the price of the canine.

  • Age & Gender

As there is a greater demand for puppies than there is for older dogs, a GSD puppy which is of the right age to be sold to a new owner (6-8 weeks) will cost more than an adult or a grown up canine. Some breeders also charge differently for a pooch on the basis of its gender. Mostly, male dogs or puppies cost more than their female counterparts.

  • Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred dog is higher than the mixed-breed as the 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

If a breed is very easily available in your area, then its price will be (mostly)fairly lower as compared to the breed that is hard to come by in your region and this is the same case with German Shepherds. As they are pretty easily available almost everywhere in India, they usually have a lower price tag as compared to a rare breed such as Belgian Malinois. Also, location or the area where you are getting your puppy from is again a factor that can affect the price of a dog. If you are getting a pooch from a different state as it might not be avialable in your own city, then its price can easily go very high due to various additional costs than will add up in the final price of a dog like shipping charges et cetera.

  • Reputed Breeder

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

  • Miscellaneous Factors

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
