Factors Affecting the German Shorthaired Pointer Price in India

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

Type

There are three different price categories for a German Shorthaired Pointer 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 German Shorthaired Pointer puppy can cost anywhere around ₹25,000.
  • 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 features such as the color of the coat of the canine can also influence its overall price. In case of German Shorthaired Pointers, as these dogs are found in a lot of different colors, the price of these canines may also vary depending upon the rarity of the coat color. The rarer the color, the higher might be the price of these pooches. Different colors in which the GSPs are found in are - Liver, Liver Roan, Liver & White, Black, Black & White, Black Roan, White, White & Liver.

Age & Gender

Old dogs are generally sold at a lower price as compared to puppies and young canines. Also, it is seen that many breeders sell male dogs at a greater price as compared to female pooches.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred German Shorthaired Pointer 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

Canines that are easily available in a location tend to cost less than the dogs who are harder to find in that region. In case of GSPs, their availability is fairly mediocre in the country and thus, the price of these dogs is a bit high in some places (where availability is low) and in others, it is quite reasonable (where availability in decent). Still, the overall price of this breed is not very high especially compared to some other European Breeds.

Reputed Breeder

Many popular and reputed breeders are also known to sell dogs at a fairly higher price as compared to other breeders who are not so well known. But getting a dog from a reputed and a good breeder generally means you are getting a fully healthy and fit 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.
