The Leonberger is a large-sized German Breed that came into existence in the year 1846 in a small town called Leonberg. These large-sized canines have a lion-like appearance but from the inside, these pooches are extremely loving, sweet and kind. They are quite obedient in nature and are very loyal and faithful to their human parents and loved ones.

In India, the availability and demand for this breed is pretty low and there are a few reasons that might tell us why is that. First, these dogs are not very adaptable and apartment friendly in nature. Second, their tolerance to heat and high-temperatures is quite poor and thus they would require a lot of care and attention from their human parents especially in the summer months of India. And lastly, these pooches are quite pricey to bring home and then maintain properly.

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

  • Leonberger Puppy price (Basic): ₹65,000 to ₹1,00,000
  • Leonberger Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹1,00,000 to ₹1,50,000
  • Leonberger Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹1,50,000 to ₹2,20,000

Now, if you have decided to bring home a Leonberger puppy and you want to get this canine from a breeder, then it is highly crucial that you get it only from a reputed and trustworthy breeder. You should always look for any kind of pup you desire to raise as a pet only at a reliable breeder’s place, but when the canine (or breed) is extremely rare and expensive, then it becomes all the more important that you get it only from a trusted breeder. A breeder who not only cares about the health, fitness, and quality of the canines that he is providing to the potential dog parents but he also genuinely cares about the needs and requirements of the prospective dog parents; only this kind of a breeder is right for you when you are searching for a pet to raise.

Factors Affecting the Leonberger Price in India

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


There are three different price categories for a Leonberger 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 Leonberger puppy can cost anywhere around ₹65,000.
  • 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 attributes such at the coat color of a canine can also affect its overall price. In case of Leonbergers, these dogs are found in these different coat colors - Red, Reddish Brown, Sandy, Yellow and based upon the rarity of the coat color, the price of these canines may vary. The rarer the color of the coat, the higher might be the price of these pooches.

Age & Gender

Generally, puppies and younger dogs cost a bit more than the older or full-grown dogs. Also, male pooches tend to cost more when compared to the female canines. And this is how, age and gender play a role in influencing the overall price of a pooch.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Leonberger 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 canines that are easily available in a location or a region tend to cost less than the pooches that are harder to find in that region. In case of Leonbergers, these dogs have a subpar availability in this country, thus the overall price of these canines is quite high.

Reputed Breeder

Canines that you get from a reputed and popular breeder also tend to cost more when compared to pooches who are bought from a smaller or not-so popular breeder.

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.
