Who doesn’t love a tiny, furry, cute ball of fur that this breed is? Maltese dogs are immensely popular all around the world mainly due their adorable size and endearing appearance. Their popularity in India is also gradually increasing day by day.

The Maltese dog price in India is fairly high but that is mainly because these canines are a bit on the rare side when it comes to their availability in the country. The Maltese dog price is heavily dependent on which variation or type of this canine you are looking for. There are mainly three variations of this pooch that are available at various breeder’s places. These are as follows:

  1. Basic
  2. KCI Registered
  3. Show Quality

Both the Maltese dog price in India and its quality and standards go high when we move from basic to show type. The Maltese dog price starts at about ₹30,000, but it can reach up to ₹1,20,000 if someone opts for the show type.

Given below are the average price ranges of the Maltese puppies which are available in various variations:

  • Maltese Puppy price (Basic): ₹30,000 to ₹50,000
  • Maltese Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹50,000 to ₹80,000
  • Maltese Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹80,000 to ₹1,20,000

*The inner attributes and temperamental characteristics remain the same in all the variations, but the standards and quality of the breed improve as we go down towards the Show class. The show quality dog is a canine who is closer to the description of the dog breed that is provided by various kennel clubs.

Now, once you have decided to raise a Maltese puppy as a pet, the next thing you should concentrate on is getting it from a good breeder. It is immensely important that you get the pup you desire only from a reputable source because it is advantageous for both you and your soon-to-be pet. A trusted breeder will only provide you a fully fit and healthy pup, he will guide you and clear all the confusion that you might have regarding the proper maintenance and handling of the breed that you want to bring home and he will provide all this at a reasonable and fair price. And, the experience of getting a pet from a reputable breeder is far more positive and satisfying than getting the pup of your dreams from any random unreliable breeder who only cares about how much money he is making and is not concerned about the overall quality and fitness of the canine that he is providing to you. Therefore, you should never compromise on the quality and standards of a breeder while you are looking for the pet that you desire. But, it is not very easy to find a trustworthy breeder.
