Pointers are highly energetic and active dogs that hail from the United Kingdom. They have a playful and affable personality and they are very loving and loyal to their family members and close ones. They like to play a lot of games with their loved ones and they are fond of open spaces where they can run freely.

In India, the demand for this breed is gradually increasing. People are in love with these dogs’ energetic and happy personality and thus they want to raise these pooches as a pet. There are some other reasons as well for the increasing demand of these dogs. Pointers don’t require a lot of special care and attention from their human parents during the hotter months as they have decent tolerance to heat and high temperatures and can comfortably thrive in a hot country like India. Also, these pooches are very loyal and kind to their family members and finally they are quite affordable and thus fairly easy on the pockets of most people out there. But one thing to note in case of Pointers is that these pooches have very high exercise needs and thus, it is important to keep these canines active and satisfied.

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

  • Pointer Puppy price (Basic): ₹20,000 to ₹30,000
  • Pointer Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹30,000 to ₹45,000
  • Pointer Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹45,000 to ₹70,000


Now, if you have decided to bring home a Pointer puppy and you want to get this pooch from a breeder, then you should start focusing on finding the best and reliable breeders to get it from. It is very crucial for both you and your soon-to-be pet that you get it only from a trusted breeder. Many breeders in the country are just looking to make extra money and they do not pay attention towards the quality and fitness of the canines. But, contrary to that, there are also numerous breeders who are very passionate about canines and they prioritize the health and standards of the pooch over everything else. And, these are the breeders you should be getting your pets from. So, it is important never to compromise on the quality of both the canine you are looking to raise and the breeder who will be providing that canine to you.

Factors Affecting the Pointer Dog Price in India

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

Type

There are three different price categories for a 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 Pointer puppy can cost anywhere around ₹20,000.
  • 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 can greatly influence the overall price of a pooch. The English Pointers are found in two different types which are based on some small differences in their physical characteristics. These types are Show Pointers and Field Pointers and these different types can affect the overall English Pointer Price.

Also, these dogs can be found in a lot of different coat colors such as Liver, Black, Lemon, Orange and Brown and these different colors can again influence the price of these dogs based on the rarity of the coat color.

Age & Gender

Old dogs are generally sold at a lower price as compared to puppies and young canines. Hence, age is also a crucial factor in deciding the price of a dog. 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 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. And, since the availability of English Pointers is gradually improving in this country, the price of this breed is not very high especially when we compare it to some other breeds whose availability is not that great.

Also, if you are getting a pooch from a faraway location, its overall cost increases because of the additional charges such as traveling expenses which are added to the initial price of the pooch.

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.
