Factors Affecting the Pug dog Price in India

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


There are three different price categories for a Pug 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 Pug puppy can cost anywhere around ₹15,000.
  • 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 pooch 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

Pugs are generally categorized on the basis of the different coat colors that they are found in. And depending on the rarity of color, the Pug dog price can vary in the country. The most common and easily available colors of a Pug are Black and Fawn, hence price of such pug puppies and dogs should be lower than those canines whose coat colors are fairly uncommon. In India, Apricot and Silver Fawn Pugs are fairly hard to find, hence they are mostly priced a lot higher than the Black or Fawn Pugs.

Age & Gender

Usually, Puppies and younger dogs are sold at a much higher price than the old or mature canines. And this is the same case with the Pugs, as the cost of a fully grown Pug is normally a lot less than a Pug Puppy. Also, some breeders are known to sell male Pugs for a bit more than the female Pugs.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Pug 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

Availability of a dog also affects its overall price in a region greatly. As Pugs are usually very easily available in most parts of India, their price is fairly lower than those breeds who are not that easily available and are considered to be a bit rare. Also, location again plays an important part in determining the price of a dog. If you are getting a puppy/dog from a location near to you, then its price should be lower than the dog that you'll be getting from far away (from a different state or city).

Reputed Breeder

The Reputation and popularity of a Breeder can also affect the price of a dog. Getting a puppy from a well-renowned breeder usually cost more than getting it from a 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.
