Factors Affecting the Whippet Dog Price in India

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

Type

There are three different price categories for a Whippet 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 Whippet puppy can cost anywhere around ₹30,000.
  • 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 different coat colors of a canine can influence its overall price. In case Whippets, these pooches are found in a lot of different coat colors such as Black, Fawn, Cream, Blue, Brindle, White, Red and Tan. And, based on the rarity of the coat color, the price of this pooch may vary. The rarer the color, the higher might be the price.

Age & Gender

Usually, breeders tend to sell male dogs at a higher cost as compared to their female counterparts. Also, younger dogs and puppies are sold at a higher price by the breeders as compared to the older or fully grown dogs.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Whippet 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

Dogs that are easily available in a region tend to cost less compared to those canines that are harder to find in that region. As Whippets have a subpar availability in the country, the price of this breed is a bit on the higher side compared to other breeds that are readily available.

Reputed Breeder

Also, it is commonly seen that reputed and popular breeders tend to charge a bit more for a dog compared to other breeders who are not very well-known or reputed like them. This again affects the overall price of a 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.
