These are the UK’s most expensive dog breeds in 2021
The UK’s most expensive dog breeds have been revealed and the most in demand will set you back thousands of dollars.
In 2020, the average price of a puppy in the UK has more than doubled from the previous year, with an average puppy costing Â£ 1,875.
And the most popular breeds could put a strain on your wallet with costs of nearly Â£ 3,000 for the most wanted dogs, according to experts at Pets4Homes.
They said: âThe global pandemic has caused an imbalance between the supply of and demand for pets and future owners are more than ever willing to shell out large sums of money to secure their desired pet.
“Many breeders and sellers have recognized this and as such we have seen prices follow a similar trend with significant price increases for the most popular dog breeds.”
The breed that has seen the biggest price increase is the Cocker Spaniel. A puppy will now set you back Â£ 2,230, a 207% increase over the breed’s average price in 2019.
Owning a dog can be a costly affair with the food, vet bills, and grooming fees piling up – so it’s a good idea to weigh all of this before deciding to buy a new puppy.
