How Much Does a Samoyed Puppy Cost?

If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Samoyed, you might be in for some sticker shock. A good puppy from a reputable breeder can easily cost thousands. Here’s why Samoyed puppies cost so much and what you can do to find a dog.

How much does a Samoyed puppy cost?

My Anya is a bargain puppy. She had found a family as a show-quality female, but the family was going through a hard time. When she was 18 months old, they returned her to her breeder, who started looking for a new home for her.

She eventually ended up with me. Thanks to her age, we got a discount; she cost about 50 percent of what a puppy would have cost.

Not everyone is so lucky; finding a wonderful dog usually costs a premium. Although the Samoyed price can vary based on your location, in general, Samoyed puppies cost between $1,200 and $2,500.

Why the Samoyed price is so high

You might think that price tag is ridiculous, but it’s actually the typical range for purebred, well-bred dogs. That doesn’t mean breeders are raking it in; most of the time, reputable breeders are lucky to break even. They spend a fortune on genetic tests, health exams, and showing to maintain and improve the breed. The cost of a puppy simply offsets their expenses.

Keep in mind that spending more now can save you years of headaches and pain later. A well bred Samoyed from a good breeder is less likely to have serious health issues than other dogs, and will have a long and happy life.

Find a Samoyed puppy
