A puppy is a time commitment and also a financial one. We find the first year to be the most expensive and so we wanted to give you an ESTIMATE of what a puppy may cost in the first year so you can better budget.
For our example, we will use our Labradoodle price of $1800 and assume delivery by flight nanny.
After year one, the basic costs of a dog are usually around $600-900 per year.
Cost of Puppy $1800
Delivery of Puppy $400-$600
Beginning Supplies for Puppy $100-$200
Veterinary Care for Puppy $300-$500
Feeding Puppy $400-$600
Training Puppy $200-$300
Toys for Puppy $100-$200
Total ESTIMATED for first year $3300-$4200
Please remember that this is only an estimate. Your costs may be more or less.
