I am planning to buy a beagle (pet standard), please help?

I am new to the forum. The forum looks great and informative. I am planning to buy a beagle (pet standard). The market price in Kolkata is Rs20,000 plus. As far my knowledge, beagle is a healthy breed, and avg litter size is 4 to 5 pups. My question is why this high price (compare to other popular breed)? Is this high price a temporary phenomenon and the price will dip drastically in a few years?

Beagles are great all rounder dogs. generally the price is around 18,000 for a show quality puppy. It all depends on the parents and if they are champion or not and of very good quality. Always buys after seeing both the parents and gooing some research on the breed standards etc.

Suddenly a lot of people seem to be breeding beagles so the prices should be coming down, but if you are not interested in showing then you should get a pet quality beagle, which does not mean that the dog will be bad or not have champion parents. the pet quality pup even out of champion parents should be much less.

Try to find a good breeder and not a puppy mill breeder so that the owner can advise you whether its pet quality of show quality. If the breeder is into just making money he will generally call all pups show quality.

In general I feel any good puppy even of a very popular breeds will cost you around 18K to 25K, if it is out of good quality parents. There are always pet shops etc selling pups as low as 5 K also. But its not advisable to get one from them. The best place to find breeders is to attend a dog show and meet the various breeders and their dogs. Unfortunately the show season is over now. You can also may be contact the Kolkatta kennel club secretary and get a list of good breeders in and around Kolkata.

Thanks Mr. Dinkar for your kind response.
Can I get an idea, what will the price be for a 1.5 months old beagle bitch. (Not a show standard).

Its very difficult to pin point a price, but anywhere upto 10,000 odd, I think. It is always better to take pups after they are 2 months old specially smaller breeds I feel. There is a pedigree dog placement center in Cal. which you can also contact and get a beagle through them, who needs another home. At times you can get good young dogs. I will try to get the number and send it across to you.

It would be a good idea to check out the classified ads on sunday in your local papers and call then to see. Mostly pet shops will advertise mentioning a few breeds in one ad. But you may also find dog lovers advertising for pups out of their own dogs, and that is generally a good place to also pick up pups if not interested in shows, as long as you check out the parents properly.

All the best.
