How much to pay for a puppy is always tricky. Variance in the prices between breeders is confusing to families - we understand this. We often get asked why are some pups on the internet are £1200 and others £5000+? However, when you dive deeper it becomes apparent that the factors which influence the cost of a puppy are usually :
We have checklists and questions which we suggest you ask your chosen breeder. These can help you know firstly, what you are buying ,and secondly, what's included. This ensures that you compare like-for-like when assessing whether your adoption cost is reasonable or if you are paying too little/too much.
Finding a healthy dog from a reputable breeder can be a challenge. If you've never had an Australian Cobberdog (or any dog for that matter), it can be difficult to work out whether a breeder's prices are reasonable or not.
Our prices are due to the amount of health screening and training we provide. As a registered Australian Cobberdog breeder, we have pure Cobberdog lines, and are known for our outstanding service. Our dogs are happy and healthy, with a gentle, playful temperament.
We are confident our prices are a reflection of all of this. In comparison to similar breeders, we're about average. There are definitely options more and less expensive out there.

We love receiving updates (we call them pupdates) from families who've adopted from us. These are often posted on our social media, but we've also gathered some on our testimonials page for you!
When paying your breeder, please be aware of the possibility that the advert is a scam. We often have families join our waiting list after being duped by a convincing scam on popular websites advertising cheaper Labradoodles. Always pay by a traceable method. Ideally, Visa Debit or similar, so you know where the money is going and to whom. It may also offer some form of protection (speak to your card provider). We only take payment by Visa Debit, bank transfer or possibly Pingit (if you prefer) into our business account.
If you are interested in adopting from us then our 8 weeks old solid coloured, pups start from £5000 (£6000 for merle/rare colours). Partly-trained pups usually start from £6500, for a 13-week-old solid colour (prices increase with age/training and also if rare/merle colouring). The majority of our pups are adopted by families who have had a puppy from us or have received a personal recommendation/referral from a happy customer. This is our preferred method of introduction for our pups.
