Vizsla Puppies For Sale UK

Cost

There has been a lot of talk on social media regarding costs of puppies of any breed.
They have increased significantly since Covid 19
Prior to Covid the average cost of a well bred Vizsla puppy purchased as a pet was £1400-£1800
Prices now seem to range from £2000-£4000 price doesn't always reflect quality so please don't presume if you pay the top price your getting the best pup.

Equally why would you expect a breeder who has done all the required health tests, excelled at rearing pups and who is breeding from top pedigree lineage to sell you a puppy for half the price of the pups from unregistered/un health tested pet dogs on the free add pages ?

Some possible reasons given for price increases are -

  • Vets fees are often no longer routine  so have increased
  • Dog food has gone up.
  • Insurance costs have increased.
  • Costs of PPE 
  • Costs ongoing to care for the dogs despite breeders not breeding/earning a living during lockdown periods.
  • Additional time requirements to safely see owners while following a sensible Covid prevention policy means an increased work had for a breeder.
  • Supply and demand there are currently more puppy buyers than puppies
  • Breeders fears that puppies can be resold if to cheap it has happened on occasion despite contracts and proper home vetting.

These are are all valid reason however they don't equate to a 100% price increase as seen in some cases.

I would encourage people not to be fixated on cost and think more about what they are buying, things such as breeder/purchaser relationship, health, temperament, conformation and standard of rearing are far more important.

​You should set yourself a budget and stick within it, if current costs are too high then consider adopting a rescue or waiting a couple of years to see if they reduce after Covid and lifestyles return to some sort of normal.

What ever you do do not compromise on quality , ethics or health to get a cheaper dog.

Ensure you have receipts for deposits paid that document what you are paying and what you expect to receive there have been many cases where purchases have paid deposits only to be told the over all cost has been increased.
