Just out of interest from comments on another thread. If people are not wanting to share I'll understand but I'd be very interested, plus I'm sure it will discourage/encourage potential breeders, if people would give a rough idea of what costs are expected. What makes some breeds more expensive to breed than others? What expense would be needed for the unexpected? Why are the prices of dogs so expensive now compared to years ago...and is this a good thing? I only see the 'cheap' side of breeding, we get a dog into the rescue in pup and aside from if there are complications the cost implication to the rescue is minimal, obviously the issue we have is how to rehome them afterwards and the after care cost (ensuring they are neutuered or providing the funds to the new owners to assist with it). But obviously other breeders don't have those costs to consider.
