    Ours is between £200 and about £400 I think. I've never had to pay a stud fee as I've either used my own studs or I can use one of my breeders studs and unless they like a pup out of the litter it doesn't cost me anything.

    As Sparkle said, the chihuahua stud fee is generally £150-350, but most seem to be around £200 for a top champion stud. Seems very low considering the price of pups...!

    Pugs are crazy at the moment, stud fees are around £1000 for a proven champion, and you'd expect to pay £700 or thereabouts for a well bred dog that has had decent results, but not a champion. Puppy prices range from about £800-1200.

    Havent had a labrador litter in a few years but I think we paid £400 for the last stud and asked £600 for the pups.

    Not sure what basenji stud fees are, but puppies are about £600-800.

    Pomeranians are generally around £150-£300, small litter size means charging the price of a pup would probably be a bit ridiculous; a decent pup would cost around £650-£1000, the upper region being show quality dog or show/brood/pet bitch. Bitches are like hen's teeth, responsible breeders will only give up quality bitches to people who prove their loyalty to the breed.

    In my breed, the price of a good stud dog is the price of a correctly marked puppy.

    BUT - I have a breed that has good size litters 8 - 10 pups is common. So a stud fee is around 1/8 value of the litter. So a stud fee of £200 for a breed which only has 3 pups which sell at about £1200 is about 1/6 the value of the litter - not such a huge difference as might first appear.

    In Tollers stud fee is the same as puppies, £800 - £900.

    and mismarked puppies are usually the same price as those with classic markings.

    Avarage around £500/£600 for a stud. Although we know decent people that charge less than that and them that charge more.

    Avarge price of pups varies a huge deal considering the hairless and coated pups. Hairless anything from £500 to £1000 (sometimes over!) and coated avarage £300/£600 - the prices really do depend on the breeder, as you can see they vary a great deal..even though I would class alot ethical, some are very different with their prices.

    Lab stud fees range from £300 to around £500, I charge £350 - and paid £450 for my last stud dog.

    Puppy prices range from £450 to around £700 (it was £650 until recently, but seems to have risen suddenly) - I sell mine for £550.

    I have heard (on the grapevine but can't verify it) of stud fees as high as £800 on the top end working - and of pups selling for around £1K on the show-side (and yes, I have seen ads at that price ).

    When you look around at the prices dogs are sold at, there is little correlation between ring success and price - I know of Labs from two SH CH parents with all the health tests selling for £500.

    Chihuahua and what jess said lol

    smooth studs are apparently higher priced than longs but idk how true that is! I think £200 is average for a decent long

    Pups seem to be increasing in price too

    Oh, i didnt realise longs and smooths were different. TBH, i've not really looked into stud prices too much, just asked around at what other people charge when we were considering letting Logan be used at stud.

    Have seen puppy farm bred (or, even better, unregistered!!) chi's advertised at stud locally for £500+ :lol: They obviously havent researched the price for a stud :rolleyes:

    Puppy prices seem to be going through the roof at the moment. Maybe I should stick Evie on Ebay :D
