    For a responsibly bred puppy, from health tested parents, that sounds reasonable.

    You could get a cheaper pup, but corners will have been cut, and you could run into health problems down a line.

    If it's parents are health tested etc then why not? I'm not sure of the prices they go for but doesn't seem much to me :confused:

    I didnt realise the breed was that expensive, but i always think if you are paying for the peace of mind as far as you can of having a pup from good breeding, healthy pup then its worth it and potentially save you money in the long run, and as we know within no time of having them they are worth a million£££££££££££££'s:):)

    Yes I would think that was about right too. I have seen Bichons advertised for £750 if they are kennel club registered etc.

    IMO That is about the right price for a very well bred, healthy Pup. Just make sure it is all of these things though as soooo many people are just breeding for money and asking outragous prices with a lot of BULL story added for effect
