What Goes Into Our Pricing?
I understand that pricing is always a consideration when purchasing a new puppy.
Let me just start off by saying, you get what you pay for. Edenbright Brittanys puts time, money and effort into raising quality, healthy and well adjusted puppies. As such, we do add on these expenses in our pricing.
Our puppies are $1000.00. Deposit is $100.00 and goes toward the principle amount.
I breed for good health and temperament first and then good looks. All of my dogs are the same price; rarely do I discount my dogs, unless you are purchasing multiple Brittanys from me. I am in this business for the long term, not just for today. What I charge for my dogs enables me to take care of them properly.
All of our puppies are AKC registered, tails docked and dew claws removed, have had all vet recommended inoculations for their age at the time of sale, vet checked and come with a two year written good health guarantee. All puppy deposits are non-refundable. Deposits may be transferred between litters for your convenience. I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you about your upcoming Edenbright Brittany purchase. Call or contact us today!
I ask that you please read the following information before you e-mail or call me. Please allow me to educate you on the price of raising quality puppies.
Whether you buy one of my puppies or someone else’s, you should always ask yourself the following questions:
- Have the puppies been vaccinated by a vet or by the breeder?
- Have the puppies ever seen a vet?
- Are there several generations of health tested dogs in the puppy’s pedigree?
- Do the puppies come from dogs of proven temperaments?
- Does the breeder supply you with a health guarantee?
If not, move on. While Brittanys are a very healthy breed and suffer from few inherited health problems, other overbred, popular dog breeds are prone to severe genetic diseases and behavioral issues that present themselves fairly quickly. You will be able to get a puppy for less money, but is it really worth it if your puppy dies at age 3 or 4 or has hip dysplasia and you end up having surgery on your dog before they are even 2 years old? At the end of the day what have you really saved?
Any breeder that refuses to show pedigrees, health certificates or offer a health guarantee is not to be trusted. Have the breeder show you the certifications, or better yet look them up yourself. No reputable breeder will be upset to show you the certifications.
Next, remember a good breeder will be there for you for the lifetime of your puppy not just at the time of sale. So ask yourself:
- Do you like the breeder?
- Is the breeder willing to help you with house training, finding good food and suggestions on a vet?
- Does this feel right? Your gut feeling is always important.
If you don’t have a good feeling about the Breeder move on. You are smart and your instincts are good!
Here are some RED FLAGS that you should be aware of when talking to breeders:
- They will not let you see their facility.
- They want to meet you some where other than where their dogs are housed.
- They will not tell you how many dogs they own.
- The dogs are not American Kennel Club registered.
- They ask for cash as the only payment option.
- They do not have a written guarantee.
All of these things are very important and should not be compromised!
