SE's hips & elbows for OFA $260 plus the OFA fee, her crop (paid by breeder) $600.00, Testing PDK4 from North Carolina $110.00, Thyroid and eye for OfA $90.00 plus OFA fee, Electrocardiogram $180.00 plus OFA fee, 1st Holter fee $100.00 and OFA fee) 2nd and 3rd Holters $60.00 (I used our club holter) and 3 exams by cardiologist at CSU $300.00. I didn't have her vwd test done, breeder did. These are minimum amount of tests that I would expect on a potential puppy. I just am informing you of tests that need to be done on sire and dam before they are bred. Plus some kind of working titles and trust me training isn't cheap, neither is dog showing. Confirmation or Obedience. Just say one litter of 7 puppies times all of this. I can't afford to raise puppies. Nor do I want to. I benefit from other people's knowledge that know way more than I do. All I want is a dog that will live long enough to accomplish higher performance obedience levels. It hurts to invest so much into a dog and have them not live long enough to acquire these titles. Some of the breeders on this forum have been in the business for decades. My costs for some of these tests were less as I work at vet's clinic, but these are the fees that would be charged to the public. Puppies, nah. Not for me.
