Avg. cost to finish a dog

Most of you know that I'm considering a show dog vs. pet dog. One thing I can't quite put my finger on is the average cost to finish him. I plan on handling myself, with the exception of his majors. Other than classes what price range am I looking at to finish him? I realize it could vary, but some sort of ballpark figure is helpful. I live in Maryland, if location even makes a difference. Exclude hotel fees, because I can get rooms for free for the most part, that and I have family just about everywhere it seems. I would only do shows in driving distance (7 hours or less ride).
I've been quoted anywhere between 2,000-10,000. Can someone narrow this range down for me some?

2 to 10 thousand is your ball park figure. It depends on too many things to give you an idea. Are you showing yourself? Are you any good? How far do you have to travel to find majors in your area? Ect...

I plan to send Didi out when she is a litle more mature. However, at almost 2 years of age I can see that she is a good bitch, loves to show, and has already proven herself in the ring. I figure sending her out at the right time, in peak condition, with one of the best handlers I can find will run me anywhere form 3-6 thousand dollars, if there are majors, if things go in my favour..

With an unknown puppy that may not even be born yet? Nope, sorry, no one can tell you what will happen with any type of certainty. I know I would never waste my time and money showing a puppy in the US unless that puppy was a spectacular puppy that could hold it's own against the big boys. I prefer to wait until a dog is more mature and really ready to compete before investing that kind of money. I live in Canada and we have puppy wins here, so puppies show for fun and practice but I don't expect them to beat mature dogs very often.

Too many variables to really say but hotels rooms cost a lot so you're saving money right off the bat by staying for free. There are a lot of shows in your area as well so you shouldn't have to travel too far unless you just want to.

Every day it is getting more and more expensive!!!!!! Costs for dog food, Handlers, Hotels, gas, Vet bills, show entries, EVERYthing will keep going up and up. There are too many chinks in our Economical Wheel, everyone wants more money for what they do, what they sell, etc., etc.,
Play at a couple of shows with your pup. When you and your breeder KNOW he is ready to go out and win........then put the BIG money into it.

I hate to say this but if you are on the fence, then you might need to pass at this time on a show prospect until you are at a place where you feel more confident. Honestly, you need to be really committed if you are doing to show as so much in life comes up as it is, you really need to be sure showing a dog in conformation is what you want to do.

I don't say this to discourage you at all, so please don't think that at all. I just want to give you more information, I am glad you are doing your research and do wish you the best! I hope you do go for it, but just make sure you are totally on board with the idea and so is your significant other if you have one since showing a dog can take a lot of time, many of your weekends and the time spent in handling classes if you are learning to owner handle, and a significant chunk of money.

A couple tips - find a breeder that is successful in your chosen venue, one you trust that can also be your mentor, find a Doberman handler (in case you need one even for singles, you never know really how you will do), find good training classes to teach you owner handle in addition to your mentor for good practice for you mainly.
I don't think realistically you can count on no hotel fees at all ever even if you stay within driving distance of 7 hours, you won't want to drive home every day of a show, especially when the dog is shown consecutive days. You have to factor that in there somewhere in the event you can't stay at a friend or relatives house for whatever reason or the hotel you stay in "for free" (how do you do this, share your secret!!!) is full.

The reasons the variables are so huge is because it depends on so many things. Entry fees for a three day one weekend show easily reach $75.00, and that is just the basic fee, doesn't involve food at the show, parking fees, handler fees, gas to get to the show, toll fees if any, hotel fees if applicable, or anything else. And be forewarned, many dog shows have GREAT vendors you will probably want to buy from stuff from sure! And you could spend all that money and not even get a point the whole weekend. Or the opposite could happen. Nothing is ever guaranteed.

Sometimes puppies don't turn out as intended, that is why they are graded as prospects. Sometimes majors are hard to come by and involve a lot of traveling. Sometimes you can't owner handle for various reasons and will have to pay a handler. Sometimes handler fees vary greatly. Sometimes you will have to buy supplies that are helpful to showing your dog, not to mention pay for handling classes if you are learning and serious about showing yourself (those classes can add up fast $ wise).

Keep in mind you will need to keep your dog in top condition physically which involves work on your part and make sure the nails are short (which could involve depending on the dog doing them 2-3 times a week every single week, dog nails grow at different rates so you never know if you will get lucky there or have to bust your butt to keep them nails short ). You will need to learn to live with an intact dog and many times it cost more to register intact dogs yearly with the city.

Reggie's easy finish was around $3500 for just handling fees, entry fees, and handler gas/expenses. I made that total more expensive by traveling to shows and entering him in the nationals. All told maybe $5500 when you figure my travel expenses.
I can't give you a good average, cause Reggie is a very nice dog, not just a "good" show prospect.
A lot is luck too. You can enter shows hoping for majors and not get them. It could take longer time-wise because of this too. If you enter shows when your dog isn't ready, you can be throwing more money away.
Any way you slice it, you need to have a decent amount saved (or bigger income than we have) to finish a dog. There's also the last possibility of trying to finish a Doberman and the dog doesn't quite cut it. Then you spend all that money and have nothing to show for it.

Not really. As many of the others have said, there are too many variables involved. The quality of your dog, your own handling skills to get those single points, your ability to get and keep the dog in good condition, the competition out there with you at the time, even the judging slates that happen to come up-these are all big factors, with some of them completely out of your control.

I've never spent $10,000 to finish a dog, but certainly know people who have spent that much (and more).

One dog cost me about $1600 to finish-she was handled by her breeder to 11 points, 1 major-showing one weekend a month, at local shows only. While not a pro handler, her breeder was competent enough to have finished a few dogs in another breed. So in this case, the handler already had basic handling skills and ring experience.

I don't think it's too realistic to think a novice handler is going to be able to spend as little as $2,000 to finish a dog. It might take them showing the dog many, many, many, many times to sharpen their skills up enough to be able to compete against pros with their dog. Some people are never able to reach the point of being able to compete with the pros-handling is a talent, and some people just don't have a shred of that talent.

Ummm.. I don't want to know!
Like everyone has said it really depends how much you travel, the dog's quality, amount of shows you enter, ect.
My boy was only handled twice, both times got majors, so that was his biggest cost. He finished in 6 Months. Biggest cost, besides the traveling cost and entry fees, didn't cost me to show the dog myself, even being a novice I singled him out. I would say we spend on average $200-$300 each weekend on gas, food and hotels. If you can travel w/ other people and split all of this it really helps.
But like everyone says there is no one answer

Lots and lots of hotel points built up over time with several different hotels.
Nails aren't a problem. I actually LOVE trimming nails. Nina's stay nice and short. Hers grow very little at a time. I do them about every week to 2 weeks. It doesn't cost more in this county to have an intact dog. Living with one (which could or could not be a problem) is something we are considering (among many other things).
Thanks everyone for all the comments so far!

Lots of variables, but no matter how you look at it- it's gonna be a LOT of G's most likely. I agree with the poster above that said if you're on the fence, then maybe you're not really ready for a show prospect. Go to some shows, try and get a feel for it. Talk to the people. See if this is something you realistically want to dedicate probably most of your free time (and extra money!). Of course, we all started out showing this way - maybe no one was ever 100% sure that dog showing was going to be something they'd really get into, but those of us that show definitely got 'bit by the show bug' - and we enjoy it

It *can* be a lot. Like others have said - it depends. I know my personal experience, we got three very expensive points, then reality hit.

Well...they were probably talking about the small handful of champion dogs who are campaigned from coast to coast for national all breed rankings. That can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year-a lot of those dogs are flown across the country to shows on private jets, etc. When the doberman, Ch. Toledobes Serenghetti (99 all breed best in show wins) was being campaigned, it was said the advertising budget alone for her exceeded $100,000/yr.

But as I said, that kind of money gets spent on very few dogs. Most dogs earn their champion titles, then are retired from the show ring. Even among dogs who continue to be campaigned after earning a champion title(called specials), the really big ticket animals make up a small percentage.

Yeah, those "specials" dogs cost the big buckaroos to campain, but plenty of dogs are shown as "specials" locally either owner handled or by a pro that has an opening that day. Some are seen at the Nationals in the BOB ring - not a cheap handling fee for that but if you only do it occasionally it is not so bad.

The cost of finishing a dog varies so much there is just no average. I tell people to plan on spending a minimum of $5000 for a good dog. More for a bitch.

I heard a rumor that Sera even had her own jet! Was a long time ago so not sure how true it was. I remember having the priviledge once of seeing her show on one of her trips to the east coast (Philadelphia Kennel Club - 1996 - one of my first dog shows) - boy was she amazing!
