The UK’s most expensive breeds of dog have been revealed and the most in-demand will set you back thousands.
In 2020, the average price of a puppy in the UK more than doubled compared to the previous year, with an average pup costing £1,875.
And the most popular breeds could put a serious strain on your wallet with costs of almost £3,000 for the most sought after dogs, according to the experts from Pets4Homes.
They said: “The global pandemic has led to an imbalance between supply and demand for pets and prospective owners are more willing than ever to pay out large sums to secure their desired pet.
“Many breeders and sellers have recognised this and as such we’ve seen prices follow a similar trend with significant price hikes across the most popular dog breeds”.
The breed that has seen the biggest price increase is the Cocker Spaniel. A puppy will now set you back £2,230, a 207% increase on the average price for the breed in 2019.
