We did BYB with our first two, papers but no clearances and paid 550. Our new puppy we paid 1000, but came from a local breeder who had all clearances on both parents. Unfortunately I live in Amish puppy mill territory so puppies of any breed tend to go cheap.

I still have not brought my puppy home but I have not found any breeder I'd get a dog from that charges less than $1200. I've looked at a few that are $2000-$2200 (mid-Atlantic and northeast), so I'd say geographic location definitely plays a part!

I paid $800.00 for my first puppy. She was 4 months old. $650.00 for the current puppy. I got her at 8 weeks old. She is half red golden, half English crème. I live in New York. I've seen other ones advertised up to $2000.00

My latest was $1,700 (in 2011). Worth every single penny! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Murphy was $1200, I live in Sterling, VA and we got our boy in Poolesville, MD. Definitely seems there are geographical pricing trends. Our breeder was a sudo BYB but there were clearances. We love our Murphy (who'll be a big 1 year old boy on Sunday!).
