Noticed that we had a page from 2005 on the same subject, but wanting to rejuvenate the topic.
We are in the market for a pup, and the breeder we are putting a deposit down with charges $1200.

What about everyone else?

Our soon to be puppy- (7 weeks until we get her!) is $1000. which is a really good price since they come with full AKC registration and are a very nice deep dark red coloring! We are getting from Windmill Farms Golden Retrievers in Utah

Ripley cost us 1200$ in 2011 with full CKC registration.1200 is the norm in the Vancouver area from what I found with my research if you wanted a well bred dog. Worth every penny!

Steve was $1000 in 2009, Fuzzy was $1200 in 2012 (then an additional $900 in vet bills 6 days later, so in a way he was a whopping $2100:-0!). At least he was a very cute puppy...

I'm the odd one out at this point. >> Myles was 350 when I bought him. Most goldens in my area tend to go for between 300-500, unless you are going with specific breeders. However, for my next one I know that I'm looking at spending more like 1200-1500 likely. I have my eye on a few kennels here in Idaho. :)

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

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!). :)
