The price of any purebred puppy will vary quite a lot depending on quality of the lines, health testing (hips, eyes, other genetic issues in the breed). A well bred Aussie pup may be $600-$1500 for a pet and twice that for a show potential puppy. Like anything, it is good to find a knowledgable breeder even if you only want a puppy for a pet. A good breeder will screen their adult dogs for the genetic conditions in the breed and that will reduce the risk your puppy will inherit those. They will also be able to answer any questions about the breed and the bloodlines, and be a good support system throughout the life of the dog.
