The average price of a Polish Lowland Sheepdog puppy is between $1250.00 - $1700.00 per puppy. Price will depend on the pedigree of the puppy, how much work the breeder has put into the litter and where the breeder lives. Look for responsible, reputable and qualified breeders on the AKC, CKC, or UKC website. Breeder's found there will be able to tell you what they sell their puppies for.

Actually that pricing listed above is not what I found. First if you can find a breeder you are lucky, which I did after 3 months of calling and searching. The average price between the 4 breeders I talked to in the U.S.A. is $2200 - $2500.00.

I was just quoted $2,500 with no restrictions but I got one from one of the best breeders about 7 years ago for $1,500 and he is amazing. I don't work him but he is the smartest dog I have ever seen. I am waiting and willing to pay the $2,500. I like the idea that they are expensive as it will keep the breed intact.
