Review how much Samoyed puppies for sale sell for below.

The current median price for all Samoyeds sold is $1,600.00. This is the price you can expect to budget for a Samoyed with papers but without breeding rights nor show quality. Expect to pay less for a puppy without papers, however, we do not recommend buying a puppy without papers.

Annual cost of owning a Samoyed puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Samoyeds true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

We currently have 3 cats and are thinking about getting a Samoyed puppy. We're rarely gone more than 4 hours at a time, but don't want the dog to be bored and destructive when we're gone. Wondering if two dogs would be better, but also worried it might be overwhelming to have 2 Samoyed puppies.

Puppies are a ton of work, there is socialization, training, bonding, ect. Having more than one puppy at the same time puts not only an extra stress on the family, but there are some behavioral problems that the puppies will experience if not worked with correctly. Puppies learn as a pack in their litter what they can and can not do with each other with play, food, resting, ect. When it is time for a puppy to bond with his/her new owner or family; the puppy learns by interacting with them as a new pack. If you get 2 puppies, the puppy has no reason to bond with a new pack because they have their brother or sister from their old pack. This in turn keeps both puppies from interacting, bonding and learning the family dynamic in their new pack. It is very difficult and hard on the puppy's grow up this way as separation anxiety, possession aggression, territorial aggression, resource guarding, and other negative behaviors tend to flair up and become a problem very quickly in one or both puppies. Since you are rarely gone more than 4 hours at a time, one puppy is going to do just fine. He/She needs to learn how to be on their own and that you and your family will return. This is a healthy and good environment for a puppy. Work on crate training just as soon as he/she comes home and remember, a tired dog is a good dog. Set your puppy up for success by exercising him/her before you leave and give him/her something positive to chew on while you are gone so he/she is not destructive. Your puppy will chew for a little while on the good toy/chew item and then fall asleep until you come home. This will associate a positive reaction for when you leave, so your dog takes his/her alone time as time to rest and be calm while waiting for you to come home.

How do you know that a breeder is legitimate and not a scam artist? Are these breeders all verified? I'm nervous to send a deposit.

If they don't give you a location- they have things on their website that say click here for payment or try to get you to pay online. Also, for whatever dog you're looking for, look up pictures of that dog, if someones website has a picture you've seen don't trust them. This is why it's best to see the breeder face to face.

There are many ways to figure out if a breeder is legitimate or not. Your gut will be one of them. Make sure that their dogs registration numbers match with the actual registration company they are registered with. Ask for previous puppy owners names and numbers; contact them and ask about their experiences and their dogs now. Ask for their vet information and call, make sure their dogs are healthy and that they regularly bring their dogs and puppies to the vet. Get a recite for everything, including a deposit and a written contract with both signatures on it.

How much do Samoyed puppies cost on average? I am interested in the breed but am not sure what the average price should be.

The average price of a Samoyed puppy is between $1000.00 - $1500.00; but that does not mean that a puppy can not cost less or more. Breeders price their puppy's compared to what other breeders in their area price at, the pedigree of the puppy (ie: if the dam and sire are champions or not), if the puppy can be registered, if the puppy is a pet or has breeding rights, and what testing has been done on the dam and sire to off-set the cost of creating the litter in the first place.

At about a year and a half, your dog should be fully grown. It takes about a year for your dog to mature in height and then another six months to mature in muscle.
