From a thorough search across breeder websites listed on different marketplaces, the average cost of a Beagle is around $1,273.
This may not be considered expensive when compared to other pricier breeds with an average price of $3,500, but it’s still a high price compared to breeds that sell for $500 on average.
How much you part with to get a Beagle will depend on factors such as location, breeder, age, sex, color and markings, pedigree, and purity of the breed.
You may also pay more for a Beagle with breeding rights than one without.
For example, one of the breeders sold a Beagle with breeding rights for $2,100 and $1,800 for one without.
Despite these costs, owning a Beagle is worth the price. Here’s why.
Beagles Are Excellent Pets
The Beagle’s friendly, affectionate, loyal, and happy-go-lucky personality makes this dog breed a perfect family pet. Also, the Beagle’s naturally pleading eyes and floppy ears make it cute, not to mention that it is great with children.
The only disadvantage with owning Beagles is you have to watch them so they don’t always follow their nose. They can also be vocal and stubborn, but that’s easily solved with early proper training.
Beagles Are Low Maintenance
The National Beagle Club of America presents the Beagle as a low maintenance breed. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be saved from the obvious owning costs that you should add to the buying cost.
