Dog Breeds (A-Z)

Getting a new dog is an exciting step for anyone! But finding one can be a challenge. Click on the “Find One” links below to learn about the best and fastest ways to find a puppy to buy or a dog to adopt near you.

As you prepare to welcome a pet into your home, budgeting should be on your to-do list. In fact, most families underestimate the cost of buying or adopting and raising a dog, and personal finance is a major reason why people abandon their pet. Did you know that the total cost of ownership can be between a few thousands to more than two hundred thousand dollars over the course of a dog’s lifetime?

Click on the “Cost” links below to see the cost of each breed and find all the information as to how much the different expenses will be: the dog or puppy itself, supplies, training, medical fees, grooming, food as well as additional services such as pet insurance, dog walking, dog boarding and more. For each breed, we delve into these different costs, offer professional opinions from veterinarians, a dog trainer, a groomer, as well as a dog walker, and share tips on saving as you raise your furry friend.

You will also find information about yearly and monthly expenses as well as the total cost of ownership. Finally, our team has designed cost calculators that will give you an accurate estimate of how much it would really cost to have a dog, depending on your situation, needs, and habits.
