The UK’s most expensive dog breeds for 2022 have been revealed, with the average price for a puppy now coming in at £1,382.41 — lower than the same month last year, when the average price was just over £2,000.
Research by Pets4Homes found that many owners have experienced rising purchase costs, with the top breeds selling for thousands as a result of lockdown. This serves as a good reminder that we should all be adopting animals where we can and giving a home to a dog in need.
The American Bully have seen the biggest price increase, with people now paying £2,294.27 for the breed. Meanwhile, Border Collies have been the biggest decrease in price (49%) compared with the same period last year.

“A dog is for life, not just for lockdown so it’s really important to get the right insurance in place as soon as you welcome your pet into your family,” Isabella Von Mesterhazy, head of Petplan Direct, says.
“When shopping around check the veterinary cover provided by each policy carefully as not all pet insurance is the same. This will ensure you can get your pet the best care possible in their time of need.”
