Candy: Leonberger puppies price?
I'm getting a dog very soon, and I have fallen in love with Leonbergers. I do not mind the size, and I know they can be really helpful. I have the time and the money to keep it healthy, I just need to know how much the puppies generally cost. Also, any special things just for that breed?

I don't see many ads on selling Leonberger puppies but the usual price is about $1000 for pet quality and between $2000-3000 for champion bloodlines.

My aunt has had a couple of Leonberger dogs. They are very expensive and neither one of hers lived very long. One had multiple behavioral problems. My aunt and uncle live in London and every time we took it to the park it tried to bite someone. Once, she nipped me (we were playing) and it broke the skin. I was bleeding a little and she started drooling and kept wanting to lick my finger. Scary...
But my aunt loved them...

The current price for a well-bred puppy from a Leonberger Club of America breeder is around $2500.
Answer by Mod
The average cost of this breed is around $1,000 to $2,000. This cost includes the purchase price and the expenses that come up during their lifetime such as food, veterinary care, and training.
The adoption costs are usually minimal if you get a Leonberger from a shelter because most shelters waive these fees like they waive the adoption fee. However, if you want to adopt from a breeder or purchase from an individual there will be extra charges for shipping and vetting.

Leonbergers from a reputable breeder (check the Leonberger Club of America website for a list) will run you about $2000 – even for "pet quality". Breeders who are not registered with the LCA are not held to the same standard and can/will breed dogs with significant health issues. Polyneuropathy, hip dysplasia… These are screened by LCA breeders and are not allowed to be bred.
Cardinalboy97 indicated multiple behavioral problems in a Leo he knew. Any dog will have problems if they are not socialized enough as puppies and that is especially true for any dog that will be 100+ pounds before they are a year old. I have never met a Leo with a "behavioral problem" – unless you consider being underfoot one.
These are not dogs to leave alone for long periods of time or throw in the backyard to live. I have had many dogs – mainly mixed breed rescues (*love*). We have had 2 Leonbergers – currently, we have a 5-month-old 70-pound ball of endless energy bouncing through our home. Training is imperative!! I cannot stress this enough. As soon as possible, get him into a class.
Leos are hard to come by as the reputable breeders are limited in their breeding frequency and the demand is so high for Leo pups.
Enjoy your new puppy!

The Leonberger is Brave. Intelligent. Very gentle Very affectionate. Open and warm. A sociable dog but makes an imposing Guard dog because of its size and Bark but it is unlikely to bite a stranger. If it has any faults it is that it becomes very exuberant with his demonstrations of affection. They can be nonchalant and 'stay at home. We tried them for police work but they did not have the necessary drive required.
I should warn you that there is no question that this dog can be shut up in a flat. It's fresh air and wide-open spaces dog. It is clumsy and requires long walks. It has a massive appetite. It doesn't like the heat very much and must be brushed regularly. They are quite high maintenance and do not take to kennels very readily.
They only live to about ten years
I wish you well in your choice of Dog... Enjoy
