    I used "Mutt" as a term of endearment for my finely tuned field bred labs, that were now all of a sudden... Interesting to the departing spouse

    Wait a minute... Seems I was the one who had to "depart"!

    Pedigree and any health clearances done would effect the price. Also the more the dog is trained to do the more you can ask for.

    Bought this mix at 15 months old and trained as you are talking about.
    Then spayed her the following week. Good meat dog.

    I have done quite a few speculation pups for sale as family/hunting/blood trailing dogs.I generally use the formula of the puppy ,plus the number on months of training. It averages out to 5-7 K for a fully finished retriever. If it is my litter,I may do the free puppy with a training contract. Hope this helps.

    Dear Lord,
    Now I lay me down to sleep. Pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, please don't let my wife sell my guns for what I told her they cost!
    Amen

    Too much depends on the dog.
    Sold a yellow a few years ago threw double T for 2k was going to be a good hunting dog maybe with a lot of time a HT dog.
    His liter mate went for over 10k
    So really no way to answer your question, other then what some one is willing to pay for the dog, hunters will pay the least, HT will pay more
    and FT will pay the most.
    Like said above look to see what others are charging and price the same. I know a guy who got his JR and said he would not sell the dog for 10k
    fine for him having a 4 year old JR dog, but no one would pay that for that dog.
    good luck
