Aready used the search and searched the web and could not find what I'm looking for.

What would you pay / sell a 5 year old AKC Master Hunter (Qualified to run the '12 Master Nationals), Qualified All Age Chocolate Male, CGC with all health clearances, proven stud, that was trained by a FT Pro to run ametuer setups and could go back to Ft's with the right person and go straight to the Master Nationals! Also can do HRC and be a HRCH easily, has Seasoned pass and has 2 Dockdog 1st place finishes and a 2nd, his first ever attempts :)

Depends EIC/CMN clear? A clear male would be worth more because you are more likely to recover your costs through breedings. (reality ..although it sucks)

and pedigree a NFC x FC is worth more than a dog by MH x SR.

I voted 8-9 but it really depends on the clearances and the pedigree....price could go up OR down depending

Love all the big numbers, but I guess this happens without advertisement, because you don't see these amounts regularly in the classified sections.

I think how much money we put into them to get to that point versus a "price" to sell such a dog are 2 different things. Probably put more $$$ into them than could be sold for, my guess.

That said, what $$$$ we put into them they pay back 100X though not with money.

Wow the numbers in the poll are surprising to me..

I had no idea that a non FC would pull that kind of money..

I agree with Bridget. We would talk at 8 or 9 but the pedigree and caliber of the dog would be big factors.

At 5 years old, you could ask $6k or so. If the dog is closer to 6 yrs old, its gonna be less. If the dog is an EIC/CNM carrier, or doesn't have hip/elbow/eye clearances the price is gonna go down. With no AA pts, you are not likely to get any FTers interested. Most people would look at this dog and say half its working life is over, and as a "stud dog" you gotta run them to get stud fees. If you aren't really interested in selling the dog, then a $7k price or higher would be appropriate.

With the market right now 6-7K for a male at that level, stud wise; add some more for color, lack of FT titled coco's (QAA male could make up fees, with good pedigree), add some more for clear. Female significantly more.

Depends, few years younger worth a lot more. If he can run AA set ups I would say 5-7K range. Color would help but pedigree would be a determining factor for me.

2cents Regards,

I agree with WRL. Factor in the carrier status, pedigree, and mouth and noise issues, it would have to be someone experienced that wanted a dog to run.

Thanks for all the replys!

More Info: Turned 5 in April.
OFA Hips: Good, OFA Elbows: Normal, CERF NORMAL, PENNHIP: GOOD, CNM: CLEAR, EIC: CARRIER

Sire: Jazztimes Casey Of Fallston MH
(AFC Chugach Hills Jazzs Rascal X Milwaukee's Jezzabelle SH)

Dam: Kelbar's Cuda Blue Terror MH
(FC AFC Cuda's Blue Ryder MH X Dusty River WayDGoo Millertyme MH)

In 6 months he has passed 10 of 12 tests (his last Master he failed because in the second series he cut around his eye (NOT EYE BALL) and had to have stiches)

Had allot of interest at a HIGHER price.

ALSO, people who thought the poll prices are too high or chosen OTHER price, throw a price out there :)

Have you ever wondered how much a top Derby dog sells for? It isn't $10,000 nor $20,000 -- nor $30,000. It has been higher.

For the above dog, $5k. If you have someone ACTUALLY interested in writing a check for more, I'd have them write it right then and there.

The poll is a bit unclear as to whether it is asking what one would EXPECT to pay for such an animal or what one would be WILLING to pay. Personally as a hobbyist I have no interest in owning a 5yr old dog trained by someone else, no matter what the price, but as an investment, I can see where one might EXPECT to pay a pretty hefty price for such a fine dog.

Too cheap

From both sides of the street.
If I were selling, I would start at least in the $20 k range. Chocolate, FY potential, a very serious HT'er at the very least, potential stud. Lots of plusses for the potential buyer to consider. Until a couple years ago, I was routinely selling high end finished gun dogs for more than what some have said this dog is worth.

If I were a buyer, interested in a turn key dog, if I could get him for $10K, how quick can I write the check? I would be thinking that I might get a little lucky and get some FT placements, maybe a title. He might just be entering his prime. At the very leats a MNH. Might even look at SRS where there is cash prizes.

Glad I am not looking now. It would cost me some $$$$$$$$.

Being an EIC carrier as a male will hurt the price, as Frank has already said. His value as a stud will be greatly reduced.

Thanks for all the replys..I like Mike Perrys the best..LOL

I have had him for 7 months and done what his previous owners/trainers could not do, since he got his MH last month he has been studed twice @ $850 each to people's dogs that have seen him run at tests, and I have had 1 litter that just went home last week off my SH female and have a litter of 9- 1 week old chocolates on the ground now with JH female, 7 were sold by the time they were 5 days old. So at $1700 in stud fee's in one month and two litters making over 12K, the potential is there to make $$$, even though he is a carrier.

To make a long story short, I had a deposit for him at allot more than my poll, but I talked further with the person and others and there real plan was for him was to be a puppy maker (Labs, Labradoodles ect) and to live in a kennel 24/7, so the check was ripped up, makes me sick thinking about it, I have also turned down allot of others also (non competition homes).

To appreciate this boy you have to see him run, BTW his previous FT trainer was Randy Bohn of Rammin Retrievers.

***The only reason he is forsale is because I can not do him justice, compaining him every weekend needed to get his name out***

This poll / post was to see what people would sell/buy a dog of this calibur for, all my comments are to answer questions about health clearance, pedigree, trainers, potential $$ etc;
