Testing for LTV is a relatively new thing, even here in the US. I bet that we will see it become as common as HD or ED testing in the years to come as its just as serious if not more so. I believe its now included in SV testing as its become such a big issue for the breed. Not something to be overlooked.

heidi, I did read your original post several times before I posted and it was confusing, at least for me on the cost.
anyway, I've been there and understand. here's hoping that your new addition is everything you hope for. and I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Similarly $5,000 for 8 months of boarding is just silly. I personally would never do this anyway, I don't like other people putting foundations on my puppies.
Are there no decent breeders of a dog breed you like in NZ? I'll go so far as to say the breeder of this puppy isn't even a very good one, if they are willing to breed a bitch with a severe health fault. It is an absolute pet peeve of mine and there is no excuse for it. You might pay $20K (with a BANK LOAN!!!! We haven't even touched on this but OMG don't do this) for a dog that ends up euthanized at 18 months with a spinal disorder.

500€ in Germany? In Germany from 900€ approximately, in the Czech Republic the normal is from 800€ but I have seen litters from 550€ and Slovakia similar to the Czech Republic

price for puppie in Czech is something like 800 euro..depends on parents , especially if you have to travel to germany for high level sport male (very expensive) and you have only few puppies, the costs will increase for sure (1200-1500 euro)...puppies are ready to go to new homes at 7 weeks..export means minimum 3 months (5-6 weeks longer hospitality), export paperwork, vaccination, transport...many breeders like to sell puppie in Europe (its simple) more than go throught this horrible export to USA. In case you will decide to find a dog trainer to train your dog in Czech, means- hospitality, kennel, food, next multiple vaccinations, firstly you will check teeth, than x- rays, DNA check, DM testing, LÜV testing and many other healthy tests+ training..means minimum for stud dog: BH+IGP1 or ZVV1, dog show, and körung...many thing can make the trainer alone, but for protection (helper) he will have to pay for sure..+ travelling for protection training + the dog could be stud about 2 years old (firstly)...in case of ,,customised´´ puppie+ training + shippment + tax in USA..means something like 2000 USD/ puppie, 1500 USD shipment, healthy tests (all vaccinations, x- ray - HD, ED, teeth, DNA, DM, LÜV...)- 1000 USD+ training means 18 months work- it could make minimu 5000 USD or more...and I always speak only about title level 1 (IGP1, ZVV1, SVV1)..in case of IGP2, 3 or ZVV2,3 it will be for sure more...so all together the reasonable price starts on 9000-10.000 USD in that case...its more simple to buy a stud dog for ,,less´´ money or to buy older stud female, which has been mated in Europe and see her ultrasonic, with quantity of puppies she will have. Finally you can have puppies and stud female...depends on the way you choose:)...20K USD is simple said 2 times more (for stud dog- trained puppie- do not forget, what happened, if something will not go the right way- dog will miss a teeth, bad X- rays or other reasons, why the dog can´t be stud...what can breeder guarantee is, that parents are 100% healthy, but the health of the puppie will be known firstly at 13 months old puppie- x- rays could be make at 12 months old dog, all y- rays before 12 months old dog are not accepted)..deposit I will pay firstly after I see ultrasonic, that the female is mated..the price should not be high, this money would never be returned, this is used as ,,secure´´ for breeder, if you will finally dont want to buy a dog, this is for thr breeder and for his good will:). fingercross
