A Newfoundland dog costs $600 to $3,000. The price varies depending on the breeder and pedigree.
If you’re looking to adopt a Newfoundland, they cost between $300 and $500. The cost of adoption includes the following services: Spay or neuter, putting a microchip in your dog, and vaccines for Bordetella, DA2PPV, and rabies. A search for a local adoption agency provided these prices:
- Puppies: under 6 months old $325-$450
- Adolescent: 6 to 11 months $275-$425
- Adult: 1+ years $225-$425
- Senior: $150-$250
However, those prices are just the initial cost of buying a Newfoundland dog.
Food costs for Newfoundlands are also higher than average due to their large size (around 100 to 150 pounds depending on the sex). You should feed your Newfoundland 4 to 5 cups of high quality food twice a day, which on average will cost $425 a year. Treats for your Newfoundland will average about $345 a year.
Grooming a Newfoundland dog is also more time consuming and will cost more if taken to a professional groomer. An average trip to the groomer will cost about $100. Newfoundland dogs shed heavily twice a year, so you might want to take them to a professional groomer when they are shedding their winter and summer coats.
Because Newfoundland dogs are so big, visits to the vet will cost more. Newfoundlands require bigger doses of shots, and often have health issues common in large dogs like elbow and hip dysplasia, which are very costly to treat.
