Borzoi puppies cost around £500 to £800 or more if coming from a reputable breeder. However, since puppy litters are limited, you will have to be patient since you will have to be on a waiting list. In 2015, there were only 120 puppies registered with the Kennel Club, and not all of those were for sale.
While you wait for your Borzoi, it is crucial that you understand the financial setbacks you might encounter in raising and taking care of this dog breed. First, you have to make sure that your Borzoi is well settled, so buying dog supplies and equipment (e.g. leash, collar, beds, bowls and more) is necessary. This may initially cost you around £200. For the food, premium quality dog food will be £60 to £80 a month considering the Borzoi is a large dog.
Pet insurance is another cost to consider. If you want the best for your Borzoi and if you can afford to spend a bit more, you can opt for a lifetime cover which costs around £50 a month. If you can't afford it, basic cover costs £25 - £30 a month. Veterinary consultations including regular health checks, initial vaccinations, boosters and neutering will set you back at least £1,000 a year.
For a rough estimate, raising a Borzoi will cost you £100- £130 a month excluding insurance and veterinary treatments and procedures not covered by insurance.
