Cobbers For Life is committed to the ethical breeding of beautiful and healthy dogs. In order to ensure that we can meet demand at the right time, we have a waitlist for upcoming litters.
The cost of a puppy is $5000. This includes 2 vet checks, vaccination and microchip.
Our pricing reflects our excellent quality breeding lines and our costly breeding practices, which go into producing top quality dogs.
The $1000 deposit is refundable, however we ask you to commit to the purchase so we can ensure our breeding practices match the demand.
Travel arrangements and payment for travel within Australia are made by the purchaser. We can recommend transport services. Alternatively, puppies can be picked up from Taree by the purchaser. To secure a spot on our waitlist, we require a deposit of $1000.
Before joining our waitlist and paying the deposit, we encourage you to think about the long-term financial and time commitment required to home a Cobberdog. This includes training, grooming, nutrition and health care.
We will keep customers on our waitlist and mailing list up-to-date regarding upcoming litters. We expect next litters in November or December 2023. Please understand that breeding is subject to many conditions outside of our control, including heat cycles and variation in numbers, sexes and colours of puppies.
We invest heavily in our dogs and our breeding program to ensure that the puppies we provide to our customers are of the best health and temperament. We are seeking to build our breeding program into a sustainable business so that we can continue to do this well into the future. We don’t want to be in a position where we need to cut corners to make ends meet. We recognise our customers are looking for the best companion, suited to their needs.
Listed below are just some of the costs associated with our breeding program.
It takes a significant investment to bring a prospective breeding dog from birth to whelping her first litter. Sometimes we need to face up to the tough decision to retire a dog from our breeding program if their physical qualities or temperament are not up to our high standards, even some who have not yet had a litter at all. We give dogs ample rest time between litters, with our dogs typically having zero or one litter per year. Even when litters are born, there are no guarantees, for example a litter could be 2 puppies or 10!
We hope this is helpful for you consideration and your purchasing decisions!

We now keep a waiting list. We are currently taking applications for 2023. We assess puppies and applications after puppies are born and try to match puppies with appropriate homes. Follow us on Facebook for litter updates and feel free to send us an email for more information.
