Average amount spent to buy a dog in Belgium 2019, by place of purchase

How much does a dog cost? In Belgium, the average spending related to purchasing a dog reached 535 euros in 2019. Yet the amount depends on the place you plan to buy your future dog.

On average, Belgians spend 218 euros for a rescue dog, making shelters the cheapest places. Getting a dog from a breeder, on the other hand, could cost three times that price and reach up to 712 euros.

Meanwhile, pet stores or individuals each have a price point lower than the 535 euros benchmark. With a price point of 518 euros, purchasing a dog from a pet store is less pricey, but not as cheap as getting a dog from an individual, where you could expect to pay around 475 euros.

In conclusion, when it comes to buying a dog in Belgium, shelters are the cheapest option and breeders the priciest option. Whilst pet stores and individuals offer more middle ground prices.
