What is the Average Cost of a Guide Dog? Average Guide Dog Price

The average cost of a guide dog depends on whether the dog has been donated to the person in need or not. If not, then the cost of obtaining a trained guide dog can cost as much as $50,000. Sometimes, programs will only charge a partial fee, somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000 to $20,000. Some people opt to train their own dogs, which can cost from $5000 to $15,000 per dog. Some are able to get a dog for free if it is covered by their insurance, but food and veterinarian bills still eat up $1500 annually. Although guide dogs are not cheap, they provide an indispensable service to their caregivers.
