Can we possibly revisit the pricing structure for purchasing source dogs? Source dogs do not add an advantage to the game. I would love to see a flat price of $300 or similar for starters.

$2k for a starter is blah. lol.

Jeff - any feedback on this possibility?

Yes and no.

Yes, there should be a price threshold that is reasonable like $300.

No, that there should remain cheap options for low entry/participation breeds like there is now.

This! I'm using starters a fair bit because heads in Shar-Peis are all so low so I'm injecting some nice starters with 20 for their heads into my lines, to even them out a bit.

I'm paying $20 for them, if it was $300 I doubt it would be sustainable for me to do what I'm doing currently laugh :D

I just bought some starters and paid between £2k to over £5k

They are a complete gamble & all that I purchased are only for colour & will take generations to get back to anything showable.

Yes it’s a project, but a project more may take part in if it wasn’t for the massive cost outlay.

Yes I agree, it's crazy that we have to pay thousands of dollars for starters and they are always terrible. Many breeds are so low on numbers, I'm sure if starters were max $2/300 then endangered breeds would be revived and it might attract more players to stay.

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
