The older the dog, the more training and work, the more expensive it is going to be. Also finding a dog that has *truly* been home-raised and is now for sale, with training, and doesn't have some issue/reason it is for sale will be more rare, and probably pricey. You may have better luck buying a puppy and then paying someone else do the raising and training if that's what you want. Good WGSL puppies are typically $2k to $2500+. If it's a good dog, price *should* go up with age/training (if the price is less, there may be a reason like the dog was returned to the breeder for some reason, the dog ended up with a bad hip or bad elbow).
