12. Bernese Mountain Dog
The Bernese mountain dog is a fluffy, friendly canid costing between $750 and $1,500. Its beautiful silky coat is a pleasant sight, but also a major expense.
One session for grooming the dog’s long hair can cost up to $90, not to mention the price of dog-friendly shampoo. The Bernese mountain dog is prone to health issues that are very expensive to treat too, including elbow and hip dysplasia, aseptic meningitis, and osteochondrosis.
Owners may find themselves spending hundreds of dollars to save a dog that only lives around seven years.
