There is no single usual cost for an English Springer Spaniel puppy; too many variables affect the price. As of 2015, some breeders ask for $1200 to $1800 for a well-cared for puppy, depending on bloodline and markings, while lists Springer puppies for as little as $700.

Not only does the reputation and location of the breeder chosen affect costs, the dog's origins, sex and parents' titles all have an impact. A Springer puppy from a shelter may be free and still be perfectly suitable as a loving family pet, while a dog bred with the right recorded bloodlines for the show ring is likely to cost a lot of money. Springers who are bred from less stocky parents for hunting purposes are likely to cost less, but these dogs are not able to compete in the ring.
