What is a well trained dog worth?

This week, the New York Times took a look at just what a well-trained dog can be worth to the right person.

From NYT

The price tag on Julia, the GSD protection dog is close to a quarter MILLION dollars.

Is she worth it?
As one of her trainers says, (value) is in the eye of the beholder. While very few of us can afford $230000 for a dog, or even the relatively paltry $30k they reference, all of us can afford to take the time to build a better bond with our dogs and get help when needed. A dog can be a companion and friend like no other and you cannot put a price tag on that kind of loyalty.
