It all depends, they eat the same as a normal large dog. The price will vary depending on what kind of food you use to feed them. I take mine to be groomed and clipped usually every 4 months or so, it costs around £50 each time.
They can be expensive, you can try looking into a shelter in your area as many are given up. I got mine from a breeder for £800.
