Von Tighe Haus (CKC Registered) is located on 25 acres near Ottawa, Ontario (south of Kemptville) where we breed West German Working Line German Shepherd Dogs.
As a GSD enthusiast, I spent over 15 years in the breed before breeding my first litter. The following is a list of my qualifications in the breed, dogs and the sport of Schutzhund (IPO/IGP):
Prior to 2022, my exposure to dog ownership revolved solely around a single breed: the German Shepherd Dog. Since purchasing my first GSD, Tighe (pronounced "Tie"), in 1999, my comprehension of the breed has significantly expanded. With each passing year, my expectations for the breed have grown, yet I've found myself increasingly disheartened by what many breeders present as a well-bred German Shepherd Dog. My dedication to adhering to the SV breeding system has only strengthened over time, as has my vehement stance against backyard breeding and other irresponsible breeding practices. These convictions stem from my unwavering commitment to preserving the integrity of this cherished breed that holds a special place in my heart.
I breed for myself, and I want a puppy that is bred to the highest possible standards
