What Makes the Difference?

olivia1Vom Haus Torigian’s philosophy revolves around several core beliefs.

First we believe that a major component to a dog’s potential is genetic. This belief drives us to only select German Shepherds that meet or exceed the breed standard. Our German Line Sires and Dams must have exhibited excellence in their aptitude, emotional balance, willingness to work, and their social skills with both canines and humans alike. Being able to predict behavior, regardless of stress level is paramount.

Second Environment, puppies go through many different emotional developmental stages. It is as important to know what not to expose your puppy to, as to what they should be learning at any given point in their emotional development. We start almost immediately from birth exposing the puppies to human interaction. Our puppies are handled multiple times everyday by both male and female handlers. They are kept in a kennel in the house from birth. Which is why many of our puppies are kennel trained if not housebroken before they are 2 months of age.

The puppies are exposed to concrete, carpet, rocky surfaces, grass, both wet and dry on a daily basis from the time they are 3 weeks old. From 4 weeks of age they are interacting with, both male and female, fully grown, emotionally balanced, German Shepherds. Training on basic commands also begins at 4 weeks. The puppies live in a structured, quiet environment. They eat, sleep, play, and train at the same times every day. We believe this consistency provides a comfort level and reduces any anxiety for the puppies.

Finally the puppies’ social development is monitored daily. Being aware of a pup’s strengths and personality enables us to place the puppies in the proper home.

Below is a review from a family that purchased a puppy from our most recent litter:

I recently had the pleasure of acquiring a Sable German Shepherd puppy from Vom Haus Torigian, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. From the moment I contacted Michael Torigian, they were professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely passionate about their dogs. They took the time to answer all of my questions and provide valuable insights into the breed’s characteristics and care requirements. When I met the puppies, I was immediately struck by their sweetness, strong character and confidence. It was evident that they had been raised with care and attention to socialization. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Torigian maintained open communication and provided regular updates on the puppy’s progress. They also went above and beyond to ensure that the transition to my home was smooth, providing valuable advice on training, nutrition, and healthcare. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to choose Vom Haus Torigian. Not only did I receive a beautiful and healthy puppy, but I also gained a trusted resource and support system for all things related to German Shepherds. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a German Shepherd with a strong character and a sweet disposition. Their dedication to the breed and commitment to producing top-quality dogs are truly commendable.
