Tammy VanDeusen lives in Muncie, IN. She always had dogs growing up and started her journey with training by showing in the dog obedience division of 4H at eleven years old. In her 20’s, she was able to purchase a dog of her own and she began competing in obedience through AKC and UKC earning elite titles with multiple dogs including CDX. She also got her start in dog therapy with many dogs titling them as therapy dogs and working in schools, libraries and nursing homes. Meanwhile, she developed a heart for fostering rescue dogs and working with sheltie rescue. She prided herself in fostering dogs with many behavior problems, training them in order to help them find their forever homes. Her competition roots continued through competing in obedience and agility over the next ten years. She even began teaching others in obedience and agility. During this time, she made the decision to become a veterinary technician. While working as a vet tech, she entered the herding world with competing, teaching private lessons, and judging through AHBA. She now holds multiple herding seminars during the year all over the United States. She continued her passion for teaching others by teaching puppy classes at a vet clinic.
Tammy joined the Majestic Manor Goldens family in 2016 as one of the founding trainers for the program. During her time at MMG she has earned, and continues to earn, many titles on our personal dogs including CGC and TDI. She has also put CGC titles on some older puppies that went to our forever families. She continues to attend educational seminars every year to increase her level of training. We, just like our puppies, are never done learning.
