West Coast Canine Academic Center

Welcome to West Coast Canine Academic Center

 

Here at WCCAC we provide high quality intense corse curriculum.  Our courses dive deep into each subject allowing for a more complete understanding of canines than those of shadow programs, workshops, or other programs and schools.

Our mission is to educate to a higher standard than what is available.  With self taught "trainers" on every corner and the industry on the verge of being regulated, we are ahead of the game.  We want trainers coming out of WCCAC to feel confident in the knowledge they obtain to move through any obstacles that regulations may put into practice.

Come join the WCCAC in taking Professional Dog Training to a higher standard.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR

You will be instructed by Course Developer Brandi Bryant.

(IACP), Professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, an AKC approved evaluator for the AKC Star Puppy, CGC and Advanced CGC programs, Head Training of The Hounds Grounds

Brandi has spent many years learning, practicing and honing her dog training/behavior skills.  Spending years in continued study of methods, tools, courses, workshops, and learning form the worlds most influential dog trainers.

She understood from the beginning one method was never going to work on all dogs and to only use one method was a completely unfair approach.  Specializing in behavior modification you must have an understanding of dogs on a deeper level than a one-size fits all approach.

Brandi's education reaches over Obedience, Behavior, Scent Detection, Sport, Trick, Dogmanship, Behavior Modification, Relationship Based Modification, Proper Conditioning and use of Tools, Methods of Motivation to Positive Reinforcement, and much much more.

The Hounds Grounds has been built on a Motivational Training Modality specializing in what the DOG LOVES in order to create what the owner desires.  This creates a love for work and strong work ethic in our dogs.  There are two sides in training, the most important side being the dogs!

Brandi is going to share with you her many years of knowledge and experience along with hands on learning in her Dog Training Facility.  You will not find another course with the benefits Brandi and The Hounds Grounds has put together in this course.  Learn how to start your dog training career properly.
