Meet Brandi Bryant of The Hounds Grounds in Orange County – Huntington Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandi Bryant.

Brandi’s love for animals began, well – her parents will tell you at birth! Her parents coming home to another dog appearing in the backyard was not uncommon. Training her family dogs (and there were always many) was a regular occurrence just as rescuing dogs was, but – in her 20’s she ended up playing in a band, moving to NYC and pursuing other avenues such as leather crafting, silversmithing and owning a couple of clothing brands.

Not until her 30’s did she finally give in to the undeniable fact that her path in life was dogs. At that time she ended up doing a little dabbling in simple training techniques until she landed herself a dog that made sure to challenge her to the point of no return. That dog became Brandi’s world and lead her down the rabbit hole of behavior modification and learning EVERYTHING she could to ensure this dog had the chance in life she wanted for him. He is the reason Brandi became a dog trainer by trade.

While diving all in she found a strong passion for behavior modification and the depths of learning about dogs you have to have in order to truly help them. That is where her life and business thrived. Over the years she has learned from some of the absolute best trainers in the business and continues to prioritize continued education this day.

Today she is the Founder, Owner and Head Trainer at her Dog Training Facility in Huntington Beach, CA – The Hounds Grounds. When she opened The Hounds Grounds the main drive was and is to give dogs a proper biological outlet to satisfy the genetic make-up us humans have so intently bred. This coupled with all aspects of dog training from, manners, obedience, sports, relaxation, scent work, and the Becoming A Dog Trainer Courses for those wanting to pursue a career in dog training, along with OnLine Courses, The Hounds Grounds is definitely the most pleasantly unique dog training business in Orange County. Part of Brandi’s passion is maintaining the importance and focus on the depth of knowledge the trainers have as part of the integrity of her business.

Brandi is pursuant in her passion and goals to teach dog owners what dogs truly need to thrive in life with us humans and to teach others who have the passions and drive to become dog trainers.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s never easy – The struggles have mostly landed in overcoming business obstacles while juggling everyday life. Those challenges will never end and these days we try and stay focused on staying the course and growing the business no matter what life throws at us. lol

The Hounds Grounds – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?

Brandi is pursuant in her passion and goals to teach dog owners what dogs truly need to thrive in life with us humans and to teach others who have the passion and drive to become dog trainers. The Hounds Grounds specializes in the whole dog – we know that the fulfillment of a dog, giving a dog purpose is KEY to training! We are without a doubt most proud to offer programs that are driven by this strong belief and factually information. We are very proud to teach others to become dog trainers who train with a deep knowledge of dogs.

The Hounds Grounds is definitely a unique dog training company as we do not believe in one size fits all training styles, we understand each and every dog has a biological need. What they find to be rewarding and how they learn have basic fundamentals in common but they all learn very differently and adjustments have to made for the dog that is in front of us.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Just a few of my proudest moments would include teaching Rescue Presidents and their board members to train the dogs they bring into their rescue. This ensures their success in a new home and saves the rescue thousands and thousands of dollars every year.

Opening a training facility to help more dogs and their owners and training others to become dog trainers are a couple of others I am very proud of.
