Corinne Wrend has over 30 years experience training and competing with her dogs. She initially started competing in Obedience, getting to Class C with her Collie, Seil. She then switched sports to compete in IPO with her Malinois – achieving IPO3 with three different dogs, using reward based methods. Corinne has also competed in Working Trials, trained a number of dogs and people in various sports and has trained dogs for film work.
Corinne is best known for her positive, force free methods and ‘naked IPO’ (protection routine training without helper) which she uses with her current competing dog, Chasca. Chasca has competed at IPO World Championship level, worked on television, assisted at Victoria Stillwell student training days and been a volunteer dog for FitPAWS classes. Along with various tricks and behaviours she does for fun, Chasca is currently being trained for Working Trials competitions. Corinne works as an Aftercare Assistant and trains dogs for Canine Partners and is also a WSDA green level Instructor.
