"You might be very good at what you do, but how good are you at business?"

Who we are

You might be a superb dog professional but do you have the commercial awareness and management skills to drive your business forward? You may well be qualified, licensed, experienced, confident in your chosen profession but never had experience of running a business before.

The Canine Business Coach is run by Andrea Newton – herself a qualified, experienced, competent and caring business coach with over 25 years commercial awareness and a passion for all things “dog”.  Andrea combines a strong commercial background with in-depth knowledge of and commitment to the canine world, she works hard to help small businesses like yours move their business forward.

After graduating with a degree in International Marketing and building a successful career in sales & marketing, and a published author, Andrea went on to qualify as a HR professional, adding training, assessing and coaching qualifications to her portfolio. Over the last 18 years she has built up her own consultancy business from scratch, first as a sole trader and then establishing a Limited Company, during which time she coached literally hundreds of business executives in a wide range of situations from Top 100 blue chip companies to small family run affairs. Andrea has helped people develop skills in a range of areas – from those who were on the verge of starting up a brand new business from scratch to others who were looking to retire and find a way of earning “pocket money”. She has run recruitment campaigns, written people management procedures, helped companies grow, to develop and diversify and has excellent references from some very well known organisations. With a successful consultancy career and a passion for all things dog, Andrea is a great choice as your Canine Business Coach.

She has always been involved with dogs – dogs were in the family before she was! This led to a keen interest in studying canine qualifications herself, keen to know more about canine psychology, training, behaviour and emotional healing, before going on to found and develop a highly successful UK nationwide charity that helps dogs in need – rescuing, rehabilitating rehoming, campaigning – with the help of a network of qualified professionals. It was during the last 5 years that she realised that although the dog professionals that she met and hired were very capable in what they did, they sometimes struggled with the business side of things – not promoting themselves very well, making them difficult to find, then to contact, then prices that make you question their value etc. The studies undertaken by canine professionals often “touched on” the business side of things, but in a fleeting and surface deep way, and so The Canine Business Coach was established. Andrea only works with dog professionals who share her beliefs and values when it comes to dog care – positive, kind, caring and understanding.
