Coaching & Mentoring Services for Professionals 
within the Animal Care Industry

Coaching & Mentoring What is the Difference? 


That is a good question, coaching and mentoring apply the same set of skills and approach but coaching is usually short term task-based and mentoring tends to be a longer term relationship. With coaching there are usually set sessions on a set basis and are usually focused on key development areas like learning scissoring techniques, canine communication or marketing approaches and have set goals to be achieved. Mentoring tends to take a longer journey with the mentee setting the pace as and when they need advice or guidance, the sessions are more relaxed and tends to focus more on career and personal development rather than task or skills based.
