Pup Talk

Is your dog or puppy nervous, reactive and over-excitable? You love your dog, but are they making you feel stressed?

I’m Niki French, and with Bodie, my over-excitable rescue Collie Lurcher X, provide award-winning dog and puppy training to take the stress out of having a dog with struggles.

I’m passionate about helping people enjoy a fun and effective dog training so that their pup can live a calm and happy life.

After a 30-year corporate career, a bicycle accident in 2016 left me with a low-level brain injury. It made me look at what I wanted most in life. I couldn’t even have my own dog due to the hours I worked. In 2019 I resigned, retrained as a dog trainer and started Pup Talk. Bodie joined me from Battersea Cats & Dogs Home 3 months later.

I’m the author of the best-selling book STOP Walking Your Dog and founder of #dontwalkyourdogday (2nd April). My services include:
– 1-2-1 dog and puppy training – in-person locally, online globally.
– Pup Talk The Pack Membership – monthly dog training and community support.
– STOP Walking Your Dog book – paperback, Kindle and Audible versions.

I’m a Pro Dog Trainer (PDT) with Absolute Dogs and Dog Training College Approved Dog Trainer (DTC-ADT). Pet Industry Federation winner Pet Services Business of the Year 2022. SBS Small Business Sunday Winner 2022.

I’m based in Twickenham, but work with clients online all over the world with my membership Pup Talk The Pack and podcast Pup Talk The Podcast.
