About Nancy Banask

     Nancy, the owner of Hi-Top Dog Training, has been teaching and training dogs for over 30 years in the area!   She is the only trainer in the area to have attained an Obedience Trial Champion AND an Agility Champion on a dog.   Her dog OTCH MACH Sunfire's Chasing Drams UDX2 OM3 RE XF has been invited to the 2010 National Obedience Championship. 
     Nancy started training dogs as a young child.  She has a unique way of understanding and relating to the individual needs of your dog.   Her years of experience bring an expertise that is not seen in most trainers.   People have referred to her as the original "dog whisperer" long before Ceasar Milan.  Her sensitivity to your dog's personality and temperament along with her gentle, effective and unique methods yield fast results to a happy obedient dog and satisfied owner!  Nancy is a nationally known trainer having been in the top ten spots of agility and obedience over the years.  Nancy has experience with all breeds, large and small.  Over the years Nancy has rescued many dogs of different breeds and mixed breeds.   Nancy has also been involved with therapy work since the 1980's
