Along with a wide variety of training classes, Pawsitive Directions K9 Academy in Clifton provides another essential service to dogs — dental cleaning.
Emily Evans, a licensed veterinary technician, offers cleanings without the use of traditional anesthetics, which she said results in a safer and less expensive procedure.
Evans uses a combination of swaddling and a few sprays of Bach flower, a natural extract, to relax dogs. She also brings to her job her long experience in working with dogs. “I understand dogs and they understand me.”
Evans offers cleanings for $85 for the first visit and $60 for subsequent visits. She also offers discounts for dogs that have been rescued from shelters and will even make house calls.
Proper dental care is important to improving the health and longevity of dogs, Evans said. But she also loves her interaction with pets. “You get to come to work and play with dogs.”
