If you are in the market for a haircut or a nail trim, students at a local Anchorage high school can help, provided, of course, that you’re a dog.


The King Career Center (KCC) has offered a course in veterinary science for a while, but very recently students there have branched out. The school has launched a doggie day care that’s open to the public.


Veterinary science teacher Vanessa Forbes was behind the idea. She said the program offers full- and half-day slots, as well as a host of grooming services. Students get hands-on experience and are learning skills they can use as veterinary assistants.


Forbes said the daycare doesn’t charge a specific fee, instead there are suggested donations for services. She said the money raised goes back into the program for public speakers and field trips.


The daycare is by appointment only and is open during school hours, roughly 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
