The Bill Heiser Personal Touch
When you buy a dog from Southern Coast K9, and then attend one of our K-9 Training Classes or K-9 Seminars, you’ll be given Bill’s home phone number. That way, should any problems arise and need immediate attention, you can call him up right away. If the issue cannot be resolved over the phone, no problem: Bill will provide additional training as needed.
