Structured around the foundation of family, teamwork, and societal ethics, Big Dog TV & Internet is quickly earning recognition as a prominent company in today’s small business world.

As recognition comes we continue to expand our offerings and services including into the renewable energy market.

With onward and upward as one of our main goals, our intent is to be a leader on a nationwide level.
From a more broad perspective, the being of Big Dog is directly attributed to our fearless leader. Brad Barrott has been in the satellite industry since its establishment in 1999.
As previously mentioned, Brad was the one man show, but quickly grew the business to what is now an operation of over 75 employees and conducting business concretely in 7 different markets and 2 countries with the ability to provide satellite coverage nationwide.
Since inception, several other key people have joined forces in helping to run the company. Kenny Pfannenstiel came in to the picture in the year 2000 and went from part time installer, driving his Honda Civic with a perfectly set up install bag, to CFO, and now COO of Big Dog and the ultimate go to guy.
The CFO since 2006, Bill Donnelly, has also been a long time player in the growth of the business as well. It was Bill’s suggestion to Brad as a close friend, prior to Big Dog’s establishment, that he take a look at the satellite TV business. Bill helped to get Brad approved for a dealership and the rest is history in the making.
