Our Happy Customers

James Morgan
The office (Ryan) gave me the most accurate estimate I've ever was to the penny what I paid for the install and added fees, no charges for parts or labor, etc. Caleb (installer) was very efficient, knowledgeable, personable and professional. He even found a better way to do the installation to cut down on the length of the cable which affects the quality of the service and made it less invasive to the property while staying within the guidelines of the property MGMT. I don't normally write reviews, but this company was so good that I felt compelled to do so!!! Do Not look any further than Big Dog Electronics!!!!! .
Emily Sprowls
Sophie was so helpful! She explained everything about each company to make sure I made an informed choice and then got everything set up for us. As new residents we are thankful we had a company to turn to for help in answering all our questions.
