Mission Statement

The Black Dog mission is to provide clients with expert managed telecommunications services, for all situations and locations, from design and planning through successful implementation and maintenance. This is achieved by using a highly skilled and motivated management team and engineers using professional skills and practical experience previously developed in similar environments.

Why ``Black Dog``?

We often get asked why Black Dog was chosen as a company name. It’s a logo that generates inquiry, here is the story that explains its genesis.

Sid was my Labrador and this silhouette was taken from a photograph of him while he was standing sentry watching while my kids were swimming in the sea.

Sid and his particular breed seemed to sum up the qualities I admired in my experiences with companies.

Labrador : A working dog breed most typically with a black or yellow coat, widely used as a gun dog or as a helping guide. Known for its loyalty, hard work and stamina

Sid and his particular breed seemed to sum up the qualities I admired in my experiences with companies, such as;

  • Loyal – A long term partner
  • Hard Working – Focused – seeing the job through
  • Personal – Easy to work and communicate with
  • Pedigree – Assured quality with experience and history
  • WYSIWYG – Honest – what you see is what you get

Why not build a company ethos around those principles?

What are BDC’s areas of expertise?

Extending pre and post-sale technical services to customers located worldwide is tough. When those environments are dangerous or non-permissive ensuring that quality of service and culture is also delivered can be a challenge. Black Dog Communications has a global reach. It specializes in placing benchmarked technical consultants who are often required to work alone, unseen, with the product user to ensure that your success, and future sales, are not left to chance.
