  • I used Small Dog's consulting services and worked with Nate. He was excellent - Nate takes the very technical and communicates it in a way that not only makes it easy to understand but that I'll also remember going forward. It was like taking a mini-class while also learning how to fix the problem at hand. He was personable, addressed my issues, and mindful of the time. Definitely recommend!
