ABOUT WATERDOG

Waterdog Technologies is a new breed of IT distributor. Founded by the owner of one of the fastest growing MSPs in the country, Waterdog is out to turn IT distribution on its head by making the profitability and success of its MSPs its primary objective. What sets us apart from other IT distribution companies is that instead of selling hundreds of each solution, we pre-vet the options out there and select only the best IT product in each solution category to sell and back up with in-house support.
