I recently had the opportunity to work with Big Dog Pyro on a large event at the Austin Convention Center. They were a pleasure to work with from pre-show to post ! Everyone on their team was creative, flexible and professional. Their pricing was very fair and they provided terrific value. I've been in the business over 30 years and can say this is one of the best companies I have worked with. I highly recommend them. Kathy Meth, Executive Producer, Multi-Image Group

AAM held our 25th Anniversary Supplier Day in Austin, Texas. Our company is headquartered in Detroit, so we selected many of our local vendors based on positive referrals and word of mouth. Carolina and her Big Dog Pyro team came highly recommended to us, and for very good reason. She and her team made the entire process smooth and flawless. I cannot recommend the Big Dog team enough and hope to work with them in the future!

Due to COVID-19, my school district could not host its annual back to school convocation. Instead, we created a 10-minute drive-in celebration that featured a fireworks display to kick off the new school year with a bang. The communication from planning to setup to kicking off the show was fantastic. The show itself exceeded all of our expectations, and I can’t even begin to share all of the positive feedback I received from staff about the fireworks display. Big Dog Pyro gets my highest recommendation.

Carolina and Big Dog Pyro were absolutely amazing at my wedding! Honestly their pyro display was the highlight of the evening and went off with a bang. It was gorgeous and so professionally done, and made for the most perfect photo opportunities, not to mention, it wowed our guests. I can't recommend Big Dog Pyro enough to anyone who is looking to put a fantastic touch on their wedding reception!

Big Dog Pyro provided pyrotechnics for my wedding sendoff and I am so glad we went with them! Our venue was extremely difficult to work with on the fireworks but Carolina from Big Dog did everything to make our last-minute plans go smoothly. She was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and professional throughout the entire process, and you can tell the company works with integrity (which was not the case with other pyro vendors I reached out to). They know the ins and outs of safety and permitting as well, so it was easy for me to leave those details in their hands. Thanks Big Dog!

Big Dog Pyro was one of my favorite vendors for our wedding. They came on to put on the most beautiful, and the most phenomenal firework display I've ever seen (next to Disney World). The fireworks display made our night EVEN MORE beautiful. Many of our wedding guests even said they were better than most 4th of July fireworks they've ever seen. I just want to say thank you to Carolina and the rest of the Big Dog Pyro team from the bottom of my heart. You made our night absolutely MAGICAL and we are forever grateful for these memories! ❤️

Big Dog Pyro brought the wow factor to our wedding exit, turning it into a breathtaking spectacle that left our guests in awe. Even with the hustle and bustle of wedding planning, their team made the process stress-free and enjoyable. We're already dreaming of the next occasion to work with Big Dog Pyro again, and we wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone looking to add a touch of magic and excitement to their events.
