We started as a two-man construction company and have grown each year. Beth worked with me when our budget was not so great to develop a very nice website for a startup. As we have grown Beth expanded our website with new technology and greater flexibility. She is open to suggestions and lets me know if what I envision is feasible, cost effective, or user friendly.
Beth provides nothing short of top-notch quality and support. From the beginning of my website design to the day to day maintenance, Beth is always responsive and willing to assist with any task or idea I may have. Her understanding from the small business standpoint helps to create beautiful, effective and easily accessible website design.
Beth collaborates with her clients to help them define what information they want to communicate to their visitors and encourages them to gather visual material that will infuse the site with color and interest. She designs the website so navigation is effortless and visually stimulating. When the process is complete, you realize what a joy it was working with and getting to know such a talented individual!
The Roanoke Regional Chamber needed a new website that reflected our brand, was mobile responsive and that could easily be updated. Beth took the time to explain all of the options to me and kept me updated during the whole process. She exceeded all of my expectations, and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I would recommend Beth to any nonprofit or business looking to revamp their website.

“Howl’n Dog Designs has been prompt, efficient, and reasonably priced. We were so impressed with Beth and her team that in 2018 we re-commissioned them to completely renovate our website. We encourage anyone else to give them a try. We promise, you won’t be disappointed.”
“In today’s business world it is vital to have a professional website that gives customers the impression you mean business. Since first impressions count, we use website designer Beth Garst of Howl’n Dog Designs. Beth and her team are professional, creative, responsive, and dependable.

“Beth and her staff are flexible, efficient and creative and bring work in on deadline — a great combination. For the companies I work with, they do work distributed internationally and that involves a variety of information in various forms. Her company stays on top of trends and works well with company budgets.”
“The folks at Howl’n Dog take all the stress out of creating and managing first-rate websites, and importantly for us, their designs maintain their currency over the long term even in the fast-changing on-line environment. If only I could get my dogs at home to be so productive!”
