Sundog is a marketing and technology company based in Fargo, North Dakota with offices in Denver, Colorado and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The company provides services related to marketing and technology to its roughly 75 clients. Sundog has clients in the engineering, manufacturing, health and technology industries.[1]


Sundog was co-founded by Brent Teiken and Chuck Duffie in 1996.[2] In 2003, the company merged with G.L. Ness Agency and BankShot Productions to form a holding company, Correlat.[3] In 2006, the three companies came under one name, Sundog.[4] In 2012, Sundog expanded to Minneapolis, Minnesota and Denver, Colorado. Since 2009, the company operated in Denver as 29 Stories, a wholly owned subsidiary.[5]

In 2009, Sundog laid off 15-16 percent of its employees, citing the economic downturn.[6]


Sundog was named on Advertising Age's "Best Places to Work" in 2011 and 2012, ranking 25 and 22 on the list, respectively.[7][8] The magazine said Sundog has an "informal environment," including voluntary weekly meetings called "Monday Funday," informal discussions about new technologies called "Tech Talks," and monthly after-work parties called "Friday Four O'Clocks," which include performances by the agency's employee band.[9][10] In an article for The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, the company's work environment was described as relaxed, with a casual dress policy and a modern workspace.[11] In 2010, the agency was named the best place to work in North Dakota by the North Dakota Young Professionals Summit.[12][13] Sundog has attributed its performance to a strong corporate culture. CEO Brent Teiken said such a culture is achieved through consistent company values, engagement, and culture planning.[14]


In 2012, Sundog was named to Inc. Magazine's 5000, which ranks the country’s top 5000 fastest-growing, private companies. The company was ranked 3793 on the list. The magazine cited the company's 43 percent growth and 18 jobs added in the previous three years.[15]

Sundog has been awarded numerous campaign awards, including the Fargo-Moorhead chapter of the American Advertising Federation with awards in 2006,[16] 2009,[17] 2011[18] and 2012.[19] Sundog has received numerous Telly Awards for video advertisements for Bob FM, Ball State, Paul Bunyan Telephone, and Concordia College.[20]

Eric Dukart, Chief Operating Officer, was named on Prairie Business Magazine's "40 Under 40" list in 2011.[21] In 2012, Jonathan Rademacher, Chief Technology Officer, was named to the list.[22]
