About the Staff


The Technician:Dusty Dog Garage Mechanic

Who are you?

My name is David Bongiovanni and I am the proud owner of Dusty Dog Garage!

When did you learn the business?

I have had a passion for working on vehicles from a very early age. I spent the last 10 years working in the vehicle repair industry satisfying many customers and gaining a wealth of valuable knowledge and experience. I have been a service writer, technician and manager in both light and heavy duty vehicle repair foreign and domestic.

What’s your expertise?

I have successfully mastered both gas and diesel vehicle repair and I have the tools, knowledge and experience to provide comprehensive diagnostic troubleshooting as well as any required chassis/powertrain repair. In addition to proven vehicle repair skills, I am also an accomplished machinist and welder and I have expertise and equipment necessary to provide custom fabrication services well beyond the capacity of a typical repair shop.

Why do you do what you do?

Dusty Dog Garage has been my dream since I first helped my Dad work on our Ford Bronco when I was a kid. Though I have been very successful working for other companies, I recognized many things that I would do different to better serve customers with my own shop. I have always had a passion for working on vehicles and I enjoy helping people by solving their vehicle problems.
