Jamie Migdal, CPDT-KA, has been working with pets and their people for more than 20 years. From founding five startup companies in the pet industry to working hands-on with over 20,000 dogs, Jamie’s experience and passion with dogs has made her a thought leader and expert in entrepreneurship and the pet industry.
In 1996, Jamie founded OutUGo Pet Care Services, which now operates as a leading pet franchise company serving pet communities all over the country. Five years later, she founded AnimalSense Canine Training & Behavior, the fastest growing dog training company in the Chicago area.
Following the sale of AnimalSense in June 2011, Jamie announced her third startup, CanineLink Education and Consulting. CanineLink offers pet industry professionals, and those who want to enter the industry, opportunities for increased growth, knowledge and risk prevention via top-notch educational and consulting programs.
In 2013, Jamie identified the need for a career site dedicated to the industry she loved so much. And FetchFind was born!
Jamie serves on a number of advisory boards of women-owned businesses, and is committed to participating in the business community, particularly as it relates to supporting fellow entrepreneurs. She lives in Chicago with her husband, three-year-old daughter and two Collies she rescued. There’s also a little cat named Rami who is beautiful in every way. In any spare time, Jamie pretends to play guitar, do yoga and meditate. She is patiently waiting to turn all of those interests into actual daily practices.
