Alley & Layla

My Best Friends Pet Sitting Service is owned and operated by Alley Budash, along with her best friend and partner, Layla. Alley has called the Stroudsburg, PA area home for over 40 years, and built My Best Friends Pet Sitting Service from a life-long passion for all animal friends along with her related work experience.

Alley worked as a veterinary technician for several years. As a vet-tech, she gained valuable insights on pet symptoms and treatments for countless conditions. Then, as a Humane Officer for Monroe County, Pennsylvania, she worked to ensure all livestock and larger animals raised within the county were treated with the care and comfort they deserve. She served on the board for large and small animal rescue organizations and was designated as one of their dog evaluators.

Through her work with Noah’s Wish, Alley was trained for animal shelter and recovery services, and traveled to New Orleans, LA to aid in animal relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. As of November 25, 2005 they cared for 1,564 animals during this situation, and reunited more than 1,257 lost pets with their owners.

Alley received her dog training certification through the Animal Behavior College, which is recognized by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors (NADOI) and The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA). She continues her education through various regional and national seminars and workshops.

Layla is the lively, beloved border collie Alley rescued in 2014. Since then, Layla has become an integral partner with My Best Friends Pet Sitting Service – providing socialization, exercise, training assistance, and the occasional natural herding of other pets.
