About Little Delights

Little Delights was established by Adrian Connolly. Adrian has worked as an area manager and the owner of the Little Delights pet care business for the past twelve years. He has been the owner of many different types of pets during his life. Adrian saw that there was an opportunity to provide a quality home boarding, pet sitting and dog walking service to customers at an affordable price. The focus of our business is to provide pet care and build positive relationships between the customer, their pets and their pet sitter. We are a small business offering home boarding, pet sitting and dog walking services to pet owners who for whatever reason can't be there all the time.

We have all different types of customers, from those who when at work need their dog to be walked and let out for a toilet break, to customers who want to go away for the weekend or longer.


We have a large customer base of cat owners and we provide an alternative to the catterey whereby we look after cats in the customers home. This is not only more cost effective but the result is that your cat is free from stress while continuing to live in the home environment and on their own territory while you are away. Dogs and cats make up the core of our business but we also look after: Birds, Rabbits, Donkeys, Reptiles, Small Animals and many more.

Meet and Greet/Key Collection

We provide free meet and greet/key collections. This gives you and your pet an opportunity to meet the sitter. The sitter will follow your instructions because you know your pet and their habits better than anyone.


Little Delights can provide pet sitting services at a very competitive rate because we keep our overheads low. We don't have an expensive website and booking system. We don't have a number of people sitting in an office building. We keep it simple and the benefits are passed on to the customer.

Property Services

We not only look after your pets but we will also manage your property while you are away. We can:

  • Open and close the curtains
  • Alternate lights
  • Put out the bins

  • Purchase pet food if it runs low

First things to look for when hiring a Professional Pet Sitter

A professional pet sitting and dog walking business should be able to provide you with a number of items which are considered to be standard practice and necessary when providing this type of service to customers.

They are: Proof of Garda Vetting, Proof of Pet Business Insurance and Proof of Membership of an independent Professional Body which sets standards and monitors the service provided by its members.

Little Delights displays information for all of these standards on this website.

Sick and Old Pets

We also specialize in looking after animals who are old and/or have medical requirements that requires tablets or injections during the visits.

We will send you a text after each visit to confirm that the visit is complete and that everything is ok at home.


We pride ourselves in the fact that we are a small business who puts pet care before large profits.

Our staff are full time pet care providers with a love of animals and not people who are just looking to make extra money.
