Karli Petch

All areas

Full time

After 15 years in the commercial sector as a Project Manager/Recruitment Manager and Vetting Officer; Karli decided to follow her dream in 2016 and DotDot Pet Care was born in memory of their first baby, Dorothy their dog.  Having owned pets for all of her life, DotDot would provide a home from home pet care experience and allow her to spend more time with her family.

Since the creation of DotDot, Karli has taken great pleasure in finding like minded people to join the team (now known as the #DotDotFamily) and expand on the services that DotDot provide. Karli has used the DotDot platform to help several dog rescue centres and charities, which resulted in her family rescuing a puppy (Percy) from Cyprus in Jan 2019 and 6 months later the family was complete when she brought Percy's mum, Isla over from Cyprus too!  Firm partnerships have been developed with local rescue centres and UK based charities, Hull Animal Welfare Trust being DotDot's nominated charity.

Alice Daniells


Full time

Alice is a Pocklington home girl having lived here all of her life. She left the hospitality industry, where she was a manager for over 5 years, gladly trading in this role to spend time with loveable pooches, her own dog Pepper and enjoy a better work/life balance. 

If you ask Alice how she finds working in the great outdoors with all the doggy's, she will tell you with a smile on her face that even the rainy days are worth it!

She is a proud dog mum to Pepper, the beautifully crazy cocker and has grown up with both pets and working dogs as she comes from a background of game keeping, so she's used to having lots of dogs around, as well as a variety of different animals!  This upbringing means she is certainly not afraid of getting stuck in, wet and mucky.

Alice is into her CrossFit and trains hard - she has to be quick and strong to keep up with her Pock doggy's! 

In 2019 Alice was given the opportunity to become 'Team Leader', responsible for the Pocklington & surrounding villages clients and walkers.

Since joining the DotDot Family in February 2018 she has wowed us all with her ability to train and turn around the most nervous of dogs and the most hyper!  What Penny doesn't know about owning dogs isn't worth knowing, she truly is a fountain of knowledge for our clients and can often be found helping families outside of working hours.

Penny is prone to rogue animals joining her walks - the team always laugh at Penny's updates, our favourite being a random sheep following her gang out on a walk in HOSM, who apparently had some 'lovely heel work' !

Beverley Manager

Vicky Brown

Beverley & surrounding villages

Full time

Vicky moved to Market Weighton in 2019, and lives with her partner, 2 children and her 2 dogs.

When she moved to Market Weighton she needed a dog walker (Vicky was working in Logistics and had done for over two decades) and used DotDot for regular dog walks during her working week.  The DotDot love struck! And she wanted to become part of the team instead of a client!

Vicky grew up within a 'mad house' full of animals!  She recalls always having at least 3 dogs, ranging from Spaniels to German Shepherds and most were all rescue dogs.  She has experience with small pets too, having owned rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and birds.  It wasn't unusual for 12/13 year old Vicky to go out and play on a weekend and come back home with a stray dog (and just occasionally she would get to keep it!!).  Her fur family now consists of Ralph a Cocker Spaniel and Reggie, her newest addition, a terrier cross.

Vicky loves to keep fit and active, has a real passion for all animals and thinks working for DotDot is a dream come true.


  • Vicky loves festivals, camping and walking in the Isle of Wight
  • Plays netball in her spare time
  • Plays pool, darts and dominoes and will challenge anyone to a contest!

Carolyn Jackson

All locations

Part Time

Carolyn was born in Beverley but has happily lived in Market Weighton since the turn of the century. She is married with one daughter and was employed for 24 years at BAE Systems. She worked in administration but after taking voluntary redundancy has learnt new skills working locally.

The family have a beautiful tabby cat called Alfie who is Carolyn's first pet. Thinking she was allergic to cats and not being very confident around animals, things have now gone full circle; there is no allergy and Alfie loves to sit and snuggle with her at every opportunity!

Carolyn met Karli when they became neighbours in 2007 and it's safe to say that they are now firm friends with lots of fun times being had along the way.

  • Loves reading & walking
  • Has a smile for everyone :)
  • Carolyn is the Queen of paperwork!
