Meet the Team


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 2015 and DotDot Pet Care was born in memory of their first baby, Dorothy their dog.

Having owned pets for all of her life, a runner and not phased by lots of exercise and mud, DotDot would provide a home from home Pet Care experience and allow her to spend more time at home with her 3 children . 

Over the last 3 years 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 been helping several Cypriot & Serbian dog rescue charities, which resulted in her family rescuing a puppy (Percy) from Cyprus in Jan 2019 and in Sept this year the family was completed when she brought Isla over from Cyprus to be with her son Percy!

Alice Daniells


Full time

Alice is a Pocklington home girl, living here all of her life. She's recently left the hospitality industry, where she was a manager for the past 5 years, gladly trading in this role to spend time with loveable pooches in the great outdoors.  If you ask Alice how she finds working in the great outdoors with doggys, 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 dogs all her life. Coming from a background of game keeping she's used to having lots of dogs around, as well as a variety of different animals and 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 doggys!

In summer 2018 Lynne started supporting varying Cypriot & Serbian dog rescues and brought over her own rescue doggy Gertie from Cyprus as a companion for her other GSP Mouse.

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 Pennys updates, the latest being a random sheep following her gang out on a walk in HOSM, who apparently had some 'lovely heel work' !

  • Enjoys caravanning with the kiddies and doggies
  • Loves cycling, a regular visitor to Dalby Forest!
  • Climbed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks many times

Since joining DotDot in January 2019 John has quickly settled into the role and its safe to say all the fur babies and their families have come to rely on his funny daily updates and photos (he always manages to get the doggys to stick their tongues out and smile for their pics!).

Four years ago Helen decided to get her first dog (Freddy) from a family that could no longer cope with him.  Her passion for dogs began!  Now she has three Labradors; Freddy, Mable and Robin.  She loves nothing more than to be walking and outdoors with her dogs.

Zoe Foxworthy

South Cave & Newbald

Full time

Zoe was born in Hull, but has now settled in Newbald with her partner and their many animals!  She has always had a love of the great outdoors and was surrounded by pets growing up, so it's only natural that she now lives with 3 dogs, a cat and a flock of 15 chickens!

Primarily her work history is within customer services and administration but because she has always wanted to work with animals (especially dogs!) she has been heavily involved with volunteering and fundraising with Hull Animal Welfare for quite some time and along with her friends, has raised over £4000 for them to date (and counting!).

Zoe has experience and is confident with handling large breed dogs.  She currently owns Bully (a Bull Terrier) and 2 lurchers (Costa & Chance) all of whom she has rescued and given them their forever home.

An avid crafter who spends the majority of her free time creating all varieties of handmade craft items, unsurprisingly mostly dog related!

Part Time

Carolyn was born and bred in Beverley but has happily lived in Market Weighton for the past 18 years. 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.
