About Koos

Being a huge dog lover and fond of cats as well, I like to be more around them. I have had a Great Pyrenees mix and miss him enormously, but currently not having a dog. We have a cat, and she is a special character! I am just retired and therefore very flexible during mornings, afternoons, and evenings. I like to be more around animals. I have trained my dog successfully and try to do that with other dogs as well. A simple sit and no jumping are what I try to do when I meet them (to be honest: not always immediately successful), but I like to try.

I have a Dutch background and worked internationally, but live now for more than 12 years in Calgary area. Have worked hard in several roles and dare to say that I am very reliable. Once agreed on something, it is written in stone for me.
