    Friendly family in need of childcare, dog walking and help at home in beautiful Squamish. Wake up to stunning views in an amazing house in Squamish, where adventures await around every corner. Hiking and mountain biking trails on your doorstep and world class climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, kitesurfing, bike park, skiing, cross country skiing nearby ....... the activities are endless!
    We live in an incredible home in University Highlands in Squamish and have a four year old daughter and three year old dog. Both are lovely, fun and have endless energy! My husband Rob works away for half of the year and when he is gone I could do with some help with childcare, walking Barley and around the home, especially with cooking. Freya is fun and very active and loves swimming, biking, skiing, soccer and playdates. Barley is a golden retreiver/ Irish setter mix and a lovely family dog. I work 4 days a week and Freya is in school.
