Sarah Keller

Sarah Keller is the owner of Sit Stay Squat, which combines her love for dogs with her passion for fitness into a unique service that offers exercise programs for both people and their pups.  

Sarah has spent over 10 years studying advanced human fitness ranging from long distance running, bodybuilding, powerlifting, and prehabilitation exercise.  Sarah has first hand experience on just how important a well designed exercise program is in leading a healthy, pain-free life.

In 2017 Sarah traveled to Chicago to learn more about the benefits that fitness has for our dogs, and is currently Alberta’s only Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer; while being only the 2nd trainer across all of Canada to hold this title.
Additionally Sarah has completed the 23+ hours of lectures & tests for CCFT I and is scheduled for the Certified Canine Fitness Trainer live lab through The University of Tennessee in September, 2020.  By next year Sarah plans to be the only professional in the entire world with both CPCFT & CCFT credentials – the 2 most credible canine fitness certifications worldwide.

Sarah continues her education on a daily basis by reading every book that she can find on canine exercise, structure, & gait analysis; and has completed numerous other programs on canine fitness, massage, and behavior.
