Why choose K9 Ambitions ?

Free Evaluation
Other providers charge upwards of $300 to simply evaluate your dog. We believe that it's most important to start off on the right foot and ensure a good fit for your furiend. We offer FREE evaluations to sit down and understand your needs and ambitions to plan together how we can make them become a reality.

Personalized dog training
We understand the need and meaning of personalized dog training. Not every dog is the same and not every need can be outlined or met by general commands such as: come, sit, stay. We work with you directly to ensure all problems and needs you have are met as best as possible.

FREE Follow up private lessons
All board & train courses come with FREE private lessons that can be redeemed at any time after training is complete. These private lessons are in place to assist you, the owner, with any issues you may have after your best friend is back home. Too many times people take their dogs to get trained and they come home and slowly (or quickly) slip back into bad habits. This is designed to slow any regression and assist your dog back with transition back into your home. Training is an ongoing process - you shouldn't feel like you are alone after training is complete. We are here to help !

Home trained environment
We utilize a home environment for the large portion of our training. Not only does this eliminate many of the stressors that other providers have with kennels housing 15+ dogs and rarely seeing outside time, but we also ensure dogs understand the importance of house manners too ! Simple commands like not running out the door when open, barking when a stranger walks by the house, or even going to place while dinner is being made. These are all possibilities that can be worked while your dog is trained with us.

Communication and transparency
We understand sending your dog for training is bitter sweet and missing your fur babies can be rough. We utilize software that sends out daily updates (and pictures!) to keep you updated on progress and achievements your dog has made. We also post to Facebook frequently to brag and show your best friend off while they improve their obedience! We're more than happy to setup a couple days throughout training where we can work a private lesson with you to also give you an opportunity to see your best friend and some cool new things they have learned .

Founder and Trainer


My name is Elizabeth Simmons, I’m a certified dog trainer from Tarheel K9 academy. After working and training with a variety of different dog trainers locally and out of state, i’ve decided to start my own training routine. There are many procedures and industry “standards” that can be improved upon greatly, and at K9 Ambitions, this is what I plan to do.

Dog Training

Here at K9 Ambitions I understand how hard the transition from a trainer back to owner can be so after your pet graduates you will have free follow up private lessons where I will come to your house or meet you in a public place (within 30 minutes of Chattanooga TN) so I can help you through any struggles you might be having with your pet.
You will also have unlimited access to alumni group classes that will be held quarterly as well as unlimited email and phone support.

After your pet trains with us you will receive:
  • Free invitation to our quarterly alumni group classes 
  • 10% Discount off of any future dog training services
  • At least 1 free follow up training lesson depending on plan

Dog training and obedience is ongoing

Obedience is a forever commitment. Once your pet is out of training it is now your responsibility to keep them on the right path! I will provide you the knowledge and tools to do this but it is ultimately up to you. Dogs are by nature opportunistic and if they see they can start slacking in areas, they will. This does not mean you will have to take hours out of your day to train your dog just a few minutes of maintenance will do! I will show you everything you need to know, and of course, every course comes with FREE follow up lessons !
