Using the training methods she learned from a master student of Cesar Millan, Evelyn Coons helps owners teach their dogs basic commands, as well as provides insight into canine psychology. Evelyn then talks to owners to understand their dogs' unique issues. Classes allow five to eight dogs each and are held at Doggone-It Daycare, typically at 6:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. Monday–Thursday and at 10 a.m. on Saturdays. Sunday classes and additional Saturday classes may be added based on demand.

Evelyn Coons watched the images of dispossessed pets appear during the news segments on Hurricane Katrina. An animal lover her whole life, she couldn't look at the coverage and not help. She ventured to Second Chance At Love in California, a no-kill shelter that took in 30 dogs who had lost their homes in the hurricane. While volunteering there, she learned from the shelter's founder Cheri Lucas, a practitioner of the training methods developed by "The Dog Whisperer," Cesar Milan.
Now with her own training school, Evelyn continues teaching Milan's methods, helping clients to understand their dogs' innate desires to be well-mannered socialites who always hold their wine glass by the stem. Additional services include treadmill and park sessions to give energetic pooches a safe, structured exercise program. With a particular fondness for pit bulls, she and her husband also rehabilitate dogs rescued in the Tulsa area.
