A to Z Challenge 2015

Last year’s A to Z Challenge was so stimulating and fun, I’m doing it again. I didn’t establish a particular theme last year, but because this is a dog blog, of course all my posts followed that theme.

This year, my theme is POSITIVE ONLY. Not only will I focus on the positive reinforcement training relationship I have with my dogs, but I will strive for each of my Alphabet words to be positive too. So you won’t see posts called Force-Free, or Why prong collars are bad, because those topics focus on the negative.

Daily posts are subject to change, but here’s what I’ve brainstormed so far:

A – All-positive
B – Baseball cap
C – Cheese, or the C’mon cue
D – Dedication
E – Every Day
F – Fun
H – Harness
R – Reinforcement

Other ideas will come to me, probably while I’m walking my dogs, every day, while I wear a baseball cap and they wear harnesses, feeding them cheese for positive reinforcement, dedicated to having fun.

This post is part of the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal.

  1. Digging the dogs and your theme…

    There’s no earthly way of knowing.
    Which direction we are going!

  2. Could you come train my neighbors dogs……..PLEASE and thanks! They bark at everything and the owners do nothing. I can’t count the times they wake us up barking before daylight, truly irritating. We first thought it was because they were puppies, well it’s been a good number of years since they got past being puppies. I’m positive…..they’re annoying….the owners I mean for doing nothing about it.

  3. A great theme! Very good too for dog owners! Not sure if we are getting another dog; we lost our 10 year old corgi to cancer in December; we’re giving it a year to think about another dog. I’m sure people will find the info you post here very informative! Good luck with the challenge!
