What does that have to do with positive training — or dogs, for that matter?
Baseball caps are great accessories between hair washes. They also keep the sun out of my eyes and add an extra layer of SPF protection.
Even more useful in the Pacific Northwest, they keep the rain out of my eyes. I like to wear them when I go on boats or into the woods for work, though that results in rather close quarters between my camera and the brim of the hat, especially when the pop-up flash enters the equation.
The past several months, my collection of caps has gotten a lot of use during dog walks. In addition to giving raindrops a platform to bounce off a few inches from my face, the brim shields my eyes from the headlamp I wear after dark to illuminate the street and assist in poop pickup. The hat itself cushions my forehead from the lamp as well.
Most importantly, they make me happy.
Here’s an assortment of images of me wearing baseball caps with my beloved babies.
