About the Book

We all have two dogs inside of us. One dog is positive, happy, optimistic, and hopeful. The other dog is negative, mad, sad, pessimistic, and fearful. These two dogs often fight inside us, but guess who wins the fight? The one you feed the most. So begins the story about a negative mutt named Matt and a big dog named Bubba who teaches him how to feed himself with positivity each day and in the process Matt transforms his own life and the shelter they call home.

The Positive Dog is an inspiring, heartwarming story that not only reveals the strategies and benefits of being positive but also an essential truth for humans: Being positive doesn't just make you better. It makes everyone around you better.

For anyone looking to overcome negativity and challenges to become more positive, The Positive Dog provides the inspiration and action plan to feed yourself and your team with positivity. When you feed the positive dog and feed others, everyone benefits!

What Others Are Saying

"This latest book by Jon Gordon is a another quick, easy read with a message that the reader can take to heart. Through my worksite I was exposed to my first two books by Mr. Gordon- The Energy Bus and The Seed. I learned so much about myself and the part I play in my own happiness and the success of our organization, that I was eager to read on about the role of positivity in our success. Besides the easy read, the main characters in this story are "played" by dogs, the advice is put in language that is easy for most to understand. My favorite part came at the end after the story was over- Jon has included an 11 day plan for becoming more positive beginning with being thankful for what we have. I don't want to give away the rest of the plan, but if you are working towards leading a more positive life, this is a great book to read!"
