Yes: A, b, and rh+ are dominant traits. Since inheritance comes from both parents you and your wife each have a rh positive and a rh negative trait. Together both of you passed along the recessive rh- trait to your child. Likewise, the parent who is of b type probably also carries the recessive o trait which would allow the a trait from the other to be dominant.

What can I do if my blood type is a- my daughter is o+ what would her fathers blood type be?

Many possibilities: Her father has be + (rh positive); for ABO blood groups he could be a, b , o. The only blood group he could not be is ab rh neg.
