Sheepdog training
Written by Elizabeth Jardina

Petaluma, CA

Play: If you have a shepherd, that shepherd wants to herd. Only problem is that you don’t own sheep, which is why Spot’s best vacation ever will be at Dairydell Canine (reservations required; approx. $90 for lesson; dairydell.com). Seasoned sheepdog handler Frank Souza can coax even city shepherds into focused farm dogs—at least for a few minutes. Other doggy behavior classes are offered as well.

Eat: Afterward, lunch at cafe-bakery Della Fattoria ($; 707/763-0161). Try the Della BLT with heirloom tomatoes; your dog will pass on lunch—she’ll be sleeping under the table, dreaming of sheep.
