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; $50 for lesson; www.dairydellcanine.com). Seasoned sheepdog handler Frank Souza can coax even city shepherds into focused farm dogs—at least for a few minutes.
Eat: Afterward, lunch at cafe-bakery Della Fattoria ($; 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.
