Herding Dog Demo at Naper Settlement July 18

The good people at Naper Settlement in Naperville, Illinois, have invited us and our dogs back to do a demonstration of sheep herding on Sunday, July 18. We will post the times as soon as the details have been worked out.

Naper Settlement is a wonderful trip back to the 19th century in the middle of very modern Naperville. It is a museum villiage complete with shops, dwellings, a church and village greens. A Sunday outing is great fun for all ages. We will see you there on July 18! Meanwhile, you can learn more about the settlement at http://www.napersettlement.org/ or check out the information about our demonstration at http://www.napersettlement.org/calendar/Sheepherding.htm.
