The object of this puzzle is to completely enclose the sheep inside of the eight-sided pen. Move the objects (fence, sheep, dog, etc.) around by dragging them with your mouse. Part of the puzzle is figuring out which moves are allowed and which are not. Sometimes you can move more than one object in a single move by 'pushing' them.

The program keeps track of the number of moves you have made. If you reverse one or more moves, the program will lower the number of moves accordingly.

Champion sheepdogs can enclose the sheep in the pen in as few as 28 moves*.

*One of our visitors, "enaname", sent us a solution that enclosed the sheep in the pen in just 23 moves! They included with their solution the note, "Dedicated to the Creator of sheep, dogs, humans, and mind."
