NOTE: Type /SHEEPDOG to open the configuration panel.
Sheepdog's options are not directly available in the "Interface" panel due to ongoing tainting issues Blizzard is not willing to fix.

Useful to all classes this very simple add-on will prevent you from accidentally attacking crowd-controlled units.
Sheepdog will keep them safe from you!


  • It barks when you target a crowd-controlled unit.

  • It warns you gently when a unit has been crowd-controlled somewhere nearby so you
    can be a little bit more cautious with your AOEs.

Sheepdog doesn't bite!

Currently detected crowd-control spells:

  • Banish
  • Bind Elemental
  • Fear (Should be just glyphed-Fear but there is no way to tell them apart)
  • Hex
  • Hibernate
  • Polymorph
  • Repentance
  • Sap
  • Seduction
  • Shackle Undead
  • Wyvern Sting
  • Paralysis

Type /sheepdog (Graphical UI) or /shed (command line UI) for options (sounds and behavior).

Sheepdog supports AddonLoader: it will be loaded when you enter in combat or if you access to its configuration.

    @Twopro: Go

    Of course but I wouldn't be able to share it, would I?

    Sheepdog is a very simple add-on (500 lines of code) that requires zero configuration from the user. You want someone to be careful about other's CC spells? You can tell them to just install Sheepdog.

    hey, you do realize you could just add this sound clip to power auras or weak auras and track a target debuff to trigger a sound instead of writing a whole addon to do said process?

    Hi, I really like the idea of this addon. I use to use Sheppard (, but it has been abandoned. It had a great sqwaking sound whenever you targeted a crowd controlled target. thanks for making this :D
