Make sure you have a diagram for this.
I had the dog being able to run 3/4 of a circle with a radius of 16 ft.
At that point the leash would bend around the other point of the barn along the shorter side of 12ft giving another 1/4 circle of radius 4 feet.

total area = (3/4)π(16^2) + 1/4(π(4^2))
= 192π + 4π = 196π square feet
