Possible, yes. Recommended, no.  DOCK 3.7 uses the rigid fragment +
decorations paradigm to sample conformations.  A peptide, even 3 residues
long, has too many internal degrees of freedom, and the "rigid fragment"
will likely be an aromatic side chain, if present, which may be peripheral.

For a case like this, I would recommend Rosetta.

Good docking
