Revere: Do dogs understand barks?
Whenever the big dog over the back fence barks, our little dog goes racing to the back door, barking like crazy. Forget the fact that if the two dogs actually came muzzle to muzzle, the other dog would eat ours with one mouthful. On the other hand, when dogs bark on television, our dog either lifts her head briefly or keeps on snoozing. I often wondered if dog barks meant anything except making dog noise. You can still assume dogs communicate without requiring them to do it through through barking. And if barking means something, is it just the barks of a dog’s own breed or is their cross-breed understanding? Are their “bark languages”?
I’ve got things to say about this, but I stuck my comments over on Effect Measure’s site.
