I have a little mutt (beagle/dachshund/aussie), and she has a large vocal variation. She has different barks for outside for bathroom vs outside for sunshine vs outside for something's in the yard. I can really understand what she's trying to convey because of the variations (and well cause she's trained me to them). I agree with research and am kind of amazed that it's not been more realized in the past.

I think all dog owners already know this. My dog has several different barks and I know what they all mean. She has play barks, mad barks, wants something barks, bored barks, territory barks, attention barks. Need I say more. She has a lot more barks and they all sound different. I know what each and everyone sounds like and what they mean. Even though my dog prob barks a lot more then most I'm sure all dog owners can agree with me on this.

Duh, you have to research
I have known this for years. I could always tell by my dogs bark who was coming to visit, friend or foe. They have a different bark when it's time to eat or going for a ride. My dogs bark tells me lots of things. They communicate so well, we as humans just have to take the time to understand,
