My Molson had different barks that informed me quite clearly what was on his mind. Listen to the types of barks your dog has and you'll soon realize what he's saying. When i would get in the boat and beg him to come he'd be giving me proper hell by barking in a monitone rythm and i could time it by counting between each "Whoof" small pause count 1...2...then a Whof. Not sure i'm being clear. Like this: Whof 1, 2, then whof 1, 2, whof1...2... Etc. this means, "Hey!!! Over here! Mom! this is NOT right Mom! I want in too! I'm not secure I can i can get in here, MOM, MOM CONVINCE ME! mom, show me again will you? mom, show me how to get up the nerve here! MOM STOP LOOK, i'm not in the water and I'm wasting time talking about it! mom i want you to convince me!". I think if you listen you'll hear that rythm bark. If he thought I was in trouble or danger his bark would be a normal pitch but then pitch would rise high and the "whof" wouldnt be formed as the pitch and succession would rise. If this isn't clear just listen to ur dog and soon you'll be speaking Dog like you are one! I lost my 16 year old chatterbox on the 30th Dec so i'm happy to relive everything everyone talks about. I hope this was helpful. Please let me know! Good luck!!!
