In a recent study of dog owners, who claim to know their pets, only 40% of the owners could accurately interpret their dog's emotional state based on the sound of its bark.

Scientists in Budapest are now developing computer software that has a better track record of 43% and plan to enhance the software so that dog-to-human communication can be improved. The computer can determine when the dog feels lonely, spots a ball, when it fights, plays, sees a stranger, or wants to go for a walk.
