Can animals understand each other?

I know this sounds really childish and immature but it got me thinking today.

When dogs bark at each other, are they saying words, or just making sounds to ward each other off?

    From what I understand, they are not words like human speak words. It is more of the tone/volume/consistency of the bark that they understand. It is more of emotions that they are producing than "words" if that makes sense.

    Yes,they can contact each other through vocal sounds and body movements.But it is of a form lower than what us humans use.I mean,they may communicate with each other like protecting their territories,mating etc.But I doubt that they can communicate socially to each other.They only use sounds to communicate only when they under certain conditions.

    They are showing emotions and feelings- it's their way of communication- but it's not like what we think of "words" and stuff. But they do understand eachother.

    You're wrong, we humans don't understand each other at all, if we did, all the wars, killing and hatred wouldn't be so!
