The dog ‘laugh’ (a kind of panting made by happy dogs) can calm other dogs when played over a loudspeaker:

They say the long, loud pant is the sound of a dog laughing, and it has a direct impact on the behavior of other dogs…

When they played the sound of a dog panting over the loudspeaker, the gaggle of dogs at the shelter kept right on barking. But when they played the dog version of laughing, all 15 barking dogs went quiet within about a minute.
