Can Rowlf understand Sprocket?

In "A Muppet Family Christmas," Rowlf meets Sprocket. Sprocket barks at him, and Rowlf responds, "Woof woof! Yeah, bark bark!" Doc says, "Don't you just hate it when you can't speak the language?" Here's the clip in question (at about 0:50.)
Are the two dogs actually communicating?

My wife and I disagree: can Rowlf understand what Sprocket is "saying?" I took Doc's comment to mean that Rowlf does not understand Sprocket. My wife says that Doc means that Doc doesn't understand dogs. I'm not an expert on the Muppet-verse, so can Rowlf speak to and understand non-English-speaking dogs?
