    Which statistical test is most appropriate to use, given the following information?

    I am unsure as to which statistical test to use for this dataset given that there are different sample numbers for different categories.

    Given 4 dogs (A,B,C,D), we want to know if there is a significant difference between the different vocalizations: barks, growls, whimpers, and pants. Each dog had their mouth opening measured in millimeters.

    Dog A:
    Number of barks: 27
    Number of growls: 12
    Number of whimpers: 0
    Number of pants: 4

    Dog B:
    Number of barks:14
    Number of growls: 27
    Number of whimpers: 9
    Number of pants: 2

    Dog C:
    Number of barks: 39
    Number of growls: 5
    Number of whimpers: 18
    Number of pants: 2

    Dog D:
    Number of barks: 0
    Number of growls: 16
    Number of whimpers: 8
    Number of pants: 1

    Also, is more information regarding this dataset required to determine what statistical test to use?

    Have looked at a \chi^2 test? You can reject H_0 where \chi^2_{calc}\geq\chi^2_{crit}
