1. Always barks at gate or door
2. Happens at a particular time of day
3. Has recently had a fright or change in circumstances i.e. new neighbours, new addition or change to family, regular walking stopped, anybody ill in family etc.
4. Your reaction to the barking.
5. How much exercise and mental stimulation does he get.

Plus anything else you can think of. When trying to analyse why a behaviour is happening, we need to look at what has caused it and the above will help me to give you some ideas.
