    Have you tried to teach your dog the command - "SPEAK". Sit in front of him with some treats (probably high value treats to start with). Move your hand in an open and closed fashion )like a mouth opening and closing) while saying the command "SPEAK". When he lets out even a slight noise, treat him. Do it again and again. Every time he does ...treat and praise him. Make a big fuss, by being overly excited. He'll soon catch on. Just be patient and keep at it.

    Let me know how it goes.
