Traveler's Mom I didn't think my could bark......until he turned 2. After that it was a matter of trying to shut him up ;-)

SuperG Bark like a dog always reminds me of Bill Murray's line in Caddyshack.

""You beast... You savage... C'mon, bark like a dog for me!""

Maybe you own the 'barkless" variant GSD.

boomer11 Don't just tie him and then dance around like a crazy person. Take a tug and wiggle it in his face and when he goes to bite it, yank it away. Frustrate him.

Seize the moment.......and make sure this is what you want.

If that doesn't work then back tie him to a tree and tease him with a toy.

Of course when he barks you need to click/mark the behavior.

If that doesn't work then return your dog for being defective.
