I've heard of people teaching to Speak on command so that they can later teach No Speak. That doesn't work for me. But teaching speak does have a few good uses. We sometimes have out dogs bark a goodbye if a child stops to visit, especially if they are not sure of the dog. It is a friendly bark and it often brings a smile. We also used the command to teach our boy to bark at the Decoy / Helper in protection games.
When you charming little pup gets bigger perhaps you can teach "whisper" and "count".
