Clicker training is one of the best ways to train. You can shape behavior so quickly. Timing is everything. We started out at puppy kindergarten with a clicker but the one we used was super LOUD and Brody was scared of it. So the clicker certainly didn't reinforce anything for him! Be sure and test it out in the store before you buy to make sure it has a pleasant little click and doesn't sound like a cap gun going off like ours did!
