It's an excellent communication tool. With that being said, it does take some practice on the handler's part; timing is important. When in doubt, assume it was your error, not the dog's, and give a free cookie for your mistake

Thank you so much to everyone for your input! From what I had read online about clicker training and also about Dobermans, it seemed like a natural fit, but was looking for some firsthand experience
Loved the video of the GS, because it gave me a visual of what it looked like.
Canít wait for our new puppy!
