I have seen some dogs that have been clicker trained. For some dogs it has worked great, for others not. The determining factor is the owner, whether they have a true understanding of how to properly utilize the method.
As far as "traditional" method, I do not understand what "traditional" means to you.
I do not use a "method", I just do what I do, and tailor it to fit the individual dog. Basically I "show" and "reward", trying to eliminate the wrong choices the dog can make so that he is successful. Gradually "proof" the training by offering choices. Correct when necessary.
Reward: praise verbal or physical, treat, play, freedom.
Correction: verbal, physical, witholding treat, play, freedom.
My main focus on training is building a deep bond, being the fair, fun leader my dog WANTS to be with and do for.
It is not as much the training method, but the understanding and devotion to the method.
