you could try posting this in the behavior and training forum, when i needed clicker training advice there were a lot of great pups there to help. And in the forum you can get more info there you can in the answers part. :)

From your answer to another question it is clear you do not understand clicker training.
The *click is a message to the dog "whatever you just did is correct".
It is not a signal to get his attention.
Click means treat...EVERY time. You say *sit, dog sits..you click/treat immediately. Gradually increase the time he sits before you click..still treat immediately. Then increase the time between the click & the reward. Finally, only click/reward every 2nd or third correct response. Eventually, no click will be needed.
Now..as to your 2 year old. He is reaching maturity & there is a reason they call them bullies! lol
2 good books for you... "The Power of Positive Dog Training" by Pat Miller & "When Pigs Fly" by Killion.
Mika gave good advice...post in the Behavior & Training forum for more advice.
