|That is incorrect. Each click must be followed with a reward, generally speaking a primary reinforcer, i.e., food. If the dog has been trained to do a chain of behaviors, one behavior linked to the next then you can click at the end of the chain and reward, but it is not correct to click each behavior and reward at the end of a series. Further, it is not necessary or appropriate to use a clicker after the dog has learned the behavior.
