You can start clicker training at any time! My dog was around three when we started but it wasn't long before I lost my clicker lol! I bought a new one the other day and she picked it up again in no time--she's six now.

What helps with the food dependency is making it random, so she doesn't know if she's getting a treat or not--similar to what keeps gamblers addicted! I start out clicking and treating EVERY time, and then as she gets it down I'll start doing it less and less, and at random, until she's doing it without the treat more than with it.
