A clicker CAN be a great tool! Have you tried clicking WHILE feeding her an all-time favorite treat??? You have to get her to associate the clicker = very good things happen. It may take a while, and you have to have patience.

What do I do if my dog is afraid of the clicker?
Some dogs are afraid of the sound of the clicker. There are a couple of solutions to this. One solution is to put several strips of adhesive tape over the dimpled end of the clicker. The more layers of tape, the softer the click. As the dog becomes used to the sound, you can begin removing layers of tape. Another solution is to use a different marker. Click the end of a ball point pen. Use the "bubble" on the lid of a baby food jar. Use a whistle or a flashlight.
