Clicker Training?

So with my puppy have been doing some reading and using a clicker has been one of the themes for training. Anyone else actually tried this and did it work? He is such a bundle of energy.

I've never tried it with a puppy, but we've had good success with it for older dogs that we've rescued. When we first started, I was able to find a lot of 'how to' videos on line which were very helpful. For a puppy, though, I'd keep the training sessions very, very short--puppies have terrible attention spans!
