The way I was taught to use clicker training from Fidelco was to actually 
teach a command. You're  correct that clicker training rewards for desirable 
behaviors. My trainer told me to use the "shush" command. When my dog was 
quiet after I said "shush" she got a click and a treat and a "good shush". I 
did this many times a day.  With consistancy, it worked, and she now is as 
quiet as a fieldmouse.  I also use clicker training for the "find" command 
and new behaviors she hasn't learned yet.
