I use a clicker mostly for obedience training with Bianca. I don't use it in agility (we use 'yes' in class) or for general behavior work very often.
A dog shouldn't end up 'relying' on the clicker even if you use exclusively clicker training, because a clicker is used to teach a new behavior so it is supposed to be faded out during the training process along with the reward.
