8. The most important thing is to click accurately (good timing is KEY), but remember that the dog keeps learning after the click as well. With some behaviors you can achieve faster results by being conscious of how you deliver the reward. This is called "reward placement". This can be particularly useful at the beginning of training. But don’t get dependent on a particular reward placement forever. Once you’ve got the behavior, you should start to proof it, so that the dog is able to perform the behavior correctly no matter where the rewards are coming from.
