Forgive me, I forget if your dog is already trained or if you are training 
now. Are you just trying to add more precision while getting used to clicker 
What I did with Thane though was I worked on just one aspect at a time so 
that one was trained already and the other was where the click and treat 
came in.
I broke it down into portions working with sits and downs first once those 
were understood I added come but in its own training session separate from 
the sit. When everything was solid by itself only then did I ask for the 
second command (which in your instance is the sit) together. By this time he 
was ready to combine the two aspects- come and sit chained together for one 
click and the treat. Take things slowly. Its much better for them to be 
really solid on each individual task first than to back up and start all 
over later.
