I did basically what Steve explained. But my dog knows the wait command. I would calmly say 'wait' (and used a hand signal) and then when I released him, he dropped the object (it was his toys). I'm not training him for sport - I'm just adding more useless parlor tricks to his resume. We are now working on "Take it to....."
