If the dog is dropping the tug/sleeve you can try having the helper/decoy attach a line to it. Once the dog wins it keep some tension with the line and every so often make it come back to life. The dog will learn to cary it a little better until told to out.
I hope this makes sense. It is easier to demonstrate than to describe.
Makes sense to me. They've been talking about trying that with Duke soon.
