The Power of the Release

Somebody in here taught me the benefit of capturing a dog's anticipation....So, how do I take that intensity of a dog awaiting a release ...completely obedient.......quivering almost in anticipation....and apply that to lesser tasks of obedience and general behavior? Not that there is any specific behavior or issues in mind.....just an overall ability to generate that type of hyped desire.

Changes of pace, quick stops, pause yourself like a statue, then you jump out of position with the release. Stare her in the eye's and slowly count, 1,2, 3, release. Then 1,2, release. Then don't look at her and count. Just capture attention and use your body language to keep her guessing. Changes in your delivery of commands. Short and sharp, followed by drawn out.
