Toy Bully

Question:

My Jack is a toy bully...he's 17 months and a neutered male. He loves to play, however, when he retrieves the toy he doesn't drop it. Instead we end up in a tug of war...which I have learned not to encourage, due to the dominance factor. The "drop it" command doesn't work, because when I say "drop it", he assumes he's done something wrong. So he spits out the toy and pouts until he's ready to play. Any suggestions how I may break this cycle with him?
(I love this forum and your suggestions, very helpful.)
