If you are teaching him drop it when playing fetch or playing with a toy, why do you need to have separate treats?

I would use the toy you are playing with to reward the dog! If he wants to chase the ball, get him to 'drop it' when he brings it back, give some verbal praise and then reward him by throwing it again.

The same when you are playing with a toy - I do it when I am playing tug with my beagle. I use the command 'give', and 'ok'. I say 'ok' to signify that she can grab the toy and while she is tugging, I say give. When she releases I say good girl!! and then ok to reward her with more tugging.

Hope that makes sense...
