Yes, keep the treat in hand and hand closed like a fist (this way teeth don't hurt so much and pup learns to engage and not eat hand). Have her smell and follow hand, only if she keeps licking, trying to grab the treat during motion , reward her by opening hand a little so she can nibble/taste the treat, then close fist again for more engagement. If she leaves following hand, push her away and run backwards 2-3 steps to engage her again. Have her follow your hand, not your hand following her.
