Default No enthusiasm when searching for articles

I am a total novice GSD owner (have done TV and film work with previous dogs so not new to dogs), and decided to play about with doing scent work with my 18mth GSD bitch. She's incredibly ball obsessed and I used to hide her favourite ball and she would go crazy sniffing it out. I've been trying to get her to move on to sniffing out my car keys and indicating rather than picking them up and using the ball as a reward. She's done really well and paws then sits next to the keys when she finds them but she's pretty unenthusiastic about it. No where near as excited as she used to get when searching for her ball. Have I messed up in the training and if so how can I fix it?
