Dog not interested in treats during walks

What are some other ways I can reward our GSD for following directions during a walk? She often gets bored of her treats after 10 minutes. I have tried bringing 2-3 different types of treats to change it when she loses interest; I've used an excited voice; I've used petting at times as well. Clicker training didn't make a difference for her. I've thought about bringing a toy but not sure if that would be counter-productive.
Also, she generally walks 3-4 feet ahead of me at all times until I call her back to my side...I treat her....then she walks ahead of me again. I'm trying to prevent this for therapy dog training so she will stay by my side.
Any tips?
