Yeah, keep your weight on your back foot. Lean away from her. Get a longer line too, more like 12'. Its easier if you aren't right up close to her, back just a little bit from where you are.
Are you cradling her before you out & kick the wedge?
I wouldn't recommend the longer line. Folks tend to show up with way too long a line and the dog can get way too much space to roam, back up and charge, etc.
