Definitely, start hand feeding. Hand feed each meal. Make her work for each bite - a sit, wait, come, whatever - before she gets that handful of food. Trading up means, you exchange something of greater value for something she already has. Example: a piece of meat is higher value than a piece of kibble. If she resource guarded toys, you could trade her a new toy, for the toy she already had. Never take away. Always give. Let her see that your hand only brings good things. Once she has her food, leave her alone. You can ask her to sit and wait, but once she has obeyed and you have released her, she should be allowed to eat. You could toss a treat into her bowl as you walk by, but don't remove anything, or stick you hand in her bowl.
