Sounds like the natural progression of puppies to me....
I don't think it's to do with the prong though.
Do you call her to you at the dog park, play with her collar (but not put the leash on) WHILE GIVING HER THE TREAT, and then let her go off to continue to play?
It's important that they don't start realizing that coming to us means the fun is over. Cause with a choice between fun, and boring going home, a SMART dog will learn to ignore us and keep having fun. But if we just mean we are a part of the fun (call our dog and they get a rousing game of tug..........then released to go play. or call our dog for a treat and then go back to play.............) then they will keep coming.
