Food drive can be helped if they're trained when hungry, if you feed kibble try feeding half the amount and use the other half as a training reward. If you feed RAW just cut back on the amount and use treats, you might have to try more then a few to find one that she likes
Otherwise does she have a favourite toy? Try a small squeaker in your pocket to get snap attention then a tug or whatever high value toy works. Have a very special toy set aside strictly for training which improves the value
Also if a dog is struggling at something you might have to strengthen the basic command, make sure you can get good focus in the house and backyard then build it on the walk. Really reward the good behaviour so she understands what you're expecting her to do
For me, I talk a lot on the walk using praise and very light corrections to keep Delgado in good position, he responds well to my voice so I use it most.
