I would think if the right side hurt she would veer to the right.
I use a homemade "chute" to get my dogs to learn to come in straight, you can use anything to make the chute, I've used dial rods taped to the top of cones, ring gates, pieces of wood or pvc, anything that guides the dog to front straight and makes them think twice about veering to the side,
I also never treat with the same hand, and if I'm rewarding with a toy, I've stuffed the toy under the front of my shirt so that the dog knows it's there. and then the toy "falls" out of my shirt to reward the dog.
