Yes, stop the session. At that age your training sessions should be no more than 5 min at time several times a day and should be lots of fun fun fun. Use games as the reward and throw some commands in there.

For example, ask for a sit and throw the ball as a reward. When she brings it back as for "drop" and a treat reward. Now ask for a down and throw the ball as a reward. Saying something like "yes" to mark that she did it right.

A 17 week old puppy is like expecting a 2 year old human to sit in a classroom and do nothing but learn for hours at a time.
