It could be allergies, kennel cough, reverse sneezing, trachea being pressed on, or something else.
Rule out kennel cough first, just to be on the safe side.
What do you use to walk her? Has she ever pulled on a walk and started coughing? If she has then her trachea might have gotten pressed enough to cause the coughing, and once it's irritated a dog will cough even when she's not being walked.. My dog used to get a hacking cough, and at times would cough enough to spit up, and with him it was his trachea. It took me a little over a year to find a harness that fit him, didn't choke him, didn't cause some sort of other problem, and that he didn't mind wearing. Until I did he'd go into coughing fits every now and then.
