I've tried a couple different things.

I've showed her the treat/toy and repeated the word/motion.
I've repeated the word/motion.
I've tried to wait her out.
I've stared at her.
I've looked away, paying no mind to her.
I've taken the treats, put them in the bag, and went and sat down, ending the training session.

That's pretty much where I'm stuck.

My previous dog, the worlds most stubborn Sheltie, did something like this. Basically if he knew the command he wasn’t interested in doing it unless highly motivated to. He was extremely smart, way to smart for his own good. We found if we taugh him new things regularly and occasionally mixed in old tricks, this seemed to keep him interested. Or we taught him other words for the same trick. Basically we used different languages for sit, etc. You may also try switching up your treats, something even more rewarding. While this isn’t exactly a training technique, you might try changing your tone in how you give the command. If I pretended I was overly happy about a command my Sheltie was more likely to do it than if I just asked. Best of luck and keep us updated.

I posted them! They're up a couple responses.

I cooked up a steak tonight and cubed half of it, it's in the fridge for tomorrow so we'll see what she thinks of that!

I like what everyone is saying regarding make it more interesting to keep engagement, and up the ante on rewards....smart dogs can get it in their heads they're getting short changed.
Not to hijack the thread.....but when one of my dogs does what the op is describing, I usually stop what I'm doing right then and just walk away and put the toys away. No reward for not doing it right. Then change up the way I'm doing it next time- different game, better reward etc. This has worked for me, but is there a better/different method anyone else uses rather than cutting off play/training right then?

Apologies if you posted and I missed this... does she have any toy drive? Incorporating a tug or ball as a reward may make training sessions more fun and keep her more engaged.
