Without further training, just keep it exciting for her. Throw the bird a few time is you have to .

Keep a couple in the freezer for her, take them out every once in awhile and thaw them slightly. Then go out and throw them for her. Its all in repitition my friend.

My dog, a setter, gets that way with pheasants sometimes. What I do is take a dead bird and let her play with it a little bit at home, where she's a little more comfortable - that seems to do the trick next time we go hunting. (Don't let them eat it, just play with it a while)

I think that she gets hit with the head or scratched with the claw (not with duck obviously) from time to time and she gets a little nervous.
