I would try giving her a high end brand and see if she eats that better, Shiba's are known for developing allergies to corn, wheat and other products in food so trying something without those such as Natural Balance is a good thing to do. If she's still not eating try to mix in a little wet canned food in with her diet, or add a supplement such as showstopper. Other than that the easiest fix is to stop free feeding, if the dog is able to eat whenever she wants she may not eat much at all. I feed my shibas twice a day, morning and evening, that way they eat the whole amount at the time and I know they've eaten it. if they don't eat it, throw it away and they will certainly eat tomorrow. Keep an eye on them to see if they get lethargic, diarrhea or constipated after eating and possibly see a vet if you suspect allergies.
