Yes! You can let her know this is wrong by holding her still and using some words to explain, but don't make a big deal of it or she will think its funny and then she will do it more!!! At 17 months, noone should expect otherwise, they are learning to communicate with a limited vocabulary and don't have the impulse control to stop or the empathy to understand they are hurting others ....your response to the situation is really the best in social firm but loving and consistant...she will begin to understand you do not approve of this...of course it is perfectly normal for her to continue doing it to see your reaction!!
