so, you are trying to get Evie to shut the door with her nose, not her paw, is that it? and Evie is only touching it, or only moving it just a lil bit, instead making door shut, is that it? IF that is it, mayyybe, try opening the door only 1/2 to 1 inch, or less, so that almost ANY touch by Evie = the door shuts. Give prizes when the door shuts. Then, after Evie has been shutting the door for only 1/2 inch open, then do 1 whole inch open, then slowly graduate to 2 inches open, and so on?? and slowly add one more inch to how open the door is? for Evie to shut it... in short, maybe rewarding not the pushing, but instead, reward the door shutting?? and THEN add in the pushing, after Evie has understood the door has to shut to get a prize. .........???
