Bring a favorite fetch toy or whatever Zeeva has an affinity for and when Zeeva is on the way to a "come/front"...chuck it past her..close enough so it is recognized and potentially offers a distraction. Take high value items with you and place them away from you with Zeeva knowing exactly what they are....then try the recall...force Zeeva to make the choice...making the proper choice gets the celebration.
