Default Advice!! Found a 1/million apartment that might work.. But..

Okay so in this thread Advice needed: Want an apartment, I have SA dog who barks, not sure what to do! I was concernred about her barking with the neighbors.. I may be able to get this other apartment. Its upstairs to a milking parlor. There is an office next to the apartment but with the machinery on, he probably would hardly be able to hear Zelda bark..

My concern is because of her fear aggression to strangers, would she go down hill? I would be living on a farm. There are quite a few workers, but its nothing like the town walks we do at least once in day. She has gotten to the point where people even going towards us (to get into their cars) or people across the road she will even look away from.. Whereas before she would have to bark even lunge. So i'm worried that basically this would be isolating her I would love to be able to still go into town to do town walks.. But i dont know how often i can dedicate that a week! Maybe once or twice? So that is my biggest concern along with money but thats a different story of course!

I just really need to move out and this apartment is the first apartment that i can barely afford, where Zelda will not bother anyone probably, and is 15 minutes from my work. So.. if i can get it. Should i take it?

My thought is that, Zelda is probably genetically fear aggressive, although she has improved and can still improved it will always be there.. I just don't want her to fall back, i always want her to keep moving in the forward direction with all of her behavioral problems and i dont ant to set her up for failure on this one.

Thanks for letting me ask a personal question!
