not a schutzhund person, but wanted to say, patting her during a scenerio like that can be "reinforcing", I would have just walked away making no big deal out of it.
Second, it's very understandable a dog in a crate is going to react like that, I would never let my dog go up to another dogs crate and investigate/sniff it..Asking for a reaction which you got..
