Really? Thanks...that makes me feel better. I'll look into the Blink camera.

Also it's looking like she is fear-aggressive (with strangers, not with me), and she generally just seems to be afraid of a lot of stuff. We have a lot we need to work on, but it's part of why I'm constantly worried I'm not doing things right--there's so much contradictory information out there about everything from correction to counter-conditioning to desensitization. I wish my dog weren't so freaking anxious all the time--and my own anxious personality certainly isn't helping, though I'm working on it. I feel like I'm toeing a thin line between getting her to trust me by being calm and compassionate, and enforcing the rules (which if I do wrong or too forcefully, will send her cowering into her crate as if I've just beaten her).

Ugh. This is hard.
