How amazing she can sense your having a seizure. I have read about dogs and some cats being able to detect those kind of things.
As for the music, I might suggest something soothing rather than metal or techno... Just thinking of keeping the energy calm - music with a lot of drive can put people on edge and your dog will probably pick up on that.
As for trust: Im not sure if the baby gate represents trust or no trust. Its more about your attitude towards her - I imagine like most dogs she picks up on your energy - if you dont trust her she may have doubts in general. So set yourselves up for success by knowing her limits and keeping things to where you know she can succeed with confidence.
Speaking for myself and my dog: I believe Baileymoon is ready to stop being crated when she is fully house trained. To me house trained means can be unsupervised in any part of the home with out chewing on forbidden items, relieving herself, or getting into trouble (getting into the garbage, jumping onto furniture, chasing the cat, and any house rules you want to apply to your dog.). Basically when she is good with the house rules, she is good to go. But six months seems pretty young to know all the ins and outs so maybe some more time.... you will have to judge that for yourself.
I hope this is helpful for you!! Best of luck with your pup!!!
