I agree with several others - the moment she starts screaming, back to the car. Currently, she thinks that screaming works to get her where she wants to go and that needs to change before the screaming will show improvement.

I was thinking that, too!

I agree with the "turn around the second the screaming starts" approach, and also with CU. A lot of the exercises in CU are about self control/impulse control, which will spill over even if they aren't directly about screaming. The first couple of times it might seem like it takes forever, I'd even be prepared to just leave. Just grit your teeth and keep counting to ten.

Give your dad earplugs and give him a call when you are about to pull in his driveway If your dogs does not scream anywhere else, it is possible that it is getting bad vibes from your dad.

I would also recommend heading back to the car as soon as she starts screaming. If she stops, get out and try again. She screams, back the car.

You might be doing this for a longgggg time, so I'd plan a trip just to work on it - possibly when Dad isn't home.
