Miley's frenzy!

Miley, my nearly two year old Cairn Terrier is the most hyper dog I've ever owned. She has to have a collar and harness attached to her leash since she can escape so easily.
In the car, I attach her to her seat belt, a clip attached to the seat belt strap and often she will screech and scream, growing more and more frenzied during the car ride, although she gets a ride every day, to walk in the surrounding parks in our area.
It is out of the question to open the car window, since she will hurl herself over the door, dangling out into traffic, still attached to her seat belt until I reach around and pull her back in.
I need help keeping her calm during our ride so that she doesn't break my Scottish Terrier, Smitty's or my ear drums with her racket!

I thought our animals were to bring us peace of mind, joy while letting them know you are the leader of your chosen pack. If you don't take the lead, they become anxious and confused, not to mention ill mannered. Try it.

Yes, it's easy to judge, but she's had extensive training to no avail. She is a rescue, evaluated by a vet behaviorist, who recommended putting her down. Not everyone fits your description. Some dogs are simply a challenge, no matter who owns them.
