We have one dog that loves car rides and one that pukes as soon as you pull out of the driveway.  We have to give him doggie tranquilizers.

Lots of puppies get carsick in moving cars, but fewer adult dogs. Itís likely the immature ear structures of puppies contribute to motion sickness. Human children have this problem, too.

Many puppies take a lot of car rides to places such as dog parks and doggie day care programs. Every trip carries the risk that something will happen to traumatize the puppy about riding in the car. When the dog is getting carsick on each trip, you may get a conditioned effect of nausea associated with the car. Either trauma or conditioning can cause carsickness to continue after the physical reasons for the nausea have been outgrown.

If you have a carsick puppy,as your vet for ways to minimize stress and mess, both now and when the pup is older.
