It's been many years since I had a pup but there's a few
things I did that helped quite a bit.
First of all, WIDE, SLOW turns. My pup used to get sick when
daddy drove, but not when I did.
Let the pup stay as far to the front of the car as possible.
Make sure there's fresh air available, either crack a window
Short trips to start. I did a couple blocks, went and got a
newspaper at the Quik Mart or something.
Some people try ginger snaps. Don't feed too much, but totally
empty might just get you a pool of bile.
Make it a fun thing, use your happy voice. Like KZoppa said,
just sit in it a few minutes with it running. If even that proves
to be too much, heck take a book and some treats out there
and just hang out for a bit, slowly increasing time and THEN
starting car. Don't jump ahead too fast, and return to start
if you have a problem.
Getting some age on your pup is probably what will help the
