  1. Poor guy! One of the first things you should try is t make the car ride more comfortable- make sure you are facing forward and looking out a window. Another thing worth trying is getting to the root of the carsickness and trying to train it out (by making it a fun and positive experience). There are some great tips here- http://www.cesarsway.com/dog-behavior/dog-anxiety/Carsick-and-Vomiting-Dog-Problem
