She is much better now, almost seven years later, but will still occasionally get car sick. We know the signs, my wife holds up a plastic bag, Samantha willingly puts her head in and does her thing. She is a super cooperative dog. Interestingly we have a very large diesel motorhome, that Samantha travels in with us. She has never, not once been sick in the motorhome. Guess the motion is different enough that it doesn't bother her.
Odd that she's fine in the motorhome, but Katie seemed to only get sick traveling north, so who knows... Dogs, man.
Katie doesn't get sick any more, but she is uncomfortable in the car. I can't tell if she's nauseated or stressed.
