I have crated all my pups on trips. I had to go from Kentucky to Florida twice with a Giant Schnauzer pups I purchased. Both did fine and would go potty outside when I stopped. Had another pup that actually learned how to hold really good on a trip in a kennel. Be sure to put one of your dirty shirts in the kennel so the puppy can have your scent to cuddle with and not just paper or detergent smell.. Set the kennel so you can see in while you are driving. If you can see in then the pup will be able to see you.

A lot of puppies get car sick...so I would confer with a vet to see about do you feed him before....at a rest stop....etc. Lots of paper towels and Fantastic and water for him.... Depending on how long the trip do you want a carsickness script/meds for him??? I used to get car sick and OMG....it was torture...
