Crate lined with a large towel
Several clean replacement towels in case of accidents
A couple of rolls of kitchen paper
Plastic grocery bags and large Ziploc bags to store dirty towels/used kitchen paper until you find a garbage can
Puppy pee pads (to put on the ground in places you're not sure of, and for use in public bathrooms)
A damp facecloth in a Ziploc bag, to clean the pup if he soils himself or throws up
A pack of baby wipes to clean stains
Two bowls, water and food (same food as the breeder was using)
A plush toy as a comfort item in the crate
Something to chew: not rawhide or anything that the pup might swallow (stuffed Kong, Nylabone, etc., would be good)
A tug toy to play with the pup
If you're staying overnight in a hotel:
A fleece throw or blanket to put on the hotel bed in case of accidents
A second fleece throw or blanket to put on the hotel carpet in case of accidents
A treat bag - always keep some kibble handy, to reward him or prevent tantrums
A collar and leash. The leash should be fairly short: 4' or 6' maximum
A tag engraved with your cell phone number and home phone number, on the pup's collar
A change of clothes for each human in the car, even if you're not staying overnight, in case the pup pees or throws up on you
That should cover it! The fun thing about travelling by car is that you have room for all this stuff. I brought Duster home on a plane, and I had a mini version of this list in my carry-on backpack. I used some of almost everything.

My dog of a lifetime. I'll miss you forever.
