Some puppies never get car sick, some outgrow it, and unfortunately, a few never do. For those, Dramamine (if drowsiness isn't a problem) or Bonine can help. I have a friend with a show bitch, who had to give her Bonine every time she got in the car. It's not sedating, so she was still up and ready to show when she arrived.
For SOME dogs, there is a psychological component. Especially if the owners avoid taking the dog places because of the motion sickness, and set up a cycle where the only time the dog is put in the car is to go somewhere they don't like. (Like the groomer or vet) this is easy to prevent, with lots of short rides to fun places, like class to a play date or for a walk in the woods.
