    If you crate them in the vehicle you can leave the windows open, notice the thermometer in the second vehicle:

    My thoughts are, if you can't be in the same room as the pup to keep an eye on it, it should be either crated or kennelled.
    X 2 and should be crated while travelling in a vehicle for their safety and theirs.

    crate trained best, my guy loved his crate, we would leave gate open when not in use, we would find him sleeping in it on his own. I used the command kennel to get him in, and I still use the command kennel for everything I want him to get into, boat truck car, crate. Exercise big part. I would work him every morning, come home at lunch work (15min) and after work. Than walk after supper. We still do this process 8yr later. I also think the use of bells good. I would hang a string of small cow bells by door and I would ring in beginning and he would ring on own when he wanted out. Saved a lot of watching as we would get busy and not notice he was by door. Also train him to go PEE on command, that helps when you need to get in truck and go somewhere. I tell him PEE every we go to get in truck, even if he has just been out. It funny to watch him try even though he is empty, but he still tries.

    Other than that everything mentioned works

    I'm a big believer in making dogs used to and happy in the crate & the kennel.
    Re taking the dog everywhere, I agree up to a point. It depends on the dog. I think a high flyer would benefit from this, as it would decrease the intensity of excitement of going training. Dogs that are not so intense, benefit from less stimulation, prior to training.
    No doubt though, that there is a great advantage to intense bonding. Probably more so with females than males.
