|Driving or flying?
When I travel with my dog(s) I have food/water dishes, food, bottled water, multiple collars, harnesses, and leashes including a long line, proof of rabies, a couple photos of the dog (in case he gets lost), dog bed, some toys, a few towels, an extra ID tag, a first aid kit, poop bags, and chews like Bully Sticks and antlers.
In the car, it's a good idea (and in some places the law) to have the dog restrained in some way. Because my dogs are large, crates aren't very feasible, so I use a car harness. A long line is handy to have for rest stops so the dog can stretch his legs while still being under complete control since you'll generally be right by a highway. Always keep a collar with ID on just in case. Bringing a bed is nice so the dog can be comfortable during the long hours driving.
If traveling by plane, your dog will need a recent health certificate from your vet and an airline approved crate. Different airlines have different specific requirements beyond that.
