Barking/Crying while grooming?

Hey Guys,

So I just ha a quick question. I just gave Luna her second bath and she did ok. She cried a little at first, but then started calming down, somewhat! Lol. When it came time to dry her, (I only have a low power hairdryer) I let her niff it on and off and then I started blow drying her. She started fidgeting and barking at the dryer. Im trying my best here and Im a first time dog owner so I just wanted to know if other dogs do this too! I know it might take some time for her to get used to. Thanks for any advice.

you just have to be patient with her dogs try to either get away from the dryer or attack it if if they dont like it you just need to carry on with the drying even if she kicks up a fuss she should learn to accept it as part of her life and realise nothing bad is going to hurt her

make sure u have the dryer on cool at first so u dont burn the skin ideally you should be brushing the areas you are drying as well

i oftern find that wrapping a small towel around the ears like a grannys scarf they wear around there heads blocks out some of the noise and they carm down

sometimes we do need to be firm with dogs even if they are young
