|I blow dry both Gus and Grace. Grace is still new to it.
I have a quiet hair dryer (forget the brand) that is a quieter motor so it doesn't hurt your ears. It's for me but I use it on the dogs, as well.
Gus shook when I first started, but now he actually loves it and will fall asleep while being blow dried. Ahhh... what a life
Grace, being a puppy and new to it, shakes when I blow dry her. But I just stay calm and quiet. Some of her shaking is that she is cold (she's a tiny young pup), but some of it is because of the dryer.
We do the same routine each time so she is slowly getting used to it. I also make sure that every time we do a bath - we blow dry. Consistency is best.
They will grow to get used to and even like the hair dryer. Just stay calm, consistent, and try to avoid blowing the air in their eyes or ears. I also always make sure mine isn't too warm.
There are stands you can get that will hold the dryer for you so you can better handle your pup....
