When you've finished giving your dog his bath, get him dry and warm. Use an absorbent towel to thoroughly dry him off. Quickly wrap the towel around him to prevent getting sprayed by a very wet "shake dry" by your dog. You should rub vigorously and treat the drying process as affection for your pooch.
Blow dry to fluff the fur, or use a specifically designed animal dryer for high performance. Keep your dog warm and out of drafts until he's all dried off.
