How to Dry a Dog After a Bath: Towels

To dry your dog after a bath, you should have at least one towel near the tub. If your dog is large, you may have to use two or three towels to start the drying process. You need to use absorbent towels, so you may want to pick up some microfiber towels you’ll use only for drying off your pet.

Many dog owners rub their pets vigorously with a towel after bathing their dog, but that’s not the best technique. Starting with your dog’s head and working backward to their tail, you should use a towel to gently squeeze water out of their hair. Just as you should go from head to tail, you should work from your dog’s backside down to their belly, legs and paws as you dry them off.

How to Dry a Dog After a Bath: Dryers

The key to using a dryer on your dog is to understand that it’s the airflow, not the heat that will remove excess water from your dog’s coat. You also have to use caution when you dry your dog with a force dyer, taking care to never point the nozzle toward your dog’s face, ears or genitals.

Place the nozzle of the dryer just above your dog’s skin. Move the nozzle back and forth in short strokes so that your dog feels like you’re giving a massage as you’re drying them off. As you move onto other parts of your dog’s coat, sections you’ve already blown off may get wet again, so you may have to go back over areas where you already used the dryer.

The 5 Steps to Dry Your Dog After a Bath:

Before you break out the hair dryer, start by getting a good towel. The towel should be absorbent, with microfiber towels working best, and large dogs might need several towels. Don’t dry your dog’s fur by rubbing back and forth—this can be uncomfortable for your dog and tangle the fur. Instead, use the towel like a squeegee. Starting at your dog’s head, squeeze out excess water from the fur a few inches at a time. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can so that your dog is no longer dripping wet.

How to Dry a Dog After Bathing (Quick and Hassle-free Way)

If you bathe a dog at home, youre going to need to know how to dry a dog as well. It may sound like common sense to you, but there is more than one way to accomplish this task. It can be daunting, especially if your pup has long or thick fur. Nevertheless, you must always dry your pet.

There are two main ways to dry a dog: with a dog towel or a pet dryer (or hairdryer). I suggest starting with a towel and gradually introducing your pet to a pet dryer or hairdryer. Most dogs will be timid of the noise that pet hair dryers produce, thereby making your grooming session and drying process harder.
