The first time KoKo got a bath she was scared but calm at the same time. She didn't start shaking until I took her out of the water. She wasn't scared of the blow dryer she just was so cold I felt it's got to be a warmer way. But I'ma buy her some pjs to sleep in if she keeps them on or likes them.

Make every thing a good thing. I have a Jack Chi that has long hair and if I don't brush out his ears and dry them he gets knots so bad he has to have them cut out. Treats worked for me with the bath. He knows right before and right after he gets a cookie so its not so bad. The same with brushing. Have someone give him treats as you brush him. I uses beggin strips and break them up so he gets several treats out of just one. He will eventually accept the brush as a good thing and you can start to ween him off the treats. As far as the hair dryer, introduce it to him first then introduce the sound. I would do this at a time you don't need the hair dyer because it may take a while and can get frustrating when you have a wet dog running around. When he is okay with the sound blow him with it a little, treats can be used here too. He will eventually come around.
