Default Have you ever seen a dog that dries himself?

And I mean dry completely in 5mins! I gave my sister's Yorkie a bath today and he was a good boy, then I put him down on a rug while I got a towel, and he went crazy drying himself, but his technique was right on and he was actually drying himself fast.
I thought it was so funny, he really doesn't like how it feels to have wet hair I guess. I've seen dogs shake it off, or roll on their back a bit, but he would lay on one side and spin in circles rubbing his body on the rug like he was swimming sideways, and he did that for every part of his body even his face and head LOL. The funniest part was at the end, when he was completely dry, he sat on his booty and scooted forward with his forward paws so fast, and he went a long way across the floor not just in circles like I've seen Cici do sometimes, he was going full speed! LOL!!

I guess he has perfected his techniques over time. When he was a puppy I remember my sister used to blow dry him, and I never noticed when this happened but now she doesn't have to blow dry him.

I made sure Cici was watching so maybe she could learn a little, but no luck, she prefers mommy to blowdry her while she just sits there looking pretty and pretending I'm her servant lol.

Haha, love it! Gustave dries his face. I always got concerned thinking he must be trying to scratch an itch but now we have realized he does the sideways swimming thing whenever his face/head is wet.

LOL! Obi likes to bulldoze his face across the couch to dry it! Your sister's yorkie sounds like a smart pup

Gustave is a smart puppy


Deborah, Cici is like that too, she will just stay there wet, she won't even dry her face, I feel like I need to get down on the floor and show her how to do it! LOL


Pam, I do! I'll have to bathe him again just to take a video lol. I kept trying to take one with my phone but darn phone kept restarting whenever I tried to use the camera.


Marisa I was imagining Obi doing that and it's so cute it made me smile haha.

Gus dries himself. All I have to do is lay a towel on the floor.... he's almost all dry within minutes....

Grace tries to follow her big brother but only manages to get everything wet LOL
