Do I blow dry him if he’s scared? Air dry for now?

It’s often times the noise that scares them. You can try to create a conditioned emotional response for Norman about the blow dryer sound by having it on and giving him treats. Have it on throughout the day doing various things not only associated with a bath time event. He will start to look forward to that because he will associate it with treats. Then you can add in the actual air from the blow dryer but farther away then what would be useful for drying him and slowly Decrease the distance while giving treats. This is called a conditioned emotional response to something that they generally wouldn’t like such a nail clipping. Think Pavlov’s dogs!
