She will probably get better. Make it as safe, warm and inviting a time (lots of treats) as possible. Hugs, good girl, try a smear of cream cheese on the side of the sink for her to lick. Let her run like hell afterward. If you put a towel on the floor she will roll around in it, run like hell, and get fairly dry. Then try the blow dryer with that cream cheese on the table. It should work for about 5 minutes of quiet. It is important to get her hair combed out after the bath to prevent mats, especially on her neck and legs.
Lola likes to play with my blow dryer when I do my own hair, so it has turned into a thing she likes. It has taken her a year to get used to the bath. She futzes around a bit, but I keep the water warm and she likes the spray nozzle on her back and legs. All I can say is keep at it, and power through the whining. Because there ain't no way around Hav bath time! Good luck.
