What I've learned is that you should start by blowing everything the opposite way that it grows, to get a lot of the water out, and go back and forth a few times, if they're completely wet. Then, once more 'damp' then wet, you go in sections, starting from the back, first blowing against the growth of the coat and moving in little up and down motions (idk if this makes sense but I'm trying lol), and then doing the same thing in the same section, starting from the back of the dog, but blowing with the coat to get everything to lie flat.
I've mostly done this for showing, so don't know how practical this is for at home. With my own dog, he hates the dryer (didn't introduce it soon enough) so it's difficult to dry him well and I mostly just try to blow what I can out of his coat, towel him again, and then brush it so it looks nice.
