Can I use a normal hairdryer to dry my dog?

Yes, with a couple of cautions. First and foremost, you need to keep the nozzle a few inches away from your dog’s fur and the air flow in constant motion, to prevent heat from concentrating on any one spot and burning your pet. You do this naturally when drying your own hair, because you can feel when it’s too hot.
