Old dog can’t handle post bath zoomies ​​

My childhood dog is getting pretty old, and he gets these weird "seizures" when he gets overstimulated. The vet said to not worry too much, that it might be vertigo and there isn't really much we can do about them, especially at his age. It's not a problem most of the time, but now baths are problematic, because he has little seizures when he go's all zoomie post bath. Any suggestions on how to stop the zoomies? He has never had much trouble with baths, he doesn't really like them, but he doesn't hate them either.

[Discussion] When dogs involuntarily shake their leg when scratching a certain spot, do they actually enjoy that scratch or should you move to a different spot? via /r/dogs

I’ve looked it up before and all I can find is that it’s a involuntary reflex, but nothing about whether they actually enjoy the scritch as much as a scritch in a spot that doesn’t make their leg shake. My thought process now is that the involuntary reflex is because they actually needed that spot scratched because it was itchy, but I wonder if that is incorrect and they actually don’t like it as much because the shaking reflex is annoying.
