Hi Llyles,

You can try a a couple of drops of alcohol which can help dry up trapped water in the ear. However, usually a head shaking movement indicates an ear infection. So if the head shaking continues, you will need to have your dog seen so appropriate medication can be given to clear up the infection. I hope this information is helpful to you.
