FRENCH BULLDOG NOSE BUTTER®
FRENCH BULLDOG NOSE TREATMENT AND SUPPORT FOR DRY, CRUSTY NOSES
The French Bulldog has burst upon the dog world in a sudden blast of popularity! Not so surprising for those of us who have lived with these enchanting gremlins for years. When I got my first Frenchie in the early 1990s they were ranked in the 80s in AKC popularity and now they are in the Top Ten. With that popularity comes increased responsibility for those of us who have had these little dogs for decades to share the Frenchie care secrets. Actually, NOSE BUTTER® was born out of a need to control my own French Bulldogs dry noses!
As you may have already discovered, French Bulldogs often have a tendency toward having a rough, dry or crusty nose. Sometimes it is a bit of dryness or dullness to the nose and NOSE BUTTER® will take care of that fast! Or your Frenchie may have crust that covers the whole nose and looks like bark, barnacles or something off Game of Thrones. If this describes your Frenchie’s nose they may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis or Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis. Learn more by clicking the +.
Nasal hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition (¯\(°_o)/¯ medical-speak for they don’t have a clue where it comes from) that causes your dog to create a protein or keratin overgrowth (keratin-more jargon, it just means protein tissue). It is tissue, so it may bleed if you try to pick it off (don’t pick, dogs hate that).
You have not done anything wrong, this is not caused from bad genetics, your dog’s food or water or his love for rooting in the dirt. While it IS a condition, nasal hyperkeratosis can be easily gotten under control and kept under control.
Flat-faced breeds, Bulldog types, toy breeds, the mastiff family and anything with a chunky body type or extreme characteristics seem to have a genetic predisposition toward this condition.
Dry climates, dry heating or a/c and some physical conditions or medications may also aggravate the dryness.
The term condition means this is a chronic issue that can be HEALED but not CURED. The symptoms (the crust) can be gotten under control, and kept under control, but regular maintenance is required. Much as heart worm medicine has to be given or ears cleaned, your dog may require extra nose maintenance attention.
Personally, I feel a slightly depressed or compromised immune system is also one of the causes. Many of the breeds prone to this have extreme characteristics such as flat faces, chunky bodies, are really BIG or really small. It stands to reason that to get such an extreme body type and “look” something is compromised.
NOSE BUTTER® can keep your dog’s nose looking and feeling great with a minimum of expense and trouble. It makes me feel so good that our product has helped tens of thousands of dogs all over the world look and feel better. I’m honored you found us!
WHY IS A MOIST NOSE IMPORTANT FOR A FRENCHIE? ALL MINE SNIFF FOR ARE TREATS!
You are right! Your French Bulldog may sniff out nothing more than that piece of cheese you dropped or the Cheeto that rolled under the sofa. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a need for a healthy nose. Dogs get so much more of their info from sniffing the air than we do, it is hard for us to imagine. The moistness of the skin tissue on their nose (nose leather) acts like dog smelling flypaper and snags all the info-packed scoop that is floating around. If your dog’s nose is rough or dry, it won’t be able to attract all the info.
Think of it as being told to research a subject and not being able to use our computers or phones, nope, no Googling allowed. That is how our dogs feel when they are unable to sniff and get info. Frustrated and maybe a bit helpless.
I truly believe that dogs who have dry noses are at an information disadvantage and it can make them less confident and insecure. Not being able to gather information in the manner dogs have for eons is stressful and exhausting for our dogs. Plus, they lick and lick in a futile attempt to moisten their dry noses. And of course, that just dries their nose out even more. Like us licking chapped lips (you licked your lips just now, I know you did).
NOSE BUTTER® hydrates and moisturizes your Frenchie’s nose and enables them to toss that flat face up in the air and SNIFF. And THAT is why a moist nose is a big deal for our Frenchies. Well, and to better find that Cheeto under the sofa.

JACKPOT! FRENCH BULLDOGS
Enjoy this section in the spirit in which it was intended, sharing my love of this breed. If it veers into humble brag territory, what can I say…guilty!
For decades I bred and showed French Bulldogs under the JACKPOT! kennel name, as I felt I had Hit the Jackpot! when I got my first French Bulldog, CH. Tea-D’s Joker’s Wild Jackpot!
Yes, I was the crazy woman shaking the toy shrieking about something that was incredibly at that moment at the dog show aka Parker Posey in BEST IN SHOW. I laugh and cringe both at some of those memories!
So many wonderful things have happened in my life as a result of my love affair with Frenchies, for which I am always grateful. There were many Number One, Top Ranked Frenchies that came from my breeding program and some Best in Specialty and Best in Show ones. But I am still the proudest of the fact that my beloved and still missed CH. Jackpot! Money Money Money was awarded the very FIRST ROM (Registry of Merit) from the French Bulldog Club of America.
Money was also the sire and I was the breeder of the very first French Bulldog, CH. Jackpot! For the Love of Money to receive an OFA Hip Certification of EXCELLENT. Thank you for allowing me to reminisce, ok and brag a little bit. Money is the brindle boy to the left and his son Lover Boy is with him.
In 2001, I was honored to be asked to write a book for Howell Books (now Wiley) on French Bulldogs. It is still available in Kindle format and in hardback every now and then. Here is a link to AMAZON if you wish to check it out. Thanks for indulging my dance down memory lane.
With the Industrial Revolution, many lace workers immigrated to France, taking the little bulldogs with them. There they crossed the dogs with Pugs, terriers and other small breeds, creating the early French Bulldog. Frenchies became the darling of society and were often seen on the arms of prostitutes as they walked the boulevards of France. As is often the case, fashion traveled upwards and the wealthy soon clamored to have this charming little dog. Many were exported to the United States, where the bat ear was “set” by American enthusiasts. In 1897, the first French Bulldog Club of America specialty show was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Frenchies were all the rage! As many know, a champion French Bulldog, CH. Gamin de Pycombe, owned by Robert W. Daniel, who had bought him in England for the very high price of £150/$700ish was lost on the Titanic and his bereaved owner sued and won for his loss. A Frenchie, Ortino, was the beloved pet of one of the daughters of the Russian Royal family. His remains were found where the entire family was executed.
