American Staffordshire Terrier Nose Butter® Moisturizes Their Dry Nose

The American Staffordshire Terrier is a strong, smart and sadly, often misunderstood breed. Sometimes confused with their smaller cousins, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, the Am Staff (as they are often called) are their own unique breed. Like many of their bully cousins, the American Staffordshire Terrier often has a tendency toward dry nose issues. Your American Staffordshire Terrier may have a dry nose with just a bit of crustiness or the dryness may be a more extreme version, a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis. (complete info on Nasal Hyperkeratosis below)

Why A Healthy Nose Is Important To Your American Staffordshire Terrier

Your dog's ancestors were used to capture wild boars and control bulls. Ok, let’s stop and think about that…they tracked, chased, and cornered WILD BOARS. Have you ever seen wild boars on the Discovery Channel? And subdue bulls…BULLS!  Bulls AND wild boars! Having a moist nose allows your dog to attract airborne smells and process the info. This gives them the tools needed to guard and protect their family. If your dog can't get important scent info they may become anxious, less confident, and edgy.

Plus, you never know when a wild boar or bull will need to be captured and subdued.

#1 Tip - For quicker absorption warm Nose Butter prior to using
• To warm; stick in your pocket, bra, or scoop some out & warm in palm (see image)
• Open the tin or tube
• Gently control your dog's face (side of face or under their chin)
• Avoid head-locks - that's a trigger for many dogs
• Tag Team - have someone hold & you apply
• (Tin) Scoop a bit out appropriate to the size of your dog’s nose
• Dab it on their nose
• Rub it in a bit, you do not have to rub it in completely as it melts quickly, especially if warm
• Distract to keep them from licking or rubbing it off
• Repeat 2-3x a day for 1-3 days or until nose is back in shape
• Then use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)

• Apply 2-3x a day (do the best you can, 2-3x a day is the goal)
• After 2-3 days of multiple daily applications, gently rub the nose with tissue and see if it easily crumbles off
• If it does NOT crumble right off (it will look like black, greasy dirt), keep applying Nose Butter 2-3x a day until it easily, without picking, comes off
• Resist the urge to pick as tempting as it may be, it hurts and will make the process harder

The crusty stuff is actually skin and hurts your dog if you pick it off, just like us pulling a scab off a skinned knee too soon.

• Give a cookie or treat before, during and after application
• Cuddles, pets, repeat as needed
• Feed their dinner (with extra yummies)
• Play your dog's fave game
• Throw a ball
• Go for a walk
• Pet them, lavish praise on them for their overall good dog-ness
• TIP! Not only does something positive (like cookies) take their mind off having something done to them, they soon equate Nose Butter with treats.

Ouch! That hurt! It's not that your dog loathes Nose Butter (we hope not), they probably DO dislike being held tightly.

Being held in a WWE head-lock is a huge trigger for most dogs. If possible, allow them to stand while you apply Nose Butter and be quick

Additionally, flat-faced dogs will fight and struggle to protect their already hindered ability to breathe.

Toy breeds know they are small and will often put up an unbelievable tussle to get away when they feel over-powered.

Dogs are often triggered by being held tightly. This may come from when they were puppies. Puppy play involves a lot of wrestling and play-fight. It's not fun for dogs (or us) to have siblings pile on, hold us down and make us feel helpless. (I'm looking at my three sisters).

Stay relaxed and positive and be very generous with treats and your dog will soon enjoy, or tolerate, Nose Butter time.

The Bad News is there is no CURE for Nasal Hyperkeratosis, it is a condition and usually life-long.

If you stop using Nose Butter, the dryness and crust will probably come back.

The Good News is maintenance usage of Nose Butter keeps the Nasal Hyperkeratosis under control.

Nose Butter can help heal the dry nose, but doesn't cure the condition. Yes, it's semantics, but it helps make it clear.

When our hands are really cracked and dry we apply lotion to get them in shape, but we can't slather lotion on our hands once and be moisturized for life.

Like cutting your dog's toenails...Nose Butter is part of their health care regimen.

Springer Spaniel Nose Butter

Our eight and half year old E.Springer Spaniel suffers from nasal granularmatosis. We treat it with steroidal cream in the AM & a healthy dose of nasal butter in the PM. It seems to keep her nose almost normal. The moisture & lubrication in the butter seem to help keep Abigail's nose almost normal except for some lost pigment. A very useful product & we plan to continue the regime.

Works great for hyperkeratosis (nose crusties)

I noticed my Brussels Griffon has "crusties" on her nose. After a quick search, found out it was hyperkeratosis, a pretty common condition that BGs can get. I ordered Blissful Dog Nose Butter on the recommendation of another BG owner. While waiting on it's arrival (about 3 days) I rubbed some Castor Oil on her nose. Then I used the Blissful Dog Nose Butter for 5 days. The crusties are completely gone! But my BG still comes for her "makeup" every evening! LOL! Emailed pics.

Our 7 month old GSP pup's nose feels much better with her nose butter. After several attempts. we finally distracted her long enough for it to soak in.

Better than anything I've tried!

I have used almost everything and nothing helped my dogs nose. My dog would get so upset when I would touch her nose. Since using your product my dogs nose looks amazing! She sees me get the little tin and jumps on the couch and waits for me to put it on her nose instead of the old running away and hiding she used to do. I'm a forever customer. It works for my dry hands as well!

Effective Beyond Belief

The Blissful Dog Nose Butter worked so well and so quickly on our fourteen year old ChihuahuaXRat Terrier that I would not have believed it if I hadn’t witnessed it for myself. After only six applications, her nose was transformed and looked like it had when she was young. She seems more comfortable and no more incidents of her nose snagging on fabric. I am sharing my experience of the Blissful Dog Nose Butter with the dog people in my circle including our veterinarian. Easy to order, delivered quickly, economical and, most importantly, effective!

Works Fast and Amazing

I have a St. Bernard and she sticks her nose into the dirt, all the time. This product works fast, and she like the taste when she licks her nose. She is playful, so when she sees the tin she runs, but only onto the couch. I think she does that to get comfortable, lol

Excellent Product

Works great on our Cane Corso. She doesn’t mind this at all because it’s unscented which is perfect! Her nose is looking fabulous! So glad we found Nose Butter!
