Is Your Greater Swiss Mountain Dog's Nose Rough, Dry or Even Cracked?

The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a classically handsome dog with a striking tricolor coat, balanced body type, and gentle demeanor. Though, of course, you probably have answered the question, "Is that a short-haired Bernese Mountain Dog?" a million times. Amirite?

Like their cousin, the Bernese Mountain Dog, many Swissies also suffer from a dry or crusty nose. This can be just a bit of dryness to an extremely dry nose with overgrown tissue covering it, called Nasal Hyperkeratosis. The good news is Nose Butter® treats all levels of dog nose dryness for your Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. More info below.

Nose Butter Scoop

These large and giant breeds are more prone to Nasal Hyperkeratosis.

You can see the Large Breeds with heavier heads, somewhat chunkier or shorter noses and more pendulous jowls are more prone to Nasal Hyperkeratosis.

In over 20 years we've had a scant few customers with many oif the larger Terriers request labels.

Bigger Bully Breeds

• American Bulldog
• American Staffordshire Terrier
• Boxer
• Bulldog
• Olde English Bulldoggee

Note from Kathy: Some on the list are not what I consider Large or Giant, but then my Tili is 170#. I included Large-ish Breeds also.

#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 your best)
• After 2-3 days of 2-3x daily usage, gently rub their nose with tissue and see if the crust crumbles off easily
• If it doesn't immediately crumble off without much effort, keep applying Nose Butter 2-3x a day and testing until it crumbles off
• It will look like greasy, black dirt
• One last caveat - Do NOT Pick! It will be tempting, but don't give in
• One more - TREATS!

The crusty stuff is actually skin and hurts your dog if you pick it off or at it. Plus, it's annoying to them and you want this to be as pleasant as it can be.

• Give a cookie or treat before, during and after Nose Butter application
• Shower your dog with cuddles, pets, repeat as needed
• Feed their dinner (with extra yummies)
• Play your dog's fave game
• Throw a ball - if that's their jam
• Go for a fun walk
• Pet them, lavish praise on them for their overall good dog-ness
• You know your dog better than anyone, find their hot button (why do I suddenly crave oatmeal raisin cookies?)
• 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 burn is gonna leave a mark! It's not that your dog loathes Nose Butter (we sure hope not), but they probably DO hate being controlled while being held tightly.

A Hulk Hogan (oops, aged myself) WWE style head-lock is a huge trigger for most dogs. If possible, allow them to stand freely while you apply Nose Butter and be fast, a quick dab will do it.

Additionally, flatter-faced dogs will fight and struggle to protect their already compromised breathing.

This fear trigger of being held tightly may come from when they were puppies. Puppy play involves a lot of wrestling, holding each other down and play-fighting. It's not fun for dogs (or us) to have siblings pile on, hold us down and make us feel helpless while they tickle your feet. (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.

Nose Butter can heal the dry nose, it doesn't cure the condition. Yes, it's semantics, but we believe in keeping expectations real.

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. Experiment a bit, your dog may need Nose Butter 1-2x a week for maintenance or daily.

As our dogs get older the frequency will rise. They will probably need daily applications as they get into senior years.

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.

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!

My cockers had badly chapped and cracked noses. One application of Nose Butter and problem solved. Now only need it once a week to keep things nice.

YES! That is the kind of news we love to hear! Cockers have more dry nose issues than is fair. We're thrilled yours are doing well. Thank you so much for taking time to leave us a review. We appreciate each one!

Best there is!

We have been using this product for years. It is the best at keeping our dog’s nose from drying out. Can’t give this enough stars!

Thank you so much! We love hearing from our customers who have been with us for years. It reminds us that what we do matters, as dogs like yours look and FEEL better with our products! Thank you again and give your Swissie extra pets and maybe a treat ;-D from us!

Blissfully!

seems to work

appears to work but the tins are so small I'm gonna use it up before the issue is healed. my fault since I ordered the sample tins. my dog appears to like as he licks it after applied

Glad to hear the products are working! The Combo kits are designed to be a trial run for bigger dogs or as a way to try most of the butter products. Smaller dogs will of course, get more applicationms. People always ask us why we offer eight size of Nose Butter, etc. and we tell them 'Because dogs come in all sizes.' For dry noses and elbow calluses we openly share that Nose Butter and Elbow Butter will relieve the symptoms, but there will have to be maintenance.

Hopefully you got a brochure in the container, it should cover all of the usage info. We do everything we can think of to share the sizes, etc in a reasonable way, but I will look at the Combo Kit listing again to be sure. What issue does your Lab have? Elbow Calluses?

Great product for my Golden Retriever's nose!

I have been using Nose Butter for several years now, and it made an immediate difference the first time I tried it. My dog's nose was falling off in little chunks due to dryness, and felt like 40 grit sandpaper. The nose butter quickly added needed mositure to his nose, and I used it daily without fear of using too much. His nose quickly became soft and grew back normally. Since there is no cure for his nose problem, I have been using nose butter ever since, and it does a great job.

You absolutely made our day! The 40 grit sandpaper is a new description for me, but I will be using it. Golden Retriever's are such classically beautiful dogs with those sweet, sweet faces, a dry nose is not allowed. I'm so glad you found us and your boy is doing well! Thank you again, this is the way I love to start my day! -Kathy

Nose butter

I doubt it’s going to get rid of the overgrowth on their noses but it is softening it, and the color has darkened back up. One or two licks, and they leave it alone to do it’s moisturizing.

Give it a few more days! From one dog to the next there will be different times as to how quickly they shed that nasty overgrowth. What we've noticed (not scientific) is the dogs with short/flat faces seem to get rid of it faster than dogs with classic nose lengths. Dogs like your Cockers with their elegant faces may take a wee bit longer. Keep at it and let us know how they do! - Kathy
