Brittany Spaniel NOSE BUTTER® Healthy, Handcrafted Treatment for Your Dog's Dry Nose
Not only is the Brittany the quintessential hunting and field dog, they are also one of the perfect family dog. Loving, gentle, yet still active and ready for fun on the spur of the moment!
Your Brittany's Dry Nose
While your Brittany may never see a bird in the field (or a field for that matter), he is still genetically predisposed to sniff to get info. All dogs use their nose for sniffing out the facts, but those bred to do a certain job even more so.Your Brittany even more than many dogs needs to be able to sniff out the info.
Brittany dogs often have a rough, dry or crusty nose. For most Brittanys, it is a bit of dryness or a ridge of a thicker crusty tissue at the top of the nose. Some may even suffer from an extreme form of dryness called Nasal Hyperkeratosis, which results in the nose tissue growing in layers of crusty, scab-like skin all over the nose.
The good news is Brittany Nose Butter works on all types of dog nose dryness from just a bit to extreme nasal hyperkeratosis.
Your Brittany's Healthy Nose
If your Brittany's nose is rough, dry or even crusty they will struggle to capture the info floating by. The moist surface of a healthy dog nose grabs the scent particles and sends them to the various parts of your Brittany's brain dedicated to smell bookmarking (really!). A dry nose interferes with their sniffing ability, which can also lead to a feeling of being anxious, unsettled or on edge.
You know the feeling of seeing No Service on your phone when you REALLY need directions? That is how your Brittany feels when they can't get their info
Nose Butter smooths and nourishes your Brittany Spaniel's nose with layers of healing butters and oils. Not only does your dog look much better with a smooth, shiny nose, they feel better as they can breathe more easily. Plus, your Brittany will feel more confident and self-assured when they're getting the info needed to make informed decisions.

How To Best Use Nose Butter® Info & Video
HOW TO APPLY NOSE BUTTER
- For ease of application and faster absorption put tin or tube in your pocket for a few minutes to warm it
- TIN Scoop a bit out with finger or spoon and warm in your palm before application for faster absorption
- DAB on dog's nose
- DISTRACT to keep them from licking it off (give treat, feed dinner, go for walk)
- REPEAT 2-3x daily for 1-3 days or until there is improvement
- Use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)
- Products have no active ingredients and will not harm your dog if they lick some off. But we do want the product to get it's work done, so see distract tips
- Complete tips, hints & directions brochure is included with every order
FYI: Our balms have a very thick, stiff consistency, because your dog's nose is very thick skin tissue. If it were a fluffy cream, it would not work.
Distraction Tips - Look Squirrel!
- Like pulling off a bandaid - Apply FAST
- Give treats before, during and after application, if needed
- Peanut butter on a wooden spoon is a great trick
- Feed their dinner after application
- Play your dog's fave game
- Throw a ball or go for a walk
- Pets and cuddles are always good
Keeping Expectations Real
Every so often a customer tells us their dog doesn’t “like” the Nose Butter, etc. Some dogs just do not like being controlled, messed with, having their faces touched or anything done to them. We get it! Sometimes our dogs do NOT want to be messed with, restrained or have their faces touched. They will flip, fight, twist and turn and some of the dogs have the audacity to wipe the product off on the sofa or their owner's leg!
Your dog may not “like” having Nose Butter applied. They may not like going to the vet or getting their toenails trimmed. Just like most of us don't like going to the dentist, but we go. Sometimes we have to do something for our dog's well-being…cutting toenails, giving meds, cleaning ears, going to the vet, or applying Nose Butter, etc. If your dog struggles, make the process FASTER and reward lavishly. This may be one of those situations in which you have to be firm with your dog, again, for the greater good.
Application Tips for Wiggly, Uncooperative, Licking Dogs
How to Apply Nose, Paw, Elbow and Boo Boo Butter To Wiggly, Uncooperative, Licking, Twisting, Flipping Dogs
We feel your pain. Some of us have dogs that are less than cooperative when it comes to anything being done to them. It is not that they don't like the products themselves, they just don't want anything done to them. Period. For those dogs here are a few tips and tricks, but may we remind you...you are the person and sometimes we have to do what is for our dog's own good…like going to the vet, having toenails cut and maybe having Nose Butter put on their nose.
- Let your dog lick peanut butter off spoon while you apply
- Try strong smelling treats - goat cheese, tuna, fishy treats
- Tag team! One give treats or pet while the other applies
- Go for a walk, throw a ball
- Dab on while they sleep - sneaky!
- Be FAST! Dab! Distract! Done!
Additional Tips for Flat-Faced Dogs, Lickers and Carpet Rubbers
Flat-faced dogs often resist application, as their breathing is already compromised. Apply as quickly as possible and don’t hold your flat-faced dog tightly, as this often makes them struggle more. This goes for Toy Dogs also, they know they're small and don't want to held tightly for fear of being hurt.
DISTRACTION - BE TENACIOUS
First be sure you are warming the product to the point of melted before application. It will soak in much faster if almost there when you apply.
Distracting dogs that are determined to lick the product off (or rub it off on furniture) may take some tenacity on your part. Treats, walks, throwing a ball or just petting them may work. Think of anything your dog loves and use that on them for the ten minutes or so needed. Stick to it...it’s for your dog’s well-being.

Nasal Hyperkeratosis Info - Extremely Dry Dog Noses
NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS AKA CRUSTY CRUD, BARNACLE NOSE
Is your dog’s nose EXTREMELY dry? Does it look like barnacles are growing on it? Are there layers or chunks of crust that crack and bleed? If your dog’s nose looks like the BEFORE noses in the image above, it may be Nasal Hyperkeratosis. Rest assured, it is not caused by diet, genetics, playing in the dirt or anything you can control. And the good news is Nose Butter® works on it!
Nasodigital or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition, which means unknown cause ¯\(°_o)/¯ that causes excessive formulation of dry crust that vets call keratin, (vet-speak for protein). It actually IS layers of skin tissue that has grown wild over on the nose.
This condition isn't life-threatening and most veterinarians consider Nasal Hyperkeratosis cosmetic. But there are medical, cosmetic and mental health reasons that this dry nose condition can affect your dog's well being. It has to be uncomfortable for your dog. Your dog cannot breathe as easily. It’s unattractive, of course.
Most importantly, your dog is not getting the scents and smells they need to feel secure and confident. A healthy nose snags good smells that float by and provides your dog with info. A dry nose is not going to capture the info packed smells. This can lead to frustration and a lack of self confidence.
You know you feel when have NO SERVICE as you drive in an unfamiliar area? Probably frustrated, anxious and maybe terrified. Your dog experiences those same emotions when they can't get the info they need to make good dog decisions.

Nose Butter Works
The left 1/3 of our Brittany's nose has been dark and crusty since we got her at 6 months, she is now 2. We have tried various things on her nose like Vitamin E, ointments, eye drops and Coconut oil. Coconut oil worked the best but never made it completely go away. We have been using Nose Butter now for approx. 3 weeks and her nose has never looked better.

What great news! Coconut Oil is one of the ingredients we love and use in Nose Butter. The trick is all the ingredients working together. Yikes...I spilled the secret ;-D Thank you for letting us know! -Kathy
I was so glad that I found Nose Butter online!
Our girl, Abby has been doing a lot of rooting in chipmunk holes the past year and her nose was getting very crusty. The nose butter has softened up her nose and she is doing great. I do have to have a treat nearby to get her to sit long enough for me to get the butter on her nose!
IN ONLY A COUPLE OF DAYS OUR SWEET GUY'S NOSE WAS ALMOST NORMAL
We ordered your nose butter for our 14 year old Brittany, Patch. I have tried tons if stuff on his poor nose to no avail. He suffers from allergies and other health problems. Let me tell you in only a couple of days our sweet guys nose was almost normal, so it works fast. I would cry when I looked at his rough, swollen, lumpy nose. No more - now I can kiss his soft sweet nose again! Thank you so much for this wonderful product! It's worth every penny! Patch says woof woof! (Thank you!) God bless!
