Have you seen the movie BEST IN SHOW? I was pretty much the personification of the couple with the Weimaraner shrieking about the Buzzy Bee toy during my time showing dogs. Let's say I was passionate about the dog shows, that's a polite way to put it.
For over twenty years I bred and showed Top Winning, Number One, fancy, schmancy French Bulldogs. As you know, show dogs have to look and feel great to bring home the big ribbons and French Bullodgs are notorious for having dry, crusty noses. There was nothing available for dog noses and what was out there was full of petroleum by-products or didn't work. The wheels began to turn...
Then one day, back in 2001, I was slathering shea butter on my legs and two of my French Bulldogs rushed over to see if I had something for them to eat. Almost as if guided by the Ghost of Dog Noses Future, I dabbed some on their noses. Within two days they had soft, smooth noses.
The light bulb went off, I shouted “Eureka!” I felt I had channeled Archimedes, Einstein and Edison… my dogs had smooth noses! This stuff worked and FAST!
I bought more shea butter, used it on my own dogs and shared it with friends (yes, I actually had a few friends despite my aforementioned insanity at the dog shows). After many requests I began selling my concoction at dog shows and online (that first shop was "A" PayPal button that took me all day to configure).
Soon, another light bulb flickered over my head and I realized there were other dogs with noses! Dry Noses! Noses that needed NOSE BUTTER®!
Pug, Boxer, Bulldog and Boston Terrier labels were next. More people requested labels with their beloved breed and before you knew it...there were over 100 dog breed labels. Crazy, I know!
PAW BUTTER, ELBOW BUTTER, BOO BOO BUTTER & RELAX Dog Aromatherapy were all added to the product line, to the relief and delight of dogs everywhere.
Fast forward through all the hard work, recipe tweaking and business building stuff to today...
The Blissful Dog is now in hundreds of stores worldwide with more virtually every day. We look forward to making your dog’s life a bit more blissful.
