Bernese Mountain Dog Nose Butter®  Moisturizes Your Berner's Dry Nose...Naturally

Your Bernese Mountain Dog Was Bred To Be A Hardworking Farm Dog

The Bernese Mountain dog originated in the Swiss mountains where they drove or herded dairy cattle, watched over the farm and offered companionship to the farmers. They are one of several dog breeds originating in the Alpine mountains. (CLICK for my article on how the Berner was saved from near extinction).

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. 

TIPS

  • 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.

Happy Dog Happy Mom

I was worried about my dog's nose. It was so crusty and sore looking. I didn't know what to put on it that would be safe. I found this product in an ad so I thought I would give it a try. Well I have to say, I'm surprised at how fast it worked. Her nose is looking great. So glad I tried it.

We're really glad you found us also! Give your girl a BIG hug from us. And thank you for taking the time to let us know! -Kathy

Merry Christmas and Thank you!

Merry Christmas and thank you for making such a wonderful product. love your product! Bella has her smooth nose back! At age 10, the hyperkeratosis began appearing.
Our veterinarian recommended the nose butter to me, as your ingredients are all natural. In the beginning, I rubbed the butter on her nose twice daily. Now, she just gets a nose rub in the morning along with breakfast. Cookie in hand, a bowl full of food and gentle, soothing puppy talk, she'll willingly let me rub the butter into her nose!

You nailed Nose Butter application! Cookies, soft approach and she was all aboard. We're thrilled to know she was receptive and is looking and feeling better now. Thank you for taking the time to let us know! -Kathy

Teeny, tiny nose loves Nose Butter

Millie, my 14 year old Japanese Chin was rescued from a life of terrible neglect. I found the Blissful Dog when I was looking for help for her dry nose. I’ve been using the Nose Butter as directed and it’s been great. She doesn’t even mind when I touch her nose. The splits and bumps she had must have been quite painful. Now her teeny, tiny nose is black and shiny. Thanks from Millie and Cate

Millie has THE BEST SMILE! I know she is so grateful and delighted to be with you now.. She is finally living her life as adored royalty. To top it off, she has her Millie nose back! Thank you for all you have done for her! Kathy

Just the Solution I Was Looking For!

Thank you so much for these items! I have Spaniels and they have problems with their noses. This is just the solution I was looking for! My only negative thing to say about this is I’m sorry I didn’t find this sooner! (Imported from eBay)
