How To Best Use Nose Butter® Info & Video


  • 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 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.


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’s for your dog’s well-being.

Nasal Hyperkeratosis Info - Extremely Dry Dog Noses



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.

Senior English Bulldog is VERY SATISFIED

We bought a large size of the nose butter several years ago and have been very satisfied with the results. We recently ran out and just purchased some more. Our girl, Mya has also developed hyperkeratosis on the pads of her paws. We've been using the paw stick for just a week now and are already seeing results. LOVE ALL THEIR PRODUCTS and the fact that they use natural ingredients!

Thank you, thank you for letting us know how your Mya is doing. It means so much to us to have repeat customers, as that lets us know we're doing it right! Thank you again and a big hug to Mya. -Kathy

That is great to hear! Thank you for taking time out of you day to leave us a wonderful review!- Kathy

My fur babies noses are very smooth now. Trick is getting them not to lick it off. And I suppose I shouldnt tell you bottom lip was raw and cracked. I was desperate and couldn't find my lip balm. I used the nose butter. OMG. My lip healed up in a day. It's still soooo smooth.

You're not the first person to tell us they used our products on themselves! I use it head to toe on myself;-D We're thrilled we could help the whole family out this cold winter. Thank you again for letting us know! -Kathy
Great product!! Bodhi’s Nose appreciates it!

Great to hear! We are so glad Bodhi is feeling better! Thanks for sharing with us! - Kathy
We absolutely LOVE this stuff!!

Maggy's nose is almost back to normal. It's amazing how well the Nose Butter works.

That is great news! We are so glad our Nose Butter has been helping out Maggy. - Kathy
So thankful!

Our English Bulldog has horrible allergies. Her skin is often red and itchy which makes her miserable. The Boo Boo Butter and Boo Boo Spray are wonderful!! They clear up her skin irritations in less than two days.
The Nose Butter is also amazing for her dry, cracked nose - a common issue for EBs.
Lastly, the Paw Butter is a staple for her mani/pedi routine.
Thank you so much for creating these products! Our girl is so much more comfortable because of them!

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to let us know how our products have been helping your pup. Thank you! - Kathy
Excellent product

My Olde English Bulldogge had a nose that looked like a dry cracked desert. Your Blissful Dog Nose Butter had her nose looking soft and hydrated within three days! I’m using it once every two days now. I’m completely impressed with your product. My sweet girl, Benelli, and I thank you.

Wow! Thats great news! We are so glad our Nose Butter has been helping Benelli! Thank you for taking time out of your day to let us know how it has been working! - Kathy
Awesome product!!! Quick results!!!

Our English Bulldog, Judith Mae, has had an ugly dry cracked nose for years. We have tried multiple products but nothing seemed to work for her. With just a couple applications of Bulldog nose butter we have seen a huge improvement!! Thank you!!

Great News!!! We're tickled that Nose Butter has done the trick for Judith Mae's dry nose. LOVE her name, by the way. The trick is to keep using a couple of times a week or so to keep her nose looking good. Again, thank you for letting us know! -Kathy
