DOBERMAN PINSCHER NOSE BUTTER® FOR YOUR DOBIE'S DRY NOSE
Doberman Pinscher’s are elegant dogs – sleek, muscular, powerful. Every inch of them speaks of grace and elegance. Unfortunately, they are often prone to a dry, crusty, uncomfortable ridge on the top their nose. Doberman Pinscher NOSE BUTTER® is packed full of the richest moisturizing butters and oils (all natural, of course) to control that frustrating dryness.
There is a more extreme dog nose condition, Nasal Hyperkeratosis, where excess nose skin tissue (a protein overgrowth) makes layers of crusty crud (looks like barnacles). If your Dobie's nose is really crusty or has a pocked look they may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis.
The good news is any level of dry dog nose issue can be easily treated and a healthy balance maintained with routine NOSE BUTTER® usage.
YOUR DOBERMAN PINSCHER'S SENSE OF SMELL IS HIS CANINE SUPERPOWER
As you probably know, the Doberman Pinscher was developed by a German tax collector to guard and protect him from all the people who would do a tax collector harm. Herr Dobermann selectively bred the strongest, most intense dogs of the type he desired until he developed a dog similar to today's Dobie.
So, from day one of his genetic lineage, your Dobie has been bred to guard and protect. Of course, ALL dogs rely on their sense of smell a lot more than we do, with our pitiful noses that can barely sniff out something heinous in the back of the refrigerator.
Your Dobie can step into the back yard, take one sniff and know the guy down the road needs to check HIS refrigerator (hint: it’s in that takeout box under the 12-pack of Mountain Dew), that the French Bulldog a block over is eating the last slice of pizza under the coffee table and that the UPS woman loathes delivering packages to your house.
If your Dobie’s nose is dry or crusty, not only is it uncomfortable and unsightly, it can actually impact his ability to gather smell info. The moist surface of your Dobie’s nose grabs and traps the scent particles in the air and directs them to a smell now or smell later part of your dog’s nose. A dry nose can only gather a fraction of the info your dog is hardwired genetically to want and need to make decisions.
NOSE BUTTER® FOR A MORE CONFIDENT, RELAXED DOBERMAN PINSCHER
I know, it may seem like a stretch to think a moist nose = a happy Dobie, but hang in there with me!
This inability to be able to gather and properly process information about his surroundings can add stress to your dog’s life. Many dogs become anxious and on edge when they can't do the work they were born to do.
While your Dobie is probably not keeping thieves away from a coin purse filled with tax dollars, he IS guarding you and your loved ones from danger and would probably give his life to save you. He wants and needs to have all of his senses, but especially his Dobie Superpower Smeller, in tip top shape. It doesn't matter if he is a true working dog or not, in his heart and mind his most important job is watching over you and your family.

NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS INFO
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 could be described as extremely dry, or 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.
Nasodigital or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition, which means unknown cause ¯\(°_o)/¯ that is marked by the excessive formulation of nose 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 ned to feel secure and confident. A healthy moist nose snags good smells that float by and provide 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. Your dog knows info is out there, but he cannot get it.
