Does Your Newfoundland Dog Ever Get Hot Spots? Brush Abrasions or Irritations?
The Newfoundland has always been one of those rock-solid breeds. They seem to intuitively KNOW when we are doing something to help them feel better. Gentle and understanding is part of the very core of their nature.
Boo Boo Butter Quells Your Newfie's Minor Skin Annoyances
But that glorious thick coat, while great for keeping them insulated, can hide a host of issues; hot spots, irritations, brush irritations, and more. Newfoundland Boo Boo Butter is the perfect herbal balm for all those non-emergency skin irritations. Many years ago we had a lovely Newfie, Deuce, who could create a hot spot in below 30 seconds. He was one of the reasons we created Boo Boo Butter!

Boo Boo Butter Usage Tips+
DAB! DISTRACT! DONE!
Our #1 Best Tip! Warm product before using for faster absorption. Stick tin or tube in pocket or rub in palm before application.
DABon clean affected area
DISTRACT to keep them from licking it off
DONE Then REPEAT 2-3x daily for 1-3 days or until area improves
Use as needed for follow-up
Non-toxic, no active ingredients & no harm if licked
The reason for so much info on distracting your dog is so the product will be absorbed and get its work done. It's non-toxic, of course, and causes no harm if ingested, but it needs to soak in to be effective.
Give treats before, during and after application, if needed
Petting and cuddling can be the best distraction-works for me
Feed an especially yummy dinner right after application
Throw a ball or go for a walk afterward
You don’t have to rub it in PERFECTLY, as the product starts to melt at body temperature
Catch ‘em napping. Dab the product on while they sleep - sneaky
Tag team ‘em. Have one person be the treat giver while you are the dabber
Allow your big dog to stand, rather than making them lie down, if that is more comfortable for you both
Follow with something positive and your dog will soon associate Boo Boo Butter application with happy times
Think of it like cutting toenails or giving meds. Sometimes we have to do what’s in our dog's best interest.
Some dogs may be in discomfort if they have chewed, scratched or gnawed at a sore spot. They may be extra protective or wary of this area.
Many dogs just do not like being controlled tightly and will try to get away. It’s not that they hate Boo Boo Butter (ouch-we hope not), but they do not like being restrained tightly.
Dogs have flight or fight as a means of protecting themselves. Taking those two best options away leaves them with making application difficult.
Some breeds like to be in charge and will not accept being held tightly. Fast application is key with those personality types.
Your big dogs know they can overpower you, but most of the time they will submit to being attended to with grace and dignity.
Boo Boo Butter is that ideal product for your dog's skin issue that needs attention, but is not an emergency.
No artificial ingredients, no synthetics, no petroleum by-products, nothing you cannot pronounce, just good stuff to support your dog's healing process.
Boo Boo Butter is an excellent alternative to antibiotic creams/balms, as we've seen so many antibiotic resistant issues around over-usage, in people and pets.
Plus, it just works. Every so often one of us (or a pet) will have something skin-related that needs help and in unision we shout, "Did you try Boo Boo Butter?"
Boo Boo Butter with a Pug label is the same recipe/product as Boo Boo Butter with a Portguese Water Dog on the label.
The labels celebrate how diverse our dog breeds are. Plus, it allows you to customize the product with your dog's breed.
Isn't it mind-blowing that in a couple of thousand years or so ago humankind tweaked the DNA of a Wolf into a Pug's ancestor?
Our wish is for you to enjoy having your dog's breed, or a breed you love, on the label and smile.
Our big dogs can get into more than their fair share of...situations. If they are excited and adrenalin is pumping, they may not even realize they have a big old scratch or rubbed a raw patch trying to dig under something.
Plus, big double or thick coated dogs have a lot to brush! They can look great one day and then just like that, they are a matted to the bone hot mess!
If you can catch a little spot early you can prevent a hot mess later. Note: I have two Great Pyrenees/Leonmberger cross girls and we're in far northern MN, so they have DENSE coats. We have to check them often to be sure of any issues. Of course, they're worth it.
Boo Boo Butter works for those scrapes and scratches that need attention, but not panic mode. Of course, Boo Boo Butter is
I bought boo boo for xolo, it helped us a lot to get rid of acne and dry skin.
We've been so excited by how many Xolo and Crested people are using the Boo Boo Butter on their dogs. It really is a good all-around moisturizer. If you have any left on your hands, rub into your elbows or feet! It feels sooo good. Thanks for letting us know. Blissfully, Kathy
Ruby Mae loves it!
We absolutely love your products, after a week of use (3 times a day), Ruby's nose is all healed and she looks beautiful again!
I always thought old dogs were supposed to have crusty noses, wrong! She is 14 years old and she actually sleeps better now that her nose is not cracked and hurting! Thank you for a wonderful product! We will be telling everyone about your products!
The boo boo butter works so good! I apply it on her chest and within a couple hours it’s so much better. There is no other product I would use on my fur baby Winni
Boo-boo butter is a high-quality product that Helps keep dry skin hydrated and does help reduce itching. Unfortunately my dog has persistent allergies, but this product has helped improve his skin quality.
What a Surprise!
Our handsome Shar-pei, Jax, has been developing a lot of bald spots around his neck and tail. I truly didn't know what to do. We added oil to his food, but it didn't do much. I ordered a tin of BooBoo Butter and thought I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. While it is taking some time for the fur to grow back, I rub it on him daily, we are seeing a noticeable improvement in the affected areas. I am very happy with this product and love the name! Not all of the fur is coming back, but he looks so much better!!!
My dog definitely loves how it smells as he tries to eat it every time I use it on him. He’s a pitbull and only five months old. This has really helped with his little hot spots and scratching. So glad I found you guys!
My dogs skin is nice now!
My great pyreneese has had skin problems during the summer but this boo boo butter really helps to make his belly nice and pink again! It's all natural ingredients so I don't have to worry about him licking it off. I love boo boo butter!
My Jack Chi mix had red spots that would not go away, Boo Boo Butter saved the day! The vet gave him steriods etc but that did nothing. This stuff works great!!
I use Boo Boo Butter on my Chinese Cresteds after their shave. It sooths their skin and makes it sliky smooth.
