Great Danes are the Apollo of the Dog World. Regal, majestic and elegant. If your Great Dane has a dry ridge of crust across his nose, you are at the right place! NOSE BUTTER® is created from super moisturizing organic butters and oils to soothe and smooth your dog's nose fast. After 1-3 days of multiple daily applications you will see results. Then just use as needed for maintenance. Your Great Dane's cracked, dry nose is a thing of the past with Nose Butter.

This listing is for a one ounce (1oz) tin with your choice of All 4 Great Danes, Fawn, Black or Harlequin Great Dane on the Label in an Organza Gift Bag.

NOSE BUTTER is an uber-moisturizer made of ingredients that soak into your dog's nose using a layered effect. First the smaller molecules are absorbed, then the ingredients with medium molecules melt in and then the larger molecules bring up the rear to act as a protective barrier (while still being light enough to allow the nose leather skin to breathe). Bill Nye has nothing on us!

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT STUFF ON MY DOG'S NOSE?

Probably not food, dirt, bad genetics or anything you did or didn't do that you should have (did that make sense?). While your dog may have a bit of regular dryness on their nose (which NOSE BUTTER® will take care of easily), if it is more of a crust or looks like an oyster shell or tree root, your dog may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis aka crusty nose crud.

Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition (scientific jargon for they don't have a clue where it comes from ¯\(°_o)/¯ ) that results in a protein or keratin overgrowth (keratin-more jargon) on a dog's nose and/or paw pads. This protein overgrowth is often seen in older dogs, dogs with certain illnesses or on some medications. Plus, certain breeds or breed types (mixed breed dogs get this too) seem to have a genetic predisposition to the condition. Bully breeds, flat-faced dogs, toy breeds, the mastiff types and anything with a chunky body type seems to be more likely to have this condition.

A moist dog nose acts as a scent gathering flypaper, perfect for catching scent particles that give our dog's info. If your dog's nose is dried out, they will lick it, in the vain attempt to get the moist barrier that captures the nose news. Just like us licking chapped lips, it creates an even drier nose.

Now you know what it IS, let's chat about what will get rid of it and keep it at bay...NOSE BUTTER®!

THE ORIGINAL & TRADEMARKED NOSE BUTTER® dry dog nose treatment, is handcrafted by my team and I right here in far northern Minnesota using organic shea butter, organic avocado oil, organic castor oil, organic almond oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa seed butter, organic olive oil, a little dash of essential oils and a LOT of LOVE.

LIGHTLY SCENTED: Original formula NOSE BUTTER® has a bit of aromatherapy oils (Cedarwood to lessen stress, Cypress for to help ground and balance, and Ylang Ylang for a bit of a lift and joy). Most people do not even smell the oils at all, unless you have a sensitive nose, the subtle scent may be detectable.

UNSCENTED VERSION: We firmly believe in the energetic healing benefits of the essential oils we use in The Blissful Dog products, but we respect some of you may want an unscented version.

HOW DO I APPLY NOSE BUTTER®?

Apply Frenchie Nose Butter Tin

APPLYING NOSE BUTTER IN TINS

Open the tin
Scoop a bit out appropriate to the size of your dog's nose
Rub it on their nose. Tah Dah. That is it.
Distract to keep them from licking (see below)
Repeat 2-3x a day for 1-3 days or until nose is back in shape
Then as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)


APPLYING NOSE BUTTER IN TUBES

Point the tube away from their eyes
Swipe across the top of the nose. About as much as a light swipe of lipstick (men-imagine it)
Distract to keep them from licking (see below)
Repeat 2-3x a day for 1-3 days or until nose is back in shape
Then as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)

DISTRACT! DIVERT! BEFORE, DURING & AFTER

Give a cookie or treat
Feed their dinner
Give them their favorite toy
Play with them for a bit

Distraction is the key! Cookies always distract me, so a treat may be best. Yum, now I want a cookie. Not only does this take their mind off the NOSE BUTTER, it also build an association between GOOD STUFF and NOSE BUTTER application.

NOTE: If your dog has crusty stuff on their nose after 1-3 days, test the crusty stuff with a bit of tissue and see if it will rub off. If it does not easily come off, keep applying until it easily, without picking, comes right off. Resist the urge to pick as tempting as it may be.

Great Dane Facts & Tidbits

Great Dane History: There are several theories as to the origin of the breed often called the Apollo of Dogs. The English version says the bulk of the evolution of the breed was English. The German version says, obviously, that the Germans did all of the work!

The Great Dane and the Mastiff have the same ancestors, thought to be the giant dogs of ancient Egypt. The dogs migrated to England, either by the Romans or sailors. These large dogs were eventually bred with Greyhounds, creating a slimmer, faster dog which many feel is the origin of the Great Dane, often called the "English Dogge."

This effort led to the development of the "English Dogge", which some would say is the ancestor to the Modern Great Dane. What is known is the Germans did import many of the "English Dogges" to use in breeding. They crossed them with German dogs to develop a large, powerful dog to hunt wild hogs/boar. During the 1700 and 1800s the German dog breeders worked to create a friendlier breed with a solid, stable temperament. There was no longer the same need for ferocious war dogs. Here is a link to a fascinating story of the Great Dane and their service in modern war (decidedly un-warlike).
