So many dogs have a dry, crusty or even cracked nose. Characterized by a lumpy crust of "crud" across the top of the nose or a cracked appearance or the nose can also just be dull and dry. Uncomfortable for your dog and unsightly for us to see. You may have been to the vet, Googled around or even bought products that just didn't work. All that is over - you found The Blissful Dog NOSE BUTTER®!

Many dogs, purebred and mixed breeds, have dry or crusty noses. While The Blissful Dog offers over 90 dog breed labels we honor our mixed breed buddies (or homes with multiple breed of dogs) with our Just A Nose label. Of course, NOSE BUTTER® is the same recipe, the labels are just for fun and to share my love of dogs and all their varieties with YOU.

This listing is for a big .75 ounce tube (3/4 oz) of The ORIGINAL Dog NOSE BUTTER® with our Just A Nose label in a gift bag. By the way, NOSE BUTTER® is all the same inside, the different breed labels are just for fun for me! I get to look at all kinds of dog faces every single day!


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.



Open the tin
Scoop a bit out appropriate to the size of your dog’s nose
Dab it on their nose. Tah Dah!
You do not have to rub it in, it will melt
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 use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)


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)


Give a cookie or treat
Feed their dinner (with extra yummies)
Give them their favorite toy
Play with them for a bit
Go for a walk

Distraction is the key! Cookies always distract me, so a treat may be best. Yum, now I want a cookie.


Follow the steps above for tin or tube.

After 2-3 days of multiple daily application, test the crusty stuff with a bit of tissue and see if it will rub off.

If it does not crumble right off (will look like black, greasy dirt), keep applying NOSE BUTTER 2-3x a day until it easily, without picking, comes off. Resist the urge to pick as tempting as it may be.

The crusty stuff is actually skin and it will hurt to pick it off, just like us pulling a scab off a skinned knee that is not ready to come off.

Reviews and Testimonials

Rave reviews are the best testimonial that our products really DO work we can share with you. Here are just a very few of the hundreds we have received. For more fabulous reviews visit

Dogue de Bordeaux Nose Butter Review - I just wanted to say how delighted I am with your products for my boy Logan. The packaging is delightful and it was shipped promptly over to England without a problem. But most importantly the Nose Butter has restored his nose to be lovely and soft and the RELAX oil is really calming. He has had some anxiety lately after a car accident and his aromatherapy massages are really calming! Thank you –Kate M. and Logan xx

Help for Hyperkeratosis- Consider me a Nose Butter evangelist! I am sharing this with all of my contacts. Two vets offered little to no help for the Hyperkeratosis on my Heeler’s nose. It had expanded to cover her entire nose. This is the transformation we have seen using Nose Butter twice a day for one week! –Amanda

Delighted Cavalier Mom in Australia - Oh. My. Goodness. I was absolutely not expecting anything to fix my poor Jasper’s nose, but after 2 days, all the crusty scabby yuck fell off (gross) and he is now sporting a brand new shiny nose. Thank you SO much. Best product EVER!! –A.S. in Australia

Happy Boxer Mom - Hello! I just wanted to thank you for your amazing nose butter! My boxer has had a really bad cracked and crusted nose. I looked up what I should do and came upon your website. I ordered the tube for boxers…and within three days his nose was back to normal! Thank you so much! –Amy

Delighted Pug Lover - I just wanted to say thank you for making this product! I have tried everything for my pugs dry cracked yucky nose and nothing ever worked. I have only applied the product twice and the difference is absolutely amazing. Her nose looks so much better in just one day. I can’t wait to see it after a week! So thank you again for this product, you have made my dog beautiful again!!! I’ll definitely be recommending this to everyone I know and I’m sure ill be buying more. –S.B.
