Dog Urns

Dog urns can be a beautiful way to memorialize your departed dog. While some dog owners choose to bury their dog, many dog owners prefer to have their dog. In these cases, dog urns are used to hold the ashes of the cremated pet. There is wide variety of companies that produce dog urns, and they can range from simple and practical to very ornate or unique options. Choosing dog urns is mainly a matter of your own taste and a reflection of your dog’s personality.

If your dog is being buried in a pet cemetery or being interred privately, you may be more likely to keep your selection of dog urns limited to the simpler and more utilitarian variety. There may be some restrictions that the cemetery places on the size or shape of dog urns. Check with the cemetery for details about whether there are recommended companies from whom to purchase dog urns, or if there may even be a particular company from whom you are required to order. If you are burying your dog's ashes privately, be sure to check with your local municipality. Some places have strict laws regarding the burial of pets, even those cremated and interred in dog urns.

Some simple, yet elegant, choices in dog urns include plain wooden boxes with engraved nameplates affixed to the front. A slightly more elaborate version of this may include a picture or etching of the dog. Another popular choice in dog urns is metal or pottery vases. These can be either somber in tone, with little or no decoration, or much more whimsical, with playful photos or drawings of your beloved dog. Some dog urns are even made to resemble you dog, and can be found in miniature or life-sized versions.

There are a variety of sizes of dog urns available. The size you will need will depend on the size of the dog, as well as your own personal preferences. Some dog owners choose to have their dogs memorialized with dog urns that are a life-sized replica of the animal, while others opt for smaller dog urns. As a general rule, dog urns should be at least 1 cubic inch in size for every pound of the dog's weight. In other words, a 40-pound dog will require a dog urn that is around 40 cubic inches in size. In most cases, your pet will be returned to you in a plastic bag within another container, such as a simple box. Most dog urns have easily-removed access panels for placing your pet's remains into the urn.

With a variety of options of dog urns available, your personal preference can guide you to the best way to memorialize your dog. From simple to ornate, sedate to whimsical, there are dog urns to fit every beloved dog and every bereaved dog owner.
