How to Choose the Right Size Cremation Urns for Dogs

Whoever coined the phrase "man's best friend" when talking about dogs, hit their nails. Our four-legged friend is with us no matter what. We can trust them to give us constant love and hugs when we need them most and because of that, the loss we feel when they end can be as deep as the feeling we get when we have a lost man, a man we love. If you decide to cremate your dog and then keep the cream as a keepsake, you will need to take a look at the right dog memorial urn and try to find the right size for your dog.

When looking at a dog's cremation urn, you can estimate the correct urn size you need by equating one cubic inch of space to one pound of your dog's healthy weight. For example, if your dog weighs 16 pounds, you need to find a jar that holds at least 16 cubic inches.

Of course, if you don't have a custom urn made to your puppy's exact specifications and size, you may have a hard time finding the perfect sized dog cremation urn. Most urn companies offer small, medium, and large jars for your dog.

The small jar is designed to cream dogs weighing up to 25 pounds. This includes all toy breeds and other small breeds such as  Tzus and small terriers.

The medium dog jar holds dog cream weighing up to 40 pounds, which covers most small to small/medium-sized dog breeds. 

Large dog jars hold dog remains weighing up to 70 kilograms. This includes most medium to large-sized dogs such as Labrador retrievers and Australian cattle.
