Dog Cremation

An Individual Service for Your Companion

Losing a dog is heart breaking. Not only do canines act as great companions, but they often provide emotional support for children, the elderly and owners from all walks of life. Given their enduring loyalty, it’s only fitting they should receive a personalised dog cremation service that treats them as individuals.


Small and Large Breeds

There’s no limit on the size of dog we can cremate. Larger dogs will often take longer than smaller ones, but we aim to return the ashes to you as quickly as possible. As always, we cremate each dog individually, so there’s no doubt as to whose ashes you own.

Given that around 24 per cent of UK households now own a dog, The Wild Wood cremates a range of dog breeds on a regular basis.

Can’t find your question?
Here at The Wild Wood we base our pricing on the weight of your pet, therefore please contact us for an accurate price. We collect your pet and return ashes for free within 10 miles of us but if you need us to travel a little further we are happy to do this. We can provide a no obligation quote for additional mileage.
Here at The Wild Wood we only carry out individual cremations. It is a very similar process to human cremation. We collect your pet from your home or veterinary surgery. Your pet is then placed in a specially designed Euthabag and transported back to The Wild Wood. We take great care to treat your pet with dignity and respect as we take inkless paw and nose prints. We will also take a small lock of hair if possible. Your pet is then carefully placed into the cremator, intense heat turns the body into dried bone and dust. Once cooled, these remains are carefully removed from the cremator and processed through a cremulator to break down any bone fragments. After this process the ashes are placed into a scatter tube and returned to the pet owner as soon as possible. You will also receive a certificate of cremation alongside your pets paw and nose prints. If you have chosen to place ashes in an urn then your pets ashes will be placed inside of the urn before being returned to you.
Many people choose to keep their pets ashes close by at home. There are many options for permanent storage. You may choose to have a traditional wooden casket with an engraved nameplate or a stunning cast effect figurine of your pet, which blends seamlessly into your home. We have modern slate and pewter effect urns, which are a stylish and unobtrusive way of storing ashes. There are beautiful photo frames with a discrete compartment behind to store ashes, these are available in lots of different frame options and styles. Please do contact us for any advice as the options are endless.
For some people they do not feel comfortable with handling their pets ashes after cremation and that is absolutely fine. If a client does not wish to receive the ashes back then we carry out the same process of an individual cremation except that we scatter the ashes ourselves in The Wild Wood. We keep records of where and when these ashes are scattered so that the client can visit if they wish.
Here at The Wild Wood, we have very stringent procedures regarding traceability. When we collect your deceased pet we place them in a Euthabag. This bag is labelled and your pet does not leave this bag, they are cremated inside it. This means that anything that you wish to remain with your pet stays inside there. Whilst taking the nose and paw prints we do not remove the pet from the bag. Our strict paper trail then follows your pet through the process of individual cremation to the scatter tube and then back their pet parents. We are required by DEFRA to keep records of all movement and these are checked during our annual inspection. We hand deliver your pets ashes back to you at home to ensure you are reunited as soon as possible.
Of course. We encourage you to place anything special to your pet with them inside of the Euthabag. We can assure you that those items remain with them throughout the whole process.
