God forbid that you are faced with burying a dog in the near future, but if you have to its as well you know how to do it properly.
Whilst there are plenty of pet cemetries around many people still prefer to bury their pet dog at home.
You must dig a hole at least four feet deep, this is to ensure that no wildlife can smell the dog as it decomposes and attempt to dig it up.
Think about an area that will remain undisturbed so not flowerbeds or areas that you may wish to build on, erect garages, sheds on in the future.
Do not be tempted as many people are to bury your dog in a bin liner or other plastic material. It is much better to bury the animal wrapped in cloth, or if a small pet in a cardboard box, maybe a shoe box. This will help with decomposition.
Many of us in our lives will have to bury a dog or other family pet, so it is best to make sure you do it right and afford your family pet the dignity it deserves
