Losing a pet is like losing a precious friend.  You can repay all those years of companionship and loyalty by providing your beloved pet with the right pet urn.  One of the best pet urns to turn to today is the wood pet urn.  There are actually a lot of benefits to choosing wood urns for your beloved pet's remains.

First off, with wood pet urns, there are a lot of options to choose from.  You can choose any type of wood that you like, from oak, pine, cedar, mahogany, to walnut, or anything else in between.  The choice on the type of wood really depends on your preference.  If the particular type of wood that you prefer is not available in your area, you can easily buy one online.

One of the best benefits of a wood pet urn is its durability.  Most types of woods (of course, those that are carefully chosen) are very durable and can last for long periods of time.  This would mean that you won't have to worry about transferring the ashes of your beloved pet after a couple of years.

Aside from its durability, wood is also popular for its overall cosmetic appeal.  The natural beauty of the wood cannot be overemphasized.  You can select from the various beautiful shades of natural wood.  Or you can simply add wood finish for a much better look and feel.  This can also help protect the surface of the wood. There are a lot of wood finishes available, such as varnish, lacquer, paint, shellac, wax and drying oils (tung oil or linseed oil).

Wood pet urn is also perfect for all kinds of animals, big or small.  This is because its durable material can hold up to 100 lbs. of weight.  So you won't have to worry so much if your pet belongs to the bigger breed.

Another benefit of wood urns is that you can use them as decors and place them in a special area in your home.  A wood pet urn, if designed properly, can really make a good decoration.  This way, you can always remember your beloved pet every time you see the pet urn.

Since wood can easily be engraved upon and is a semi-permeable structure, you can easily have the material customized to your liking.  You can have it engraved in any way you like; you can have your pet's name engraved into the wooden piece or you can simply engrave a poem or anything that your heart desires.

Aside from inscriptions, you can also choose to add other features onto the wood pet urn, such as wooden statue.  You can even choose to have a specially designed sculpture of your dog to make it more personalized.  This can also make a great decoration in your home.

Regardless of the type of wood pet urn or the design you choose, these wood urns never fail to make a great memorial piece that can perfectly fit into your home.  And knowing that your pet is in a nice resting place and is honored in a symbolic manner can even make the grieving process a bit easier.
