Q:

Can a dog be buried in a yard?

A:

Quick Answer

According to Memorials.com, whether or not a deceased pet can be buried in a yard depends largely on local laws. Grieving pet owners should also take into account whether or not they own or rent the home; if it is a rental, the landlord should be consulted prior to burial, even if local law allows for pets to be buried in residential yards. If part of a homeowners' association, the owner should consult the association's rules and regulations as well.
