The cost of cremating a dog ranges between $50 and $300 as of 2015. The size of the dog and whether the owner chooses individual or community cremation affect the overall cost.
Individual cremation involves cremating just one dog at a time, and the crematory returns the cremains to the owner. This costs between $150 and $300. Community cremation involves cremating a number of animals at one time, and the costs range from $50 to $150. The return of cremains is not an option in community cremation. Crematories may impose additional fees for picking up the body, allowing the owner to view the cremation, and providing urns and nameplates for the cremains.
