Dog gone: pet cemetery opens

dog cemetery;Beijing;first

A worker at the CKC International Pet Dog Park weeds a pet dog's grave in Songzhuang yesterday.

Beijing's first dog cemetery opened on Saturday, as part of a park that also offers beauty services and psychotherapy to pampered pooches.

The dog cemetery, which is part of the CKC International Pet Dog Park in suburban Songzhuang, covers an area of 3,000 sq m and provides cremation services and space for up to 1,000 tombstones, on which owners can write epitaphs in honor of their dog's life.

"The feelings experienced by owners who lose their dogs are comparable to those who lost close friends or relatives, but pet owners often find it is difficult to find a way to dispose of their dog's body," said Wang Zheng, deputy general manager of the dog park.

In addition to the cemetery, there is a dog playground, beauty salon, swimming pool, obstacle training course, and a psychotherapy room. There is also a restaurant where dogs can dine out on balanced meals suited to their needs.

"In Beijing alone, there is about a million licensed dogs. However, it is difficult for pet owners to have a place to establish a bond between human and pet," Wang said.

"So we have created such a place that dog owners can enjoy a lively day with their canine friends."
