Questions & Answers

8 Customer Questions

a I can't seem to find the dimensions for the medium pod.
Answer by ChewyFeb 05, 2019
The Micro size measures 4 x 4 x 2 inches, the Mini size measures 7.5 x 3.5 x 3 inches, the Small size measures 9 x 5.5 x 4.5 inches, the Medium size measures 18 x 12.5 x 8 inches, and the Large size measures 26 x 18 x 10 inches.

I know it says to bury 2 feet down but could it be placed in a large flower pot?
Answer by ChewyJul 03, 2019
It is not recommended to place these inside a flower pot. They must be buried in the ground at least 2 feet deep.

What seeds come with it? It doesn't specify.
Answer by ChewyApr 04, 2019
This monument pod comes with a seeded sympathy card that can be planted to create a living memorial of your beloved pet. The leaf is embedded with wildflower seeds.

Is it okay to bury a bird in it?
Answer by ChewyOct 30, 2019
The biodegradable pods are suitable for all pets. The Small size is recommended for most birds.

Wrong Size

Purchased for my petite very old cat & was way too small. I would recommend for a kitten or puppy but not for an adult cat. There was no way she would fit. I love the idea though.

Posing for a Medium size

I hope the photo of Boots helps you to decide on a size of Paw Pods. Boots is a lively 12-14 pounds. He would fit in a medium. When my cat Jonesy passed, he weighed about 7 lbs so I was able to include his towel in the medium size. I calculated that the small size would be way too small for Jonesy even without his towel. I was very pleased with the Paw Pod. This is my second purchase.

For my cat, Layla

Laid my baby to rest in this. Wish it was a little longer, but she fit well in it and it locked and secured well. Shipped super fast as usual. Glad to have found this affordable option to lay my girl to rest in.

Fits with extra room

Already used two of these for our syrian hamsters. They fit along with more than enough space for some additional bedding and treats/food/small toys you may want them to rest with.

Poor quality control

I ordered one of the med pods and we could not get the included clamps to go onto the box by hand no matter how hard we tried. My husband tried to tap one onto the pod with a hammer and the edge of the pod broke off. Chewys sent me a replacement and six different people at my office, including a mechanical engineer, tried to put the clamps on the box with no success. This 2nd box was also warped and one corner would not close all the way leaving a 1/3" gap. Chewy issued a complete refund but this is not a product that should have such sloppy QC problems as it just added to the grief of an already traumatic experience of losing a beloved pet of 21 years. Having gotten 2 faulty products back to back they clearly have gotten a bad batch from the manufacturer and need to thoroughly check their stock to prevent what I went through from happening to someone else.

Pretty and well made

When our cat was diagnosed with cancer, we decided on a natural burial when it was time to say goodbye, which happened much sooner than we expected unfortunately. The pod is sturdy and well-made, pretty, and snaps closed tightly. The medium was the perfect size for our 12 lb boy. We lined our pod with Chewy packing paper (he loved that more than the famous boxes) and had enough room at the tops and sides to add flowers. This is the first time I've had the luxury of a planned goodbye for one of my pets. The pod was a beautiful piece of our send off, and allowed us to do something special for him one last time.

The small is too small and medium is really big

The small is too small and medium is really big. They need a size in between the small and medium. My chihuahua weighs about 6 lbs, and I could fit at least 4 in the medium pod. I have no choice, but to keep the medium! Unless you have a 2-3 lb teacup furry friend, you will need the medium size. Otherwise, the product is well made, and biodegradable. Love the customer service at

Perfect but...

It itself was perfect! But I was unsure what size too get. Just letting anyone know in the unfortunate circumstance, this size is perfect for an adult rat. And our flowers sprouted from it within two weeks. This made losing him ALOT easier to cope with all around an very well thought out product.

Appears perfect

I hope I don't have to use this for a LONG time, but it appears to be exactly what I will need when the time comes. Felt insensitive when I bought it, but the WONDERFUL Chewy folks assured me I wasn't and it was just good planning.

Great product, but....

Love the durability of product. Only thing fasteners are not well made. Was supposed to come with four, received three and the fourth was broken. While trying to fasten, one broke so only had 2 to fasten. Ended up using cable ties to make sure pod was shut tight.
