NO. The medium is great for a Dachshund or perhaps a medium Golden Retriever and even then I would recommend the large size. I bought it for 2 stray cats and it's just about the right size for them. For a Husky definitely get the larger size. Medium will be too small.

I wish manufacturers would stop selling items by a dog's weight as though it is an indicator of size! For example, a 75-lb Greyhound is a lot taller and longer than a 75-lb American Pitbull Terrier. They do not fit into the same spaces, harnesses, or dog jackets. My Irish Wolfhound mix was the same size (maybe slightly taller) than a purebred IW, but weighed up to 75 lbs more due to extra muscle and a larger frame. It is always best to go by dimensions, if possible, and then look at weight recommendations if they are truly applicable.

I bought the large for my 70 lb dog and she has plenty of room to move around inside.

The x-large dog house I have a 120 lb Great Pyrenees using it and he has enough room to go in and turn around without a problem.

I would recommend the door also as we just got a bunch of rain (9 inches in two days) and the dog pad was soaked. No matter which way I put the house so the rain wouldn't blow in...it still did.

Hope this helps.

Hard to tell! It depends on how big your Boxer gets. How big were her parents? Your breeder would be the best person to ask. Some Boxers are have a stocky build, others are leggier and more slender.

I copied this off another website - This dog house has: Structural foam construction which is 3 layers thick providing extra strength and durability. Nitrogen insulation keeps it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. When made into a foam insulation, Nitrogen based plastics are some of the safest and most efficient thermal and acoustical insulation products available. Thermco Premium Foam® is a 60% closed-cell; R-value 5.1, semi-permeable foam that in one step provides a sealed thermal envelope that simplifies retrofit application. This foam insulation has been formulated with the environment in mind. It emits NO CFC's and does not contain any petroleum products or by-products. It behaves much like petroleum-based plastic foam, without any of the harmful environmental side effects.

Here are the dimensions for the large dog house: 43.8 x 34 x 25.8 inches
I don't know if it would be big enough for 2 dogs. To be safe I would get the Extra Large. Or One large and one Medium. Unless they are really close to each other most dogs don't like to share their dog house.

answer 2
As these are "puppies", you should probably assume they will grow quite a bit larger, depending on their mix. I'd buy the largest size for several reasons. One, if it is raining on a hot, humid day there should still be enough air circulating inside that the dogs will want to be inside rather than in the rain. Plus it will provide shade from the hot sun. If you would happen to buy a dog house that is too large for the dogs to warm in the winter using just their body heat, purchase clean straw or add old quilts to the inside for the dogs to nest in and retain body heat. You can also buy dog house/dog bed warmers at the pet store warehouses and online. The goal of a dog house isn't to "house" a dog 24/7, but to offer temporary protection from the elements. If the house is too small for both dogs to comfortably stand in together you risk one - or both- standing outside in hail or other inclement weather.

No. Although it will depend on: the breed and size of dog (dog's size compared to relative size of house), its age and overall health, what type of bedding you use in the house (straw, heated mat, etc.), how much other wind and other protection you provide from the elements, and, in some cases, what the dog is fed (usable caloric intake). In Nebraska, with few exceptions, it gets too cold in the winter for dogs to be safely left outside during our extreme heat and cold conditions. While a dog with a lot of coat that is genetically disposed to cold weather (i.e., Husky or Malamute) may be more tolerant of severe cold weather, these same dogs are generally heat intolerant. Any dog may experience frostbite on extremities in freezing conditions. Very young dogs (generally, under one year of age) and senior dogs are less tolerant of extremes in temperature especially when they occur in short periods of time. (In Nebraska we can see temps vary from 30 to 40 degrees in 24 hours!) Dogs with arthritis and conditions such as hip dysplasia will suffer in extreme temperatures. I know that many people do leave their dogs outside in various types of structures. Personnally, I wouldn't because I have invested time and money in training, feeding, and vetting my dogs (not to mention love and attention!) and the risk of leaving them exposed to the elements and potentially shortening their life and functionality is a risk I'm not willing to take. If this is your only option, consider placing the dog house in a (ventilated) garageb, or barn, and using a lot of hay in it to further insulate the dog.

It would be with the addition of a door, heater and pad. There are some great heaters for the interior of the dog houses that have thermostats and keep it at a reasonable temperature for the dogs. Without adding a heater and a good pad, No. The R value is about a 5.1 from what I read. There is also an electric heated bed specially shaped for this dog house. But this dog house alone will not be adequate shelter for a dog outside in Ohio's winters.

Oh this is a loaded question. It depends on the dog breed, the length of its hair, does it have a protected area away from the wind? I bring my dogs in for the night when it gets below 50. They wear coats or sweaters when it gets cooler than 50 and as it gets colder, their coats get heavier and cover more of their bodies. I try to put myself in the dogs "feet" - if it is cold to me, I figure it is cool on them - so if i need a coat, I put a sweater or coat on them depending on how cold it is. I would never leave a dog unprotected below 40 - it is state law that dogs have shelter (to get away from rain, sun and wind), food and water. hen it is around 32, they wear very heavy coats (there are LOTS of good heavy dog coats out there) and I put a an electric heated dog pad in the beds of the smaller dogs. I have a dog shelter and live where we have temps from 7 degrees to 100.
