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.

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.

My estimate would be between 50 and 75lbs. Anything larger and I would recommend the Extra Large unit.

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.

Well, actually the top comes off and therefore you have access to the bottom as well. So no worries, it does come apart and is easy to clean.

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.

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.

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.
