Best insulated doghouse?

Hello everyone,
For those of you who have doghouse can you tell me which one you have. Our boxer sleeps inside at night but during the day while we are at work he is outside. I need a sturdy and well insulated doghouse so he can be dry and warm.

Oh by the way we are in California.

Thanks!

It's called a crate, and or a gated off area for him, but STILL inside the house. Boxers are NOT outside dogs. These dogs are people/house dogs; They want to be a part of the family and should never be left on their own devices. Unless you value your couch cushions. btw. Give them a safe pace to hang out when you're not there. But please don't leave them outside...

Please nix the outside unless you're there to supervise...

/sorry...this is the edited version.

It's called a crate, and or a gated off area for him, but STILL inside the house. Boxers are NOT outside dogs. This breed is people/house dogs; They want to be a part of the family and should never be left on their own devices. Bottom line, Give them a safe pace to hang out when you're not there. But please don't leave them outside...unless under supervision.

They don't call them velcro dogs for no reason.

This may help you to understand how important it is to NEVER leave your dog outside alone.........

Kidnapping of family dogs and cats are on the rise. In this economy, theft of dogs from yards is a money making crime. Many of these dogs are sold on the internet, used for breeding, or worse yet ~ sold to medical testing companies and for a very good price!

Please don't leave your dog outside. I see you have a white boxer ~ some will see it as a big money maker since it's "rare" (only to the ignorant, we boxer owners know better). And white boxers are often mistaken for american bulldogs, and that breed is also high on the kidnapping list for baiting or fighting.

You just never know what could happen when youre not there. Many dogs strangle themselves on their leads due to being left alone. Or end up with surgery or even die cause they were bored and chewed something they couldn't digest.

Dogs are not lawn ornaments, they are members of your family and should be treated as such. You wouldn't leave a child outside alone all day would you? Boxers are so much like children.....they love their humans and WILL become emotionally unbalanced without the interaction of their owners.

Please don't keep him outside.......instead, teach crate training INSIDE where you KNOW your pup will always be safe and secure!
