How to choose a dog house

Do you have a decent dog house for your dog? Help me figure out what should be simple: getting a dog house. I'm overwhelmed by the choices and would appreciate actual brand recommendations. We need a dog house that will be somewhat insulated because the dog might need to use it for up to 6 hours in the wintry midwest. We cannot build one, and we can't spend more than a couple of hundred. I have hesitated to get a dog house because the I was worried about it becoming a raccoon house, fox house, possum house. Do you use that door with the electronic collar entry to prevent this? Does that seem like a good idea?

Help me help my dog

I was just sitting outside on my friend's lawn with my dog, who was tied to a tree branch about 20 feet away (that I checked for strength before tying her up) and quietly watching squirrels. A woman walked by and smiled at us, and my dog lunged at her, breaking the tree branch, and proceeded to jump up on her and ram her nose into her, barking. I feel absolutely terrible and have no idea how to fix this. [more inside]

Why is my normally well behaved dog suddenly aggressive toward preteen and teenage boys?

Why is my normally well behaved dog suddenly aggressive toward preteen and teenage boys? I have a 2 1/2 year old male german shepherd who is very well trained and usually extremely happy and well behaved. He is from a breeder that has 30 years of experience breeding working german shepherds and his easy going temperment is one of the things we love about him. Until a week ago I would not have hesitated to let any toddler or child pet him or interact with him. Suddenly he has exhibited an extreme dislike for preteen and teenage boys. [more inside]
