I did quite a bit of research on dog houses before finally choosing this one. For this particular house, Walmart had the lowest price by far, and the shipping fee ($8 for Priority Shipping) was so low I thought it was a mistake at first. I did have the option of getting "free shipping" to a Walmart Store, but I figured the $8 was well worth not having to load/unload it myself.
I bought this for my newly adopted 60-lb. pit bull mix, and it fits her very well; she has room to lie down, turn around, and stand up (if she keeps her head low). However, my 100-lb. dog is way too big for it. I don't recommend this one for larger breeds!
Minor Complaints: some of the moulding in the front was cracked and a little dented upon arrival; the roof was missing a hole in which to insert a screw; and the "floor boards" tend to shift around on the ground. Overall, I don't think any of these are a big deal. The house does its job—that is, provide shelter from the elements—and it was such a good deal that I don't really care. It still looks nice, and everyone comments on how "cute" it is. Once I bought a soft crate bed/bumper, the floor boards stayed put and my dog climbed right in.
It was also very easy to assemble, and it stays nice and dry in the rain.
