When school is in session, they generally get left for about eight hours.
I'll have an off period next year, though, so if it's conveniently located first, fourth, fifth, or seventh period, I'll be able to pop in earlier, leave later, or come home in the middle of the day.

3-4 hours. Any longer and I'm not happy.

I have always lived with others (family, now roommates) so I have never really had to leave them alone for many hours on a regular basis.

Once I am out of school and working full time I will be living alone and they will have to be alone for a typical 8 work day plus commute and I am fine with that. Honestly pretty well all of my downtime is spent with them, training, hiking swimming, car shows that they can tag along to in the summer or at home relaxing. So when they are home they just asleep anyways and even the little guy can easily hold it for 8 hours if he gets a good long walk or jog in the morning. Plus they have each other to play with if. I will likely send Radar to daycare a couple days a week or drop him off at my parents or sisters if they are home to break it up for him, but he would be okay without it.

I'm lucky that right now I have a ridiculously flexible schedule so my dogs very rarely (maybe once a month?) need to be crated for more than 2 and a half hours at a time. However, they've gone 10hours overnight before so while I wouldn't be comfortable with it they could go that long if I really needed. I think that anything over 7 hours during the day would make me uncomfortable.
