Can a dog be left alone for 8 hours?

For Adult dogs, Yes, it is generally, alright to leave your dogs for 8 – 9 hours, alone. Even in a Crate (dog kennel), 8 – 9 hours is usually alright. But for dogs under 2 years old, I would not advise leaving them in a crate longer than 6 hours if possible, or be prepared to clean the crate and bath a dog.
