Nine hours is way too long to be left in a crate unless it's at night.  Could you have a pet sitter come and take them out for a walk in the middle of the day?  They really shouldn't be confined to a crate for that long.  

Not sure why at night is  any different than during the day if they had been to day care the day before.  When I took my dog to day care he never left the chair the next day.  It really depends on the dog and the individual circumstances.



@CrazyDaisy  I don't crate my dog.  She sleeps with me.  A lot of people crate their dog at night, though, and I don't have a problem with that. 

I have one in a crate at night and will crate both when necessary during the day.  A properly exercised dog can be crated at any time and for longer duration than one who may only have a yard to walk around or even have daily walks.

Someday, when scientists discover the center of the Universe....some people will be disappointed it is not them.
