As a puppy they cannot hold their bladder for that long, and some would even poop in the crate. You would come home to a puppy covered in the stuff, and very unhappy. It also makes it very hard to potty train them. As you are teaching them to potty in the crate.
Only as they mature can they go 6 hours in a crate.

At 11 mos I haven't had Cali in crate for more that 3.5 hours. She's ok but bursts out of that door before I'm done unlatching the bottom latch lol. We still try and make that crate the happiest place in the house. So far so good.

Kaylee just turned 2 at the end of October and she has one day where we are gone for 9hrs :( She does ok, but she needs a lot of attention when we get home (and lots of frisbee, games etc.). Like TR mentioned, this really wouldn't be possible with a puppy though.
