Right now, my Roshi is 3.5 months old. When I got him at 2 months, I brought him to work, caged him for 4 hours (with potty breaks) and 1/2 hr-1 hr play time at lunch, and then another 4 hours of caged time. At night, I would play with him. However, he got difficult with the potty at work (I couldn't stand outside for 1/2 hr just to wait for his pee), so I left him at home for a few days. His built up energy level was WAY too high when I got home. Now I sent him to day care where he can spend it all there, and when he comes home at night with me, he just need his 30 min playtime with me, or 10-15 min walk (his soft paw pads could only handle so much). And the rest of time, he rather be left alone and chew on his toys in the corner (yes, I picked a somewhat loner puppy from the litter). On the weekends, he's also pretty mellow (since he already had a whole week of craziness). Just need 2 to 3 10-15 min walks, some play and training time, and many hours of sleep to recharge for another week of craziness!
Maybe you can have some days in daycare (it's great for socialization and also lets it use up energy) and some days it can stay home. I think that's what I'm going to do once Roshi gets a bit older (p/t daycare and p/t go to work with me) and more potty trained (pee on command).
