I want to know what your schedules are for feeding & walking? I am trying to figure one out for Raven and I think I have but would like hear from others here. Greatly appreciated!
Right now I am taking Raven out frequently, to stop her from peeing in the house but I think she is ready for a 3 times a day daily walk...

Lucca & Mia
This may not sound alot but I also have a very large garden with a 7ft fence all around, where they can run and chase each other to their hearts content.
0600hrs - wake up, let out into garden
0630hrs - breakfast
0700hrs - quick walk about 1 mile
1200hrs - quick walk about 1 mile and garden
1700hrs - tea
1800hrs - long walk about 4 miles.
Plus they play out in the garden when we are home, they don't go out for a walk late at night, as soon as it gets dark they goto sleep and don't move until the morning.

09:00 - wake up and breakfast
09:15 - 2 hour walk
14:00 - lunch

Gomez is 9 months and we just switched over to 3 walks a day with very good results - we don't have a garden, so walks are in the park.
Between meals and walks he mostly naps with some playing and training, but mostly naps...

I work a distance from home so Lola is home by herself during the day. Our schedule is as follows:
between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. up and out to the backyard
same timeframe, when I'm ready we go for a half hour to 1 hour walk could also include play session in off leash area depending on which dogs are there followed by breakfast
after breakfast she goes out into the backyard where she may or may not do anything, if time permits she will go for another 15 minute walk
4:45 - either out to the backyard or walk
followed by dinner then out to the backyard
7-8 out to the backyard or walk and outside playtime
9 - 10 walk
if I'm still up after 10 either a quick walk or out to the backyard before bed.
Tuesday nights we have a class, anywhere else I go she comes along, including shot errands.

ooo distances... I don't walk so much with my doggies as play with them. I thought being so far from the park and having such a little yard here, they'd get fat really quickly, but they're not. They get up to a full out sprint here despite the tiny size of the yard. So my job is just to keep them running. :D
9 AM Eat
9:02-9:20 wander outside
depending on my schedule, they might get to run and play in the afternoon for a couple of hours (every day except tuesday and wednesday)
5 PM out for a quick one
10 out again with a little wandering
2-4 AM (depending on the level of insomnia) they get to either go out quickly, or walk a good half hour and when we get home, they get 1/2 cup of food each.
I'm not a routine person, and my doggies are very, very, very flexible. On the weekend, they'll sleep in till 11 with us despite missing their mealtime.
Oh, and on the weekends, we really run them, or swim them... :) (so that Tuesday and Wed, they are still tired...)

When he wakes up, usually between 8:30am-10:00am, we go for a 2-3 hour off-leash walk/hike. Mostly its hiking but somedays we meet up with doggy friends.
Dodger will get anywhere from 2-6 mini walks/breaks where he can have a quick sniff and pee
Depending on my schedule Dodger will go out again between 3:00pm-6:00pm for at least a couple of hours.
Then he'll go out for about 15 minutes around 9:00pm and right before I go to bed to make sure he'll be good for the night!

We don't have a real schedule because my life when working revolves around when call time is. I try and get him out to the park for a least an hour before work and then home to sleep for him and me to work. I free feed Bud so he always has his food. When I get home we go for a walk for at least an hour or two. If it is still light enough we go to dog hill for some playtime.

Charley is also a home alone dog during the day, and now that I don't make a habit of going home at lunch here is his day. We also used to go out for a 'business check' about twice as often untill he was about 6 months old.
5:00 wake up, go outside, play fetch
5:30 - 7:00 breakfast, more playing
7:00 out one last time before I leave
16:00 - 17:00 go outside, play
19:00 - 19:30 walk
19:30 - 20:00 play
21:00 - out for the last time of the night
I should point out that I do not just leave him in the back yard to entertain himself, if he's outside I am (otherwise he just lays there waiting for me to get back), when I go in, he comes in. Also, due to his size, playing and doing obedience for a half hour gives him about as much exercise as a walk would, but by playing in the morning instead of walking, he seems less stressed when I leave for the day (like he's been able to get his fill of attention or something)

Our weekday schedule tends to be:
6:50 - go out for what is supposed to be a quick walk around the block
7:15 - breakfast
7:30 - one last pee break for Jack
Noonish - pee break for all
5ish - all out for a pee, supper around 5:15
6ish - Depending on the mood of the three (and of ourselves) they will either get a long walk (1 hour +/-) or we will take them to the park for a good off leash run (30 mins). Lately the park has been winning as they have been little monsters on their walks.
Weekends are similiar except they get to the park in the mornings and are wiped out for the rest of the day.
