What can I do to help my dogs cope with the hours left home alone while I'm at work?

After a year of unemployment, I'm about to go back to work full time (I think . . . fingers crossed). My two dogs have become accustomed to being with me most of the time and now will be left home alone for about nine hours a day.
I'm looking for ideas of how to keep them from being too bored during the day, good dog toys or techniques to help them adjust.
I'm not sure it matters but here are their details just in case: one is a Glen of Imaal, about eight years old, and the dominant dog in the family and the other is a large mixed breed, about three and a half years old. Both are boys and relatively mellow.
