Cute dog!  What was his reason for flat out refusing to consider Doggie Daycare?

Explain that you are overwhelmed and you need help caring for your dog.  Particular days you guys are both working crazy hours and your dog can’t sit at home crossing his/her paws for 12+ hours and you’d like to give day care a try for X weeks to see if it helps your situation.

She is super cute! 

Honestly, if I were in your situation, I would just pack him a lunch and take her to day care.  It is obvious that you are trying to do the right thing for the dog and it isn’t fair to leave a dog home alone for that long. 

Maybe try to sit him down and explain to him that the dogs needs are just important as his.  She needs to be properly cared for during the times that you can’t be there. 

Good luck!  I know it can be hard trying to get through when they are so stubborn about something, but this is a little life that he needs to help care for.  What if you do get another dog?  What about children, too?
