|I work from home a majority of the week as well and have had to figure out ways to keep Kitsune entertained while I get my work done.
Does your dog like food? Kitsune likes his kong, I always stuff it with different things and then freeze it so it takes him longer to get all the food out.
Another thing I do that he has fun with is I hide small pieces of treats all over the house for him to find. It's like a little scavenger hunt for him and he seems to have a lot of fun with it.
Also I make sure to set plenty of time aside in my schedule to spend playing with him and I always take a nice long walk with him in the morning before I start working. Walks, play (which it sounds like you do already), and training sessions before starting your work or during breaks can help keep your dogs mind and body active so they'll be more content to just relax while your working.
Try not to feel too guilty, a lot of dogs nap a lot during the day and I'd bet that even at day care he takes some breaks from playing to relax/nap.
