It's a requirement if a dog lives with me. I start with puppies. They have visits at friends, then whole afternoons, then evenings. I want a well rounded dog who can learn to not just survive without mom/dad but thrive, enjoy life, still play, eat, etc.

That's a good way of looking at it! I want him to enjoy life without me always being right there :) I think a week of playing with other friendly dogs will do him good. I'm going to miss him like crazy though! I've gotten used to the nose pokes every 2 minutes ;)
I should have added that I also see the "other side" as I do dog boarding on a referral basis through a few trainers, etc. It's so sad to see some of the dogs and how stressed out they get. My first Dobe also was a horrible Momma's boy and I learned some tough lessons that way!

I'm sur I miss mine more than they miss me :)
