While I'm not an expert, dogs clearly seem to bond with their humans over random people who many play with them or even feed them. My dog enjoys playing with other dogs and so taking him to a kennel owned by a friend when we go away really isn't a burden for him. But you can bet that as soon as we get back he will leave his dog friends and run out into our car expecting us to take him 'home'. He always does that with us, and I've never seem him do it with anyone else. He's been with us since he was a puppy. We feed him, take care of him and provide him with lots of affection and a warm place to sleep at night. When he wakes up in the morning he knows we will be there to greet him, and we know he will be there to greet us. It's a mutually beneficial relationship that we seem to have exclusively with each other. At least for now.
