I like teaching my dogs to respond to me despite awesome other dogs.
I teach recall and sits and engagement from a very young age, then take puppies to play groups, classes, and dog parks, and work those things with other dog distractions. They get to play a little and socialize, which most puppies LOVE, and then I can work in our obedience to call them off of other dogs, out of play, etc.
It's a win-win situation if you are training regularly and can set them up to be successful, and it's a group of dogs/trainer you know or trust.
