He may be feeling some sadness at leaving his friends, or he may be tired from the stimulation. Give it a few days. Get back on a routine, and make sure he's getting enough exercise and socialization with other dogs.

I had a similar experience once. We went away for a three week trip, and Mia clearly was under the impression that she was being rehomed. When I came back, she didn't even recognize me. She looked at me from behind the legs of the woman she stayed with, sniffing the air cautiously, when suddenly her eyes got big and she jumped on top of me, not letting another dog near me. It does hurt, even to think about now. It happened during a particularly difficult time in my life, so I set about transforming our relationship, which really meant reclaiming the relationship we had prior to the changes. It took time, but it was worth it.
