As you may or may not know, I work as a veterinary practice manager (I do some tech work too), and I can bring Flip to work with me every day. I have been (for the most part) dragging him around with me wherever I go.
I left him home today for the first time (crated) since Saturday when we picked him up.

He is about 6 months old, according to the rescue.

Is this bad for him? Will I cause him to become too attached to me if I keep bringing to work with me? I don't want him to get separation anxiety. He pretty much wants to be with me all the time, but he isn't demanding, he just kinda flops out next to me, at home, work, etc.

I think if he's a poodle he wants to be with you all the time by nature. If you leave him home sometimes and take him sometimes, that's a better balance so that if you couldn't take him with you for some reason or things changed, he wouldn't expect anything. Change up the days you take him and leave him so that he just never knows. That's what they tell you to do with cockatoos that like to be with their people and will easily come to expect something and not given it scream to high heaven.
