Yeah I could see that being an issue. With Champs Camp and multiple international assignments for singles, Dobbs is away for several days at a time. Then there's the whole fatigue factor. That could be frustrating for a partner.

Maybe he received a good offer to do show skating that was just too hard to turn down. It's unfortunate to see, but they could always re-team if he wanted to compete again some day.
