Default Good/bad for socializing?

Yogi is four months old and loves to meet people who I've already said something to. Otherwise he sits by me and stares, almost as though he's waiting for my cue that it's ok. Is this ok behavior? My husband said he's a "watcher"...
Also... How do you handle people walking up and petting without permission? It drives me nuts. I've been taking Yogi places a lot more lately to meet different shaped/sized/colored dogs and people. The gals at the pet store constantly give him treats and I don't want them to. How do I politely tell them to stop without making it awkward?

Thanks.
