The pet store employees have always asked before giving my dog a treat.
Nobody has ever pet my dog without asking. I may be intimidating. I don't know, but they never have. My husband took Riley out once and a woman walked up and started roughing him up around the muzzle. I was not pleased when he told me. I may have lectured quite a bit....
When I'm out with my dog my focus is on my dog and the people around us at all times. Or everything around us (other dogs, cats, trash can lids banging). If we're doing serious training I put a vest on him that says "do not pet".
I have allowed people to pet him, but they ask first.

He will always be in my heart.
