I control the interactions, and make sure the dogs are on their best behavior. They can absolutely greet the staff, but behave yourself and don't lose control.
I do not allow the vets (or any other staff) to take my dogs anywhere for any reason. If my dogs need something done, I take them back, I tell them what to do, or hold them, and the staff does what they need to do.
My vet knows that my dogs will listen to my every word, so they completely allow it. The only time I am not with my dog is for a routine spay/neuter, other than that I make it a requirement to be there. Thank god my vet and I have a great relationship!
