As a former raiser and trainer of Guide Dogs for the Blind, I would encounter this all the time. My response was "great, you can help me train." Then tell them they are to only to pet the dog when it is sitting still, and to pull the hand away when it fusses or breaks the sit. Most important is to teach the dog to be neutral to people and YOU, not other people should be the center of its world. A pet groomer should honor the wishes of the owner as that is good customer service.
