I try to limit my dog interaction with strangers but to no avail,help?

My overfriendly lab MAX is a big socializer.Be it a watchman on duty or even passers by he wants to meet and greet everyone.Even when we are on a walk in the morning he wags his tail at people we pass dragging me to be able to meet them I want him to be a little reserved about whom to meet (there is a lab in my bldng who is ok with anyone touching him but never makes the first move) Also when someone calls MAX to pet him , he pees in excitement (or acceptance of the domination) Hope this will go away with time.I try to limit his interaction with strangers but to no avail pls advice looking forward to your suggestions

He's still a puppy. He thinks watchman and passer-bys are yet another guys he can play with. This is normal. He'll learn whom he should be wary of and whome he should be friendly with.
Peeing is definately a result of excitement but it's not a sign of acceptance of dominance. It's just that his bladders are weak and he's not able to control his urine very long. Excitment cause him to let his urine off.

Is your dog also a Lab? If so Labradors are retrievers bred to flush and retrieve birds on a hunt. Since there would be many hunters with their own individual dogs and they should not show aggression, they are bred to be somewhat friendly - that is good temperament for the breed and is preferable. That is not to say some Labs cannot show guarding instinct (Buckingham Palace uses Labradors for guarding). In any case the guarding instinct (Territorial) only shows up at almost full maturity in such breeds which in your case could be 2 to 2 1/2 years of age.
