Another option is to give them a pup cup if the bakery doesn't carry dog-friendly goodies. Ask the associate if you are unsure. Another option is to visit a dog bakery full of delicious morsels made for them. Do watch your dogs if the treats are near where they can reach, or you may be buying more goodies than you planned.
Go to a street Festival: Street festivals are dog-friendly since most are outside. Just remember to clean up poop. Considering most dogs relish in the outdoors, smelling different scents, greeting people, meeting dogs, and receiving attention, festivals are an ideal situation for very friendly dogs. Also, if food vendors are in the area, they display in jars or sealed containers, so your pup will not be able to sneak in a bite or two. I know my dog can smell food better than she listens and shifts into stealth mode, trying to sneak in snacks.
