|I'd definitely ask permission, and offer to leave her in the car too, weather permitting. Letting her see how your current dog is doing, and what they're like with you and how you handle them often gives them a good idea of the kind of home you'll provide for their pup, HOWEVER, it is definitely something that should be left up to them.
When we went to look at Ria's litter(an accidental farm litter that they were just sending off to 'good' homes), Charlie initially stayed in the car. Eventually, after my fiance decided he liked Ria best, we brought her away from the other puppies to interact with her on her own(to get a better idea of her temperament), and then to let her meet Charlie.
But we checked with the owners first, made sure we had the clear to do so.
I know if I was a breeder, I'd want people checking with me first rather than randomly bringing their dogs with them(assuming they don't leave them in the vehicle to begin with). I'm NOT a breeder, and I STILL have people bringing their dogs to my house all the time - it drives me nuts, I had to start giving people trouble for it, because it stresses Charlie out. Definitely ask first, either way.
