You may have pegged it, he can be a little cowed. I'm afraid it's a
result of using a choker coller. It work well on my Lab mix but it may
have been too much for the Vizsla, as soon as I realized it wasn't
effective for him we went to verbal training. He pees on me and my
oldest son all the time plus our guest. My wife daughter and
sister-in-law, he sees daily and does not do it to them very often.
I've adopted strays that would crawl to me on their belly and roll
over to let me pet them. Now that's submissive behavior, the peeing I
think has a bit more to it, and it could be the breeding. His parents
were hunters that stayed outside, we bought ours as a pet. I thought
that might have something to do with it.
