|My ex husband's springer Ruger used to do that...needless to say I'm glad they're both gone.
It was seriously disgusting, and annoying. I had to bathe my boys sometimes several times a week because he was almost obsessive about getting them every chance he had. Never in the house, but the second we got outside his leg was up and it became his primary focus. Over and over and over again, he'd lift his leg and try even if he had no wee left in him if they were laying in the grass or whatever. He was not neutered (not my choice in the least, I have four males of my own, all neutered, none have ever marked a thing).
I saw similar behavior all the time in unneutered males when I volunteered at my local shelter. It's one of the reasons why neutering my guys was a priority.
I too think it's a dominance thing...although Ruger was also bat crap crazy due to what I believe was extremely messed up breeding so....
