I want my dog only mark when I allow him to. Any suggestion?

I don't want to neuter my dog. Wherever we go he starts marking there whether its someone's home or garden or vehicles. Many a times he also mark on other dog's owners. I want him to only mark when I allow him to. Any suggestion???????

As long as he's doing this outside the house, I don't think this is such a big issue. I know, they do this on almost every thing they come across. However, when you take the dog out, that's the time you give to your dog to enjoy himself, whether he enjoys that by sniffing the ground or by peeing.
I don't stop my dog from marking the territory, however I do set out a time for him, let say 10 seconds. I let him sniff for 10 seconds and then say, 'that's it, time to go'. If you practice this technique, this will at least reinforce an idea that whatever he wants to do, he has to do that quickly and that he can't have minutes to sniff the ground. Also, if he tries to pee on any human, simply be assertive and don't let him do so( keep him on leash). He will understand that sonner or latter.
My way of training is that I don't stop my dog from doing certain things that will stop him from BEING A DOG. It'll be unfair to expect from my dog not to bark at other dogs in the park. It'll be also unfair to expect from him not too pee as that's the very right that I've given him to do outside the house. It doesn't matter whether he does it once or twice. As long as he does it outside my house, It doesn't matter to me

Also, regarding neutering. I feel that neutering is more effective in terms of health prospective than behavioural one. And, it's more effective in females than males. You can have male dog who's never mated for years. As long as your dog doesn't know that, he will be happy all his life. Neutering males are recommended when you have two males in the same house. Or, when you adopt a stray dog, it's recommended to neuter them as they tend to have wild instinct. Also, if you have a female, it's best to have a puppy from her for atleast once in her life time and then getting her spayed. If you keep a female who's never mated, she's likely to develop health problems, most common being Pyometra ( Puss in the Uterus ).
Also, neutering a male dog can have several health benefits. Like, it overrules the possibility of prostate cancers in older dogs.

Thankyou navjot for ur replies of this one and previous questions

. I have teached him to come on call, walk on loose leash, not to cross the road until I give permission.
He even stops at any instant, in any situation, when given command. So usually walk him without leash.
But sometime, he feels other dog's scent much more interested than me. He stays at that very place even though I go on moving away.
Yes neutering is good, but I want my dog to enjoy his sex life so I don't want to prefer it.

Suraj, your are wiser in deciding what is good for you and your dog. But, I'd suggest you to keep your dog on leash all time. Like you said, your dog gets easily distracted from scents, in such cases it may be very risky to keep the dog without the leash. For instances, what if while crossing the road, your dog notices another dog and starts running after him. This can be potentially dangerous. Thus, it's best to keep the dog unleashed only in parks or anywhere where you can restrict him. So be very careful.

Also, as we get questions on neutering very often, I'd like to add another advantage neutering get in case of female dogs- Unwanted pregnancy. There are times when female dogs are in heat, you have to ensure the female is confined and not allowed to mingle with other dogs, especially males. I've seen those who have rare breeds like Irish Setters, Pointers, or any other breed that's uncommon and for which finding mates is difficult, they often resort to neutering.
