Ok, so I've recently noticed my dog has been peeing..or more so marking? on people's legs while we're at the dog park.
The first couple times I thought ok, maybe it was an accident because some people were sitting on a bench & there were a bunch of dogs nearby as well as a trash can full of poo bags.
Then I noticed him doing it a couple more times, same area.
Then I noticed he would take a detour from playing with the other dogs and find a nice lonely human leg out in the field, and piddle.

I dont know why he is doing this. He has NEVER done this at home, or anywhere else. It only seems to be at the dog park.

Is this just a thing that tends to happen at dog parks? Is he just overwhelmed by all the doggy scents that he pees/marks wherever, no matter where it is? Are people just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or is there something else going on?
How would I go about correcting this? It's really getting to be embarassing.
