Laurie, I know what you mean about worrying your dog will pee in someone else's house. Worry is too stressful for a short visit. bellly bands and doggy panties can work. I did the High Holidays at my brother in-laws in VA, we took Khloe and it was stressful, she did great, my DH was so stressed it made it unpleasent, next time I will take the fancy panties just for his peace of mind.
cpbittner, Just because a dog is neutered, by know means stops them from marking, marking behavior is in their DNA it is territorial, and a way of communicating with other dogs. Catching them once is not enough it is just as hard as house training, sometimes harder depending on the dog, it takes patience and reinforcement over and over. You need to watch your dog at all times and that is hard, you have to know their signs...they have them even for marking, a sniff a bend of the body subtle. When not watching your dog, put your dog in his crate or an area of the house that is easy to clean. I suggest you get a black light bar and check your walls for missed tiny spots...it can be shocking, clean them well and then go over them with vinger. All the best in resolving this problem.
