Thank you, I do think you're right on this one.

We're just always open to others thoughts but in the end, we make our own decisions.

The one thing I've alwayyyyyys been on the fence or paranoid about is correcting for using the bathroom inside.
I want to correct him if he lifts his leg inside but then I've heard people say they don't know they're being corrected for the "inside" part, only the peeing part?!

If it's worked for you and @texasred, and this is also what our trainer has also recommended I think the only option is to try. Wish I could just jump in that little brain of theirs. haha

Again, he doesn't mark inside ours on a regular basis, it's only if another dog enters or we go to somewhere with a dog.

In a way this is true.
I don't correct puppies, for accidents inside. Or even a dog that's feeling under the weather.
I just look at marking a little differently.
Its not a dog needing to use the restroom, and me missing the cues.
Its a dog marking its territory.
Outside mine can mark, and scratch the ground, slinging dirt till their hearts content. But inside, they get a light correction.

Who told you they don't understand the correction and what are they basing it on?

If he does something he shouldn't and you offer an appropriate correction, I think that's the key..what they get is "I won't do that again!". Especially with V's who are just so smart and so eager to please.

So, if he goes in the house and you catch him..not later!...then a stern "NO!" delivered right to his face will work. The exceptions are puppies or if they're sick, in which case the problem is beyond their control.

Just generally it's something you hear - it's very common to read online and a common statement made by people. I don't think its that they don't understand the correction in general, it's that they don't understand which PART they are being corrected for - Again, Not my opinion! I'm still unsure because I'm not in a dog's mind, just what "they say" lol. Give a quick google.

We're going to our fiends cottage this weekend and he's marked there before so I think I'll hover like a hawk for the first 20 and walk him around the house - if he lifts his leg I'm on it!

You know, you "Just" hear a lot of stuff that's based on anything and everything except the facts...neutering too, it's based on an insufficient understanding of the current facts. +1 for you and your guy that you question all you hear and not just blindly accept it.

Not to put too fine a point on it, your Vizsla will really know which part of it you are correcting if you are clear and consistent. Recall that everything else is just a dog, so take well intentioned advice from others accordingly.

Yeah, I think we're going to just go that route - above all I agree that consistency is key always. And yes, we do like to do our research and make the final decision within our household.
Thanks for your help and feedback @gingerling!
