I think it depends on your area. Growing up in WV I heard this one a lot. I don't know the story behind it though.
And, no, I've never spit in my dog's mouth. I do know a guy who did that to all of his coonhounds when he brought home a new pup to add to the pack. He passed on a few years ago or I'd ask him.

You are the FIRST person that I have "met" that has heard of this before! I even tried Googling it when she told me and came up with nothing.

I've also heard of tying a lock of your hair around their neck (or collar) when they are pups to bond them closer to you.

If you pee on my house, it's still mine.

This whole spitting in a dogs mouth concept is so bazar that I google it, and look at the answer I found from a person who answered this same question in Yahoo Answers-

"Goodness, I never tried that, however when I was breeding my Miniature Schnauzers, I blew very carefully into their nostrils every time I picked them up in order to set my scent on them. I followed up on every puppy I ever bred and everyone of them remembered me, so I know that works.
Spitting sounds kind of gross."

People are very, very interesting.
