Sounds like he just needs a friendly reminder of who the boss is. Tank used to counter surf when we first got him. I used to put up a baby gate when I couldn't be in the kitchen with him so he couldn't have access to the counter. Then when we were out there together and he would even lift his head to sniff the counter I would give him a big firm "No!" and get between him and the counter. Eventually the behavior stopped (I also make sure there is nothing tempting him close to the counter edge too though)
My dearly departed Bre used to pee on the beds if she could gain access to them. It seems to be a common bully thing that they will pee on beds. I just didn't let her get on the beds or go in the bedrooms if I wasn't home. Maybe just train Emmitt to stay off the couch and beds. If you don't crate him maybe that would help too. That way when you aren't home he can't do the undesireable behaviors.
Good luck with him...he sure has a sweet face
