Peeing when greeting

So Vida is 1 week shy of 5 weeks, and for about the past month, any time she greets someone who's part of the family, she pees. She didn't used to do this. Why'd she start and how can I get her to stop? She does it even if she peed outside within the past 5 minutes.

First get her checked for an UTI

Before meeting people, have her completely void her bladder. Have the stranger give her treats when she acts confident and greets properly. Ignore her when she pees. Don't raise your voice or correct. Ignore the behavior, reward the desired behavior. Be sure to socialize her well - different types of people, places, situations.

She doesn't do it with strangers, it's just when my roommates come home, so I know it's not a UTI. It's only when she hasn't seen the roommates in a few hours. She even does this after just coming back in the house from peeing.

Your dog is suddenly urinating at 5 months old (I assume you meant months and not weeks, correct me if I'm wrong) - the first basic thing to do is check for infection or UTI.

If she is cleared health-wise, then you can begin to address the behavioral aspect of dealing with a submissive urinator.

Took Vida to the vet (I love having a 24 hour vet clinic nearby), got her checked out. No UTI. The vet said it's submissive/excited peeing. How do I deal with this?
