How do I get my puppy to stop peeing in excitement whenever she sees me upon my return?

My 9mos+ mini doxie, Gertie, has started, in recent weeks, to pee in excitement whenever I or my other dog, Schroeder (Weimaraner, 7yrs old) return from being out/away. Sometimes she just squats, other times, she'll roll over and pee on herself a bit. She's pretty shy but not around me and her brother (in fact, she's pretty crazy about him) so I don't think she's doing it out of fear. As with her breed, she's been very stubborn about house training (Schroeder was house trained in just over a month so this has been my lesson in patience) so, even tho she's gotten better, I end up cleaning up urine about once a day, sometimes more now that she's also excitement peeing. How do I get her to stop? Is that even possible? Is this just a phase? I never experienced this with Schroeder so I'm at a bit of a loss.
