My dog also did that, but then she seemed to get used to me coming home and stopped peeing when she got exited, they skip that stage after a month or too. It also helps if you approach them slowly and not speak until you bend and then pet them

You have to start talking to him before you get to close to him. And actually at five months he's a bit young. They just do that. Make sure you speak in a very gental way. Don't yell or he'll always do that.

Lack of ConfidenceTypically the "excited" urination is just a result of a lack of confidence. Enroll your pup in a puppy preschool class somewhere that specializes in opperant conditioning, clicker training, or kindness training... A class that allows supervised play time off leash, and encourages you to visit with everyones puppies. The more people and dogs he meets, and the more things he learns, the more his confidence will grow. :)

As a trainer I see this on a regular basis, and I see dogs who become confident, outgoing, and much happier as classes go on.

Good luck with your pupper.

Excitement. Many dogs (especially puppies) get over-excited at the prospect of a visitor. Does your boyfriend say hello to the puppy whilst it is still excited? If so, ask him to ignore your puppy when he first enters until the puppy is calm. This may seem cruel, but it teaches your dog that they are rewarded for being calm and are not praised for over-excited behaviour. Many puppies will grow out of this in time.
