Is he by any chance excited when he does that?
I'm no "professional" But he could be wanting that person to pat his stomach and at the same time gets so excited that he starts peeing lol, I've had dogs that pee when they're excited, so yer; maybe, maybe not in your case.

Perhaps excitement, but more likely submissive wetting, showing the person that it accepts their higher rank. Many dogs eventually outgrow it, but you can reduce it by building the dog's confidence up. Start with obedience training. The key to most behavior problems is approaching things using the dog's natural instincts. Dogs see all the people and dogs in the household as a pack with each having their own rank in the pack and a top dog. Life is much easier if the 2 legged pack members outrank the 4 legged ones. You can learn to play the role of top dog by reading some books or going to a good obedience class. A good obedience class or book is about you being top dog, not about rewarding standard commands with a treat. Start at www.dogsbestfriend.com As you praise the dog for following your commands, it will build its confidence.
Play tug of war with the dog and lose. However at the end of the game, take the rope or toy and put it up, less the dog becomes confused about who is top dog. Ropes from the pets' store quickly turn to hazardous shreds. Ones I made lasted much better. Go to a hardware or home center that sells rope by the foot. Buy 2' of 3/4" poly rope. Melt the ends, and tie knots in it. Get them as tight as possible, put it in a vise and pound it with a hammer. Watch carefully, and be ready to discard when it comes apart.
Finally, make sure it has a den to live in. If you are not using a crate, buy one. The dog may be happier in its den than loose in the house. It relaxes, it feels safe in its den. It rests, the body slows down reducing the need for water and relieving its self. Dogs that have been crated all along do very well. Many of them will rest in their crates even when the door is open. I think the plastic ones give the dog more of a safe, enclosed den feeling. Metal ones can be put in a corner or covered with something the dog can't pull in and chew. Select a crate just big enough for the full grown dog to stretch out in.
A dog that has not been crated since it was little, may take some work. Start out just putting its toys and treats in the crate. Praise it for going in. Feed it in the crate. This is also an easy way to maintain order at feeding time for more than one dog.

It very well may be submissive peeing and building his confidence should help. I would also make sure that he is always treated fairly by everyone in the house and that no one is scaring him by accident. (This may not be the problem but it is better to make sure)
I have to disagree with Aster about the crate. Some dogs enjoy having a crate and it works well for them and their people. Some of us don’t use crates and don’t’ care for their use. It will depend on the dog and dog’s person. I would say if a dog has to be forced to get used to the crate and doesn’t like it to begin, there is no reason to force the issue. But if you have to, Aster’s method should work well.

O.M.G i had that same problem with my dog before he would roll over on his back and (urinate- Pee) He does that cause he gets to exsied (you know how when people get excided we get all happy and wonderey and jumping up and down) well some dogs way to show there exsited is they pee. what i would do is that if you would see him doing that tell him (no pee pee and then say his name and say that 3 times for everytime he does it) also let him spin more time with those certain people so when he sees them he won't get too exsited cause he's been seeing them. take it from me note: this has happend to one of my dogs before! ps. he stops now!
