|When Ollie was a young puppy, he sometimes did this, too. If you usually take your dog out after they eat, they come to associate eating with peeing. If you then stop letting your dog potty outside, but they have to go, and they are only 4 months old and so still new to this whole potty thing, they pee near their bowl since they associate eating with peeing.
Try taking yoru dog out as soon as they are done eating. That should resolve the problem. Once your dog is more reliably housetrained and is old enough to hold their pee a bit longer, then you can see if this problem resurfaces by waiting longer and longer times after eating to let your dog to potty.
