Hello, first of all, I'm sorry for the late reply. Is your dog conscious when he does that? Does your dog react when you call your dog?
If your dog does such a thing unconsciously, it is likely to be seize. In older dogs, seizure can be caused by lesions inside the brain, hydrocephalus, meningitis, and hepatic encephalopathy. For an accurate test, you may need to visit an animal hospital for blood tests and mri, x-ray tests.

You can't stop seizure with the steps you can do at home. Please make a reservation at the animal hospital quickly and visit.
