Hello,
I am sorry to hear about what is happening with your Golden Doodle. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
This sounds like a seizure or fit, especially that he does not respond to you for a moment, and then acts like nothing happened.
Seizures can be caused by many different things: liver disease (especially a "liver shunt"), hypothyroidism, low blood sugar, epilepsy. Brain tumors cause them, but that is usually in older dogs.
When I see a dog that has had seizures, I do some basic blood tests to look for low blood sugar, low thyroid, liver disease, etc. If that is all normal, and these episodes continue, he may be epileptic.
I would take a video of the next one, to show your veterinarian or post here.
If he is epileptic, he will continue to have seizures. If they happen more often than once a month, I would consider starting him on medication.
Sometimes a dog has a seizure or two, and then never again. I hope he does not do it again, but if he does, try to get it on video and have some blood tests done.
Let me know if I can help with or answer anything else.
