my dog is going up and down the stairs, like we are going to bed but we are not. He goes up and down all day and night?
Is your dog getting enough exercise? An under-exercised dog can lead to on that will start doing things to burn off the extra energy. Have yu checked to make sure something isn't going on upstairs that isn't suppose to? If it continues, have you dog checked out by your vet. There are several medical conditions that can cause anxious behavior. Out of whack thyroid levels to mention just one.
