    Im talking about dogs, who just can’t relax, always pacing, jumps up at any sort of noise, sleeps but never really sleeps lol.

    So basically this dog is just pacing around (probably panting?) even in the owner’s presence, without any hint of what may relieve the anxiety? right?

    I’d probably really look deep into the dog’s diet and exercise. After that really consider blood work (possible HYPERthyroidism) or for any other signs of problems. Dogs showing signs of anxiety are distressed over something and if there isn’t a hint to what it is I am thinking medical. If you dont rule that out you will drive yourself crazy trying to battle mother nature. Sounds like a very troubled dog…
