Restless mini-Schnauzer

My 8 year old mini-Schnauzer becomes restless in the evening. He continues to hit me with his paw. I take him out to pee and/or poop. He finishes his business and we head back in. He continues the behavior. this behavior started about 2 weeks ago. It starts around 5 PM and he settles down about 8 PM. He has water and food.
I’m not sure what causes this behavior. do you have any ideas?

Jeanne, sorry to hear about your pup! Perhaps he’s a bit bored or wants attention, especially that time of day when you get home from work and he’s ready to play. Try giving him a toy, playing fetch or a bone to keep him entertained.
