Absolutely. My 15 year old Shih-Tzu had Sundowner's. Just after dark he would wander around the room over and over again, taking the same path. Then he would walk around in a tight circle in one spot. It would drive me nuts. But I found that I could go over to him and cup his face in my hands and talk to him, and as soon as I got him to focus on me, he would calm down. Unfortunately, as it was with Frankie, it is my understanding that Sundowning is an end-of-life phenomenon. But we miss him.
