Yes I would describe him as anxious... he has some mild SA, he whines a lot, I can only pet him so much if I pet him a lot he whines really loudly, yips and tries to climb on top of me. If he doesn't get at least a walk during the day he will just lay around and lick his front leg, I've had to put a cone on him before because of it. He is always stressing over what Xena is doing, just overall he is on edge. If he stops eating and I start to stress over it he ends up missing even more meals because he won't eat if I'm stressed out and in the same room as his food.

But it's not just that he doesn't take treats either in training, he just seems very disinterested in food in general. He might every once in a while take a treat from me but if anyone else tries forget it, he wouldn't even take raw meat from people who didn't believe me and tried. Could that be related to stress?
