Re: Older Dog Attacking Puppy

Some mature dogs do not handle small puppies well...I would definetly use a crate and separate them for the most part...Older dogs seem to tolerate young dogs much better, 4-5 mo old, as pup learns respect much better at that age...I do not think rolling a dog over is much of a correction, think pic...
