Ok.. I understand that fact... but I have a toy poodle along with my 9 week old lab... the toy poodle is smaller than the lab already and there's about a 10 lbs diffrence. The toy poodle is about 8 years old. And the two of them get into spats all the time. Buddy (the lab) is allways wanting to play, and he does. Skye (The toy poodle) isn't too much for playing and only tries to take chunks out of Buddy; but Skye is so small he can really do nothing but growl and have this sound of a furishous beast. Is there any way I can train Buddy to leave Skye alone? I haven't taken any action on this yet because im scared that I might do something that will only make it worse.
