: My 1 year old JR is very rough with our 8 week old pup, he is only trying to play, he shows NO sign of jealousy. We don't want Mulligan to hurt him but at the same time we need to protect the pup. At present we will give Mulligan a "time out" by putting him in the bathroom everytime the pup yelps. They have only been together for 1 day but I don't want Mulligan to get jealous etc. I suspect he will chill in a couple of day's but meanwhile we would like your input.
: Thanks as allway's

Hi Danny,
I don't let my puppies play with older dogs, untill the get some age on them for this very reason. There have been previous posts about puppies getting hurt because of this, and puppies can be obnoxious in playing and not meaning to the old dog hurt them.

I would keep them apart for a while and see what happens.
