My little dog is so mean to my golden retriever. It's been 3 years and he still guards the water bowl and?

.

When I get home from work the retriever just stays back even though he is excited so he doesn’t get in the little dogs way and the little dog will greet me and turn around and charge at the retriever biting him on his legs. I don’t know what to do. The retriever just tries to get out of his way so he doesn’t get bit. I feel sorry for him. The little dog is 15 years old and I love him very much, but man he is so mean to the retriever! What can I do to help this? Serious answers only please.

      Little dog is afraid ?

      Your little dog is the Alpha dog and the retriever knows it and respects it. I know you feel sorry for the retriever but that is canine hierarchy.

      The little dog is the pack leader and telling the retriever what to do. If YOU were the pack leader and they viewed themselves as "pack mates"… there would not be attacks..
      BUT. with that said.. your little dog is 15.. quite a old age and I would have trouble changing things and causing stress for a dog that age. Perhaps you could try to be a little more assertive with telling the small dog to back down. You CLAIM the space that the little dog is claiming.
