Hi! and :welcome: It sounds like this might be a bit much for Rufus. How old is this new puppy? Are you leaving Rufus and the puppy alone when you're not able to supervise?

Perhaps you could play some "look at that" games with Rufus. Put the puppy in another room behind a baby gate, or a sliding glass door...maybe even just in a kennel in the living room and encourage Rufus to first look at the puppy-every time he does he is rewarded. Then if you think that's not too stressful, only reward when he investigates a little closer to the puppy?

Sorry for the wait! Please be sure to read all of the stickies at the tops of each section before posting, as some of those may answer your above questions. You should def check out the Multi-dog threads, bringing a new dog home thread, and how to properly introduce a new dog thread...all can be found at the top area of the Training Section.
