Older Dog Becoming Aggressive With Other Dog and Owner?

My dog is 15 yrs old and has got loads of lumps and bumps, coming up everywhere. Now he is fighting with my 6 yr old dog. The younger dog has been here since he was 10 weeks old, so they are used to each other. If I tell my older dog off, he starts growling at me.

Remember that your 15 year old dog is a very old dog. I don't know too many aged people who want the young whippersnappers hanging around all the time when the oldies want to sleep! It might also be time to for a vet check up, as the dog may be out of sorts with a painful condition like arthritis or similar and is in pain. I'm grumpy when I hurt! Good luck.

I agree the older dog probably is in pain and doesn't want to be bothered by anyone or anything. If he is not on pain meds maybe time to get on a program from your Vet and make his last years more comfortable.
