my puppys getting too big for his britches!

My 11 week old pembroke has been very nasty with the lab my in-laws have. he will take his toys and run, and today he was growling and snarling at him as if the little 11 weeker will jump on at him. He plays very well with a sheltie in the family, so I'm thinking he might not know how to play with the larger dog. Luckily, the lab has been very very tolerant of the little corgi, but i'm nervous the aggressive behavior may progress into his later years. how sould I work with him with this?

Ace is almost 2 and has no problem with dogs his own size but the larger ones he acts terrified of.. i think Ace's issues comes from my aunts Goldy attacking him >:

I have been taking him to the Dog park and as the big ones come in one at a time he is slowly getting used to them and wants to play =)

So it might be something the little guy has to get used to.. but like Geri said doggy classes can do wonders~ (wish i could find some near by to take ace too >: )

Did you say you got him from a pet store? If you did, pet store pups tend to be taken from their mom and littermates way too young, and they don't learn proper socialization. You should get him to a puppy obedience class as soon as possible; it will be a great help! Sid is almost 4 and we've never stopped going to classes. It's good for both of us :)
