Default Socializaton

I've learned so much in the last month since Peanut joined our pack. What we were worried was aggression by the older dogs was just them teaching her proper doggie manners. The not only get along now, but she is respectful of them. Even when they are eating and she has finished hers. They all play so much and it brings us much joy to watch. She will be a much more balanced and happy dog, I'm so thankful I didn't intervene. (DH sometimes thought I should punish them, but I prevailed.) I'm grateful for everyone here who reassured me it was normal.

OOh I'm so glad you let 'nature' take its course. Sometimes it is very hard to watch!

It is easy to mistake a correction from a dog with aggression. We are programmed to think a growl or a lip curl are 'bad behaviour', when they are completely normal parts of a dogs vocabulary.
Dogs are not an aggressive species by nature, it would be unusual for a balanced well behaved dog to be aggressive towards a puppy. (Dogs that have suffered neglect or abuse, or have never developed any social skills themselves are a different story obviously)
All the behaviours that can look aggressive are actually designed to avoid any conflict, as social animals dogs want peace and harmony in their family groups.
I am so glad your little family are getting on so well, great news, keep up the good work.
