He is exhibiting alph behavior and trying to "protect" you/ First he needs to quickly learn that growling at your children is not appropriate or it could quickly esclate to nipping. There is a book, The dog Listener, that address' this behavior. I don't agree with all her techniques but she has some valid points. I'm at work and can't remember the author. I'll try to remember to e-mail it to you when I get home.

Maybe you should try some "timeout" when he does that. You don't want to have it escalate into more aggresssive behavior.
