Angry He's hurting her (I think) :(

We have Max an 8 month old Collie/Lurcher cross and when he was 5 months old we rehomed another rescue dog from the SSPCA. When they're at home they get on really well together. However, the problem arises when we go to the beach or for one of our coastal walks. Beena (Sabrina who is 5 and a crossbreed) is very adventurous and will wander off into the bushes and into the sea. When she returns from her "adventures" Max always greets her with a "nip" and can sometimes become quite violent. As I say, they get on so well at home! It's getting to the stage where Max needs to be on his lead all the time in order to restrain him which is so not the point of these outings . Is he jealous that she wanders off and he doesn't feel confident to do so? What's happening to our placid pup? Any advice greatly received xxx.

Well how does she respond to things???
does she nip back?
is it violent play? or is he being straigt out mean?
does she react in a negative way or isnt she even bothered?

Can you describe his "violent" behavior and how beena responds to it?

It is hard to tell from your description if it is rough play or if he's really trying to do harm. Maybe her scent is different once she's had a dip into the water? Hard to say from an "internet distance" ... hope somebody else has some ideas to help.
