new puppy is rude to older dog, help!

I have a dog whom has been the only dog for the past two years. We recently was given a new puppy.

So, this puppy is rude and would take food, chews, and treats from the old dog. The old dog is now air nipping and barking at the puppy when she tries to take things, but she still persists.

So, what is the best way to prevent my older dog from being too pissed off at the new puppy? Or should I focus on teaching the puppy manners?

Thanks! At first I was letting the older dog correct the puppy but can't take the hint. Would putting the older dog in another room while training the pup be ideal or should they be able to see each other?
