Subject: Teach Max some manners......

The problem isn't that Emma doesn't hear him coming, the problem is that Max has no manners. It's just downright rude for him to come into a home where there's a resident dog and disrespect her like that. If Emma's not going to correct him, YOU need to do it. Every time he tries to get rough with Emma, stop him before he gets started. When he's headed for Emma, step between them. Verbally correct him before he reaches her - "ah-ah-ah-ah!!" and if he ignores you and slams into her anyway, put him on a leash and put him in a down stay or crate him. Simply don't let him do that to her.

Spend some special one-on-one time with Emma. Crate Max for an hour once or twice a day and spend that time with Emma. Then switch them - crate Emma or put her in another room - and do some obedience training with Max. And supervise them carefully when they're together and stop him before he can run her over.
