The big guy isn't worried about being knocked down by the kittens, he's terrified of hurting them and getting in trouble with his human master.

Might be scared too; we adopted a puppy with adult cats in the house; the puppy grew into a huge dog, but the hierarchy setup by the cats while the dog was tiny and easily scared held on indefinitely.

True: both nature and nurture play key roles in our development process, and neither should be fully ignored if you're trying to find a potential root cause of a behavior.

This. Was going to say, knowing dogs, he's just afraid of getting into trouble.

If it was a little Chihuahua, you just know that it would be on the floor, chasing all the kittens like they were nothing but chewtoys for him.
