My 5 month old is best buds with a jack russel terrier and this sounds like the way they play too! I always feel bad because Mico goes home covered in slobber and generally needing a bath, but the pups have a blast together.
I think the idea of separating them just to check your neighbours dogs comfort level is a good call. If he wants to get right back in there, it's probably just fun play

i think they're playing. when the other dog has had enough of Rocky
he'll let him know. keeping an eye on them and seperating when you
think it's to much is fine.

Mouthing another puppy's head?
My GSD, Rocky, is about 7 months old. My neighbor's yellow lab is about 5 months. They are buddies and play regularly.
Every time they get together Rocky spends half the time mouthing the other dogs head! Since Rocky's mouth is so big, he can fit the other dog's entire head in his mouth. He's not hurting the other dog, but the poor puppy ends up covered in Rocky drool and we spend time pulling them apart.
Is this a dominance behavior? Any ideas how to get Rocky to stop? BTW, he only does it to our neighbor's dog. At the dog park, he's totally fine!
