I try to keep it within tolerance so at an earlier age they do not tear too much "stuff" up.

IMHO...GSDs drive at a young age outweigh their overall best physical interests (at times).....hmmmmmmm, sounds like young humans.
I think you are fine as long as you have noted the concern.

|Mary Beth||Your pup is lucky to have a playmate and that is how dogs play. But at the same time, the pup gets tired out and is still growing, so yes, I would allow it for short periods of time.|

My pup is just over 4 months and we have another dog and when they play in the yard they tackle one another and run and jump. Is this ok for his hips/ shoulders? If not is it ok maybe for a short period of time so that he can get a little extra exercise/ socialization? I want him to grow and develop properly and I know his body is still developing. Just trying to find out what is commonly acceptable.
