Playing really rough?

Cooper is a little over 6 mos now and we have another puppy Zoe that is a little over a year old. How do you know when they are getting too rough with eachother? Cooper is about 50 lbs and Zoe is only 30lbs so when they run a round it gets really crazy inside the house. They like to nip at each other and often Zoe ends up on the wrong side. I'm worried that they are playing too rough. We have told them NO when it gets out of hand, but is there any way to help them relax around eachother or is it just puppy stage?

I think it's normally. When Bear was younger (3 months ish and around 25 lbs) he played with two large huskies and two large lab mixes. All four dogs were between 60-80 lbs. They played rough but when he was tired, he laid down and vice versa. This past weekend, we had a play date with his litter mates. They went over an hour rough housing non-stop. A few times things got too rough and one yelped but then they got back together. I would occasionally call Bear to me and treat him and hold him still for a min then let him go back out there.

I agree it looks pretty painful and rough to us but most of the time it isn't. Chester plays with a pitbull all the one she's very friendly and loves when Chester comes over probably because shes able to play with someone her size and likewise for Chester. The first time I was always afraid because it seem like it was getting serious but I come to realize its just play. If it does get serious she lets chester know

Correct me if I'm wrong but if the puppy is playing too 'rough' with another dog and get's hurt - I'm sure you can tell by him yelping or other means of letting you know what's going on?

Our other dog is not very vocal, there are times when they will yelp but others when they are done Zoe will have nice red scrapes and scabs on her....I guess my main concern is their teeth. They are always going after necks and faces. Looks a lot worse than it is I guess

If your pup isn't giving any verbal cues, I would suggest watching the body language of both dogs. When my pup tucks his tail and high tails it to my side and the other dog is racing after him, I'll put each of them in a quiet time just for a few minutes to calm the situation down.
