|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just stumbled on this article: http://dogcare.dailypuppy.com/mean-dogs-bite-other-dogs-neck-2845.html
What particularly caught my attention was this statement:
Other signals of overt aggression could include: placing a paw or chin on the neck or back of another dog and holding it there,..., pressing another dog bodily to the ground or roughly biting his throat or neck.
Archer regularly does this with Ami - I've remarked to Wayne that the way Archer puts his paw on Ami's shoulders and pulls him to the ground is remarkably like a Wild Kingdom video of a lion bringing down a gazelle. Ami doesn't seem to mind - he just rolls over and grabs a piece of Archer...they take turns chewing on each other's neck. The only time I have heard a yelp from either of them is when Archer tried to body slam Ami and was sent flying through the air! Do I need to be concerned here?

I don't think you need to worry, they have been socialized with each other since they were young (from your other posts). However the article is lacking, it's not so much aggression, imo, as it is a dominance issue, young pup testing older pup in who is top dog. Miya plays best with our next door neighbor's husky, he's a year older. When Miya was a young pup he did all the paw on head, etc. roles have now reversed. She is bigger and now she does the paw on head, etc. I wouldn't worry unless growling turns from play growl to a hey stop it growl, or the roll to the ground with teeth to back of neck and they stay in that position. Sounds like they are rough housing it. Archer is getting bigger and he is testing his boundaries.

I wouldn't worry about it, you'll probably see their behavior change as Archer develops anyway. At the moment it sounds like Ami is just letting the kid away with it, he will start to hold his own and not roll over so much as the little one becomes a big un.
Orion's best buddy is a male Briard (wallace) my mums dog who is about 5 months older than Orion and honestly when they get together and start playing it sounds like they are going to war! It really is feral, they charge, pounce, chase, wrestle, bite, body slam you name it lol all while making horrendous noise then they back off play bow at each other and rush in again
Orion is faster and stronger, Wallace is bigger and 15kg heavier so they are a good rough and tumble match, it's not aggression it's just boys being boys
