I felt i had to put wiley on a lead this morning as he was been too rough , he was play fighting with a 6 month old retriever, now the retriever is soft as anythin but its massive , and the pair of them were play fighting ,but the retriver is no where near as rough and is stil puppy like, there was no growling whatsover but wiley was biting its ears and trying to pin it it down , i said to the lady will he tell him off if he hurts him , and she said no he wont , so i felt it was only right to put wiley on a lead , he deffo wasnt been nasty but after 15 minutes of playing i felt he was getting more mouthy and was worried he was goin to hurt , is this normal staffy behavour , tbh most dogs he runs away from and wants them to chase him , but this dog he just play fights and nothing else ?

Think you done the right thing, time out to show him that his behaviour wasn't acceptable, if he calmed down I would of then tried again and then if still too rough put him back on

I would have done the same honey - its easy for SBT to go OTT with play - We taught ours this way - and when play got too excitable we used the word enough and placed them on lead and stopped play - now we can use the word without the lead xx

hopefully if i keep saying enough and putting him on the lead he will get the hint LOL , he loves been off lead and playing , but as you say they get OTT , he also does this with another smallish dog (working cocker ) and i wont alow him off lead at all near him , he is just too much , but barney is of good size so i let him off with him , its only today he got quite carried away , other times hes not been too bad , but i must admit barney is as bad just not as rough given he's not a staffy , im lucky really that most ppl have accepted wiley and they dont mind him playing with there dogs

Kassi and Raffi do it, I shout out "nicely" and they calm it down. I am sure if it hurt the other dog would say so or attempt to get away.

You did the right thing though better safe than sorry always.
