Is one dog biting another dogs throat considered agressive?

My daughter’s border collie / English Shepard 8 month old dog, constantly bites the neck of my other daughter’s spitz/border collie mix. Is this agressive behavior? Or is this normal play behavior?

    It’s very hard to answer this without observing the dogs together. It could be play or it could be aggression.

    Is either dog getting hurt? Does your dog stop when the other dog rolls over on its back? Does the dog getting attacked keep coming back for more play?

    If no one is getting hurt and your dog can stop the behavior when he gets signals from the other dog, and the other dog still wants to play, it’s probably just play.
