Poodles can be a handful, for sure. It sounds like it's a good idea to give Bang a break, and either redirect Bobby toward another game or ask him to settle somewhere to calm down. I had a male who would get overstimulated playing with certain dogs. It was never over the top, and no one ever minded, but I knew better and I could see that he was over threshold. Depending on the situation, I would take him for a calm sniff walk, send him to his crate for a power nap, or give him a bully stick to chew in a fenced-off area. The idea was to separate him from the other dog and redirect his energy. Go with your gut, and give Bang a break.

You can also add in more impulse control training. Look at that, relaxation protocol, and similar games are really helpful.
