Dogs get "red rocket" when they're excited or just really pleasurably relaxed.

"Red rockets" are associated with excitement and arousal. I have seen this happen even when an animal is playing with a toy he really likes. It is really normal and nothing to be worried about. Neutering can help if this is troubling the owners.
