Sometimes dogs wrestle because they're trying to sort out who should have priority over resources in a particular competitive situation--for example, who gets to play with a toy first. The dogs involved will show different body postures and facial expressions from dogs who are simply playing around. Their faces may show tension, and their eyes may be fixed on one another intently. A dog who's trying to gain the upper hand at that moment will pin his opponent to the ground and won't let him up to continue tussling. They might try to mount each other. If a dog allows himself to be mounted, he has submitted. Some dogs will eventually work out who "wins" this particular conflict without resorting to real aggression.
