Our youngest two do this, but they are play fighting. If they get along most times, then it could be play fighting. But sometimes the youngest and oldest show teeth and that is actually agression. I would look into either option, but it’s hard for me to explain the difference. The youngest and oldest look mad at each other but when the two youngest fight they are sparring, but they still growl and bite at each other playfully, but they would never go too far.

Yes exactly. They are both trying to be the alpha. Try not to worry too much, soon they will figure it out and get used to each other. Right now they are just testing their dominance skills by getting out of hand while playing. It is perfectly normal with puppies. (adorable breed, btw!!) If it looks like they are going to hurt each other, then break it up. But otherwise, allow them to figure it out on their own. Good luck and congrats!!

Our girls do this too and have ever since we got them (they’re the same age, roughly the same breed, and not related).  The smaller one tends to get a little more annoyed with the other when she’s not up for playing (I think she’s a 1/3 cat), and she’ll let her know that she’s not messing around.  When they were still puppies though, the bigger one thought that she was just being extra playful (as opposed to extra annoyed).  It will prob go away as they get used to each other 🙂

OMG!!! I just realized your screen name!  The little one is Capri (9 pounds) and is very obviously my FI’s, but the bigger one (18 pounds) is LOLA and is my baby!!!  The pound thought that she was a boy, so the Lola song was kind of fitting.  How funny!
