They are just play fighting. Nothing to worry about. Might be a good idea to teach them to play outside and have doggy down time inside.

Definitely playing, looks like Winston and my parents dog... when they get too excited and start smashing into stuff we generally get their attention using the focus command and treats. I'll get Winston to go through some basic commands (sit, lay down, shake, etc.) and then get him to calm down, and my Mom will do the same thing with Sully separately. Once they have both settled down they normally start playing more gently again, so basically it's just a matter of redirecting their focus onto you and off of each other.
But if they really want to play fight I will just put them outside, then they have the whole yard to run around in and I don't have to worry about them breaking anything.
