They are trying to establish the order of rank. You need to nip it in the bud now, or it will become an issue later. When one is on the couch, the other needs to be at a down stay away from the couch. Begin implementing NILIF (nothing in life is free) No more getting on the couch without permission. They must sit and wait for permission to do all things. After awhile, they will stop trying to bulldoze each other to get what they want and they'll start looking at you first to see what you want.
Also start working on a leave it command as well as a drop it command. This may help cool things off when the "play" becomes too heated.
Learn their body language. In time you'll be able to tell if they're being jerks, or just trying to play.
