In sumo, this move is called oshitaoshi, when one rikishi (wrestler) uses his weight to push his opponent to the ground.
In the rules of Official Grand Sumo, however, rikishi are not usually furry or have four legs.

But dogs don't know that, so perhaps they are practicing to become the next Sumo champs!! V
