It is also used during playtime between dogs to convey a message to those around them that they are tired and would like everyone to calm down a little.

For example, when dogs are playing with each other and they start to get excited and the play gradually escalates, one of the dogs will give a calming signal to go over.

After a few minutes, the other dogs will be quiet and all the other dogs will lie down.
