You are seeing it right. The dog is licking his lips, and the dog is looking away, and avoiding. In 52 seconds, I can't be sure the dog is stressed because the kids are rough-housing, or because it has to maintain its down stay (definitely looks compelled to stay in a DOWN position). But the stress is definitely there.
