Do you greet him when you come in? The Irish we have here does that when hubs comes in from work. I have made him ignore him...seems to help. My brother in laws dogs are the same way....he tells us not to say hello to them when we first come in. That way we dont excite the dogs. When I was in obedience class with my first Lab who is now 3, the trainer suggested using a water bottle. Placing it by the door and when the dog jumps up to squirt him with it. My dog of course would just bite at the water. But he doesnt jump up anymore. Guess it worked
