The most effective training I have seen for this behavior, was simply twisting away from the dog when they jumped, and then not paying them any attention until they were sitting down calmly. The dog in question was easily excited, but within about three or four times, he sat and watched the person. She never said a word while he jumped, just turned, then when he sat and watched her, she turned back around, praised him and gave him a treat.

Put a collar and leash around the dogs neck and try inviting a friend inside the home. Once you open the front door your friend will come in and the dog will want to jump your friend. When the dog comes toward him he will want to jump. As the dog is jumping give the leash a good yank. Don't do it hard just get the dogs attention. I saw this tip on the show The Dog Wisperer

You need to keep a spray bottle filled with water available and give your dog a squirt whenever he misbehaves.
