dos all calm down at different tmes. Training your dog giving him a job and something to think about will really help. I have a 6 month old right now and he was always jumping on me. So one day I taught him to sit. I held my hand up for him to look at said sit and he sat. Then I pet him and made a big deal out of him sitting. He jumped and I turned my back to him and would not pet him again until he sat. We did this 5 or 6 times and the next day he ran up to me and sat down to get pet. He learned really fast usually it takes longer than that and treats are a great way to train. You can teach down, shake, beg and even to jump over objects like logs. Just make him mentally tired and he will calm down.
