I have a 1 1/2 year old Black Lab/Golden Retreiver mix.  He is a huge beautiful dog.  He is an awesome dog, listens very well, plays ball (never stops) but I have a problem when people come over or I take him to my son's school.

He become very hyper, agitated when people come into the house.  He wants all the attention.  He will not leave them alone.  He also at this point will not listen to anybody and does his own thing.

The times when I take him to school, if anyone walks by or comes up to him to give him pets, he also freaks out.  How do I stop him from becoming so agitated.  I know all he wants to do is love them up and give them kisses but if he could tone it down a little, it would not be so bad.  He just doesn't realize how BIG he is.  I thought of using treats in my pocket and when someone comes by or next to him, pull out a treat to try to calm him down.

If anyone has any suggestion, I would greatly appreciate it.  I love him very much and he is an AWESOME dog but his people skills need improving.  

Thanks a bunch!!!!
