Default Shutting Down Dog question.

We got a GSD from an owner that had no time for him. We have had him for a week and a half, and has energy all the time, he jumps on counters, steals food, shoes, socks, etc. We take him for walks, play fetch in the yard, and I do 5 to 10 min training with him. We taught him to stay, sit, but the down command and come is taking a while. It seems like he thinks this is not a permanent home. I think we also made a mistake by letting his previous owner come visit. Right now we only crate him while we are gone. He sleeps in the room with us, and is in the house where ever we are. Would shutting him down help him bond and have better house manners.

He is 14 months old.
