My dog Riku has/had this problem but he is getting much better using this approach -- WAITING for him to sit (not telling him to sit) before moving forward.
It makes them want to exercise some restraint (sitting) to get the reward (walking) without being told.
An additional tip with this technique is to put him in a down stay BEFORE you start taking the steps that get him riled up. You wouldn't wait for him to sit at this point of course, because there is no indication yet that anything is doing to happen. If he starts to get excited when you put your shoes on (as Riku does), then put him into a down stay before doing that. If he breaks the down/stay, CALMLY put him back, then go back to putting your shoes on.
I found that if I do the steps of putting my shoes on, getting the leash ready, etc. before telling him to do anything, he just gets himself excited then it's much harder for him to restrain himself. Frankly, it also gets me a bit excited and or slightly anxious, that "here we go again", "why wont he calm down!" etc. If he starts to restrain himself from the get-go (the down stay), it is more likely he'll never reach the higher arousal point, and you can get the leash, put your shoes on, etc. in calmness and peace.
When opening the door (which you should do once he has decided to sit), if he starts getting up, close the door. Very quickly he'll learn to stay seated until you start the walk.
It's all about teaching him that the reward (walk) comes when he shows some self control. Don't let him out of the house when he's huffing and puffing and wound like a spring. You may also want to try the above steps, then park him at the door and wait for him to decrease in arousal somewhat, but don't expect instant miracles and don't be surprised if you have to wait 10 minutes or more.
