The whining when excited sounds like the breed to me. When Frag gets put in new situations or very exciting ones, he screams/whines like a banshee. That's pretty normal, but if he's getting worked up over people coming over or YOU coming home, that should be curbed.
Are you talking about him going nuts when you walk in after you get home, when guests walk in, etc? If so, work on coming in and IGNORING him crated until he calms down, or if he's loose in the house, walk in, and as soon as he starts freaking out, go back outside and repeat. The point of this is to downplay entrances/exits so that the dogs do not get anxious or excited when people come home.
