Yeah, we have one of those. And you're right, it comes from an excess of excitement and energy. And generally speaking, when they are barking and carrying on like that it's usually harder for them to think clearly. You'll probably never totally get rid of it totally...but teaching her a quiet command, and being sure you NEVER reward the barking when she's training can help to minimize it. Try and get some of her energy out before you train, train with less motivating food (maybe just her kibble), and try not to be too exciting yourself- give commands in a calm even voice and try to make your body posture flat as well.
