NILIF (Nothing in Life is Free). Dog looses all priviledges and needs to work for everything. You can google NILIF and get good info. The dog needs more control and management until he learns what is acceptable and not. Set him up for success by preventing the behaviours you don't want - the more he gets to 'practice' behaviours, the more ingrained they will be, the harder it will be to re-train him.
He is at a difficult age for most people to handle - up the control, up the exercise, up the training, but let him know he is a good dog, set him up to do good things. If you don't want him to jump on people, have him sit. He can't jump and sit at the same time. If you can't get him to sit and hold a sit work with a trainer who can observe how you interact with him and they can give you specific pointers on how to 'fix' how you work with him.
