As the owner of a very excitable puppy we have tried loads of things and the only thing that truly works is tickling her!!!
If we should Mr Tickle fingers she stops dead in her tracks and waits for us to tickle/massage her back and tummy! It stops her biting, jumping and generally running about like a mad thing. The few moments it takes makes her forget what she was doing and she soon settles down. It's the one way we can get her to drop her ball too!
Don't ask me why it works - but I'm not going to complain
