Biting when excited

My dog is almost 2yo and i have a major concern. When we are outside he gets excites and sometimes jumps on me and bites me. I tried working on training him to sit when he gets like this and that works if i have treats, but i don't always remember to bring out treats any time i go outside. He is often just too excited to listen to commands and i end up just having to grab his collar to get him to stop and when i try this he often will jump around and bite my arms and hands, thinking its a game. How can i discourage this behavior?

Don't restrain an excited dog, that only makes them more amped up. Give the command, sit or down, back away or turn your back to the dog, relax - nothing happening, boring, not playing and, I know you'll stop now attitude. Repeat the command and wait for the dog to comply, then reward with a treat or pets.

I have tried that too but he will jump and bite my back. When you say never restrain an excited dog what else can i do! Let him accost me? I am 7 months pregnant at the moment and he is basically attacking me. I love my do but i am so frustrated by this behavior.

What are you doing when he gets excited? Does he do it inside? Does he get enough exercise?

My dog used to do this and I would make a high pitched yelp and turn my back and ignore. The first time she jumped on me and play bit was the first day I walked her after getting her from her previous owner. But I knew they kept her in a 3x5 outdoor kennel 90% of the day. After she got enough exercise it was only during play she would nip, that's when I would yelp and ignore.
