How can I train two dogs not to jump up onto people?

The dogs are very excitable and any time the doorbell rings they run to the door, and jump all over whoever walks in, for as much as ten minutes.
One is a 3 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the other is a 3 year old Cockapoo. I am house-sitting for about 17 days and I'll have all the time in the world to spend on them. I'd like to have these dogs be a little better behaved by the time I'm through with them, as I see them pretty often. The only thing I can think of is that they aren't getting enough exercise. I'm planning on taking them on a run every morning to wear them out a bit. Other than that, though I'm a big dog fan I've never actually owned one (let alone two), so I don't know how to do it.
