Help with our naughty dog

is a typical example of what my dog does when I arrive at home. He is 5 years old and has always been this way. Help us get him under control.

We have tried ignoring him, squirting him with a water bottle, intimidating him, and crating him. When I come home he FREAKS out. Spinning, shrieking, jumping, biting, running... Currently I am using the ignore method. You can see how well it works.
Data point: If I am home already when hubby arrives home, dog goes slightly crazy. If I am not home when hubby arrives home, dog does not go crazy. Just greets him at the door with a bit of a tail wag.
