This is what I do with Scout.

Always have a extra nuggets/treats handy in a pocket. If someone comes up have them ignore the puppy until you make him sit. Once he sits give theperson a treat, which will make him get excited, and have them make him sit. Do not give the treat until he sits for ten seconds. It's training him to sit when people approach.

oh and I always tell people it's ok to pet him, as long as I can make him sit first.
After he sits and gets praise...he can wiggle and meet them nice. If he jumps, I make him sit again.
