dos all calm down at different tmes. Training your dog giving him a job and something to think about will really help. I have a 6 month old right now and he was always jumping on me. So one day I taught him to sit. I held my hand up for him to look at said sit and he sat. Then I pet him and made a big deal out of him sitting. He jumped and I turned my back to him and would not pet him again until he sat. We did this 5 or 6 times and the next day he ran up to me and sat down to get pet. He learned really fast usually it takes longer than that and treats are a great way to train. You can teach down, shake, beg and even to jump over objects like logs. Just make him mentally tired and he will calm down.

being part lab he may not become "calmer".....HOWEVER being both lab and shepard is a good thing because he should be very easy to train which will of course help with taming the playful Lab side of him..
