I was told by the breeder 18 months if you want the dog neutered.

Vets will say as early as possible and really push for no later than 6 months. I'm happy my new vet understands why I'm waiting.

I also saw a reproduction specialist vet. She said for my dog between 12 and 18 months. He has one testicle that did not descend. She also gave the option to remove the one that is still inside, give him a vasectomy and allow him to keep the one that is down. He should not breed. We're still deciding on what course to take.
